Just to show that the new Zhuhai website is for you, cityofzhuhai.com will put you up overnight at an exotic hot springs resort, or in elegant hotels around Guangdong, or provide other gifts just for doing a great job telling your story: Zhuhai Through My Eyes.

That’s right; all that is required is that you have been to, lived in or worked in Zhuhai and have something humorous or captivating to write about. Who doesn’t? All the Zhuhai English website asks in return is for your awareness that this is the place to go for information on investment, travel, news and living in the delightful coastal city of romance.
