City Intro
Located in the mid-south of Guangdong province and east of the Pearl River estuary, Dongguan borders Guangzhou on the north and Shenzhen on the south. A former county, Dongguan became a city in September 1985 and was then upgraded to prefecture city status in January 1988. Resting mainly on hills and alluvial plains, which descends from east to west, the city is also partly surrounded by sea with its coastline reaching 115.98 kilometers (inland water routes included). Thanks to its 5000 years long history and glorious revolutionary tradition, Dongguan has become a well-known historic and cultural city in south Guangdong. Dongguan has many ancient cultural sites dating back to the Ming and Qing dynasties, such as the Keyuan Garden, one of the four most famous gardens in Guangdong Province, Jin‘aozhou Pagoda and Yuan Chonghuan‘s former home of Ming dynasty, Huangqi Ancient Temple in Song Dynasty. You can also be fascinated by charming sceneries in Dongguan, such as the seascape, fields of crops and banana trees, hills of ripe lichee trees, rivers with floating lotus etc.
