Denglongsha is a fishing village in Caijiao Township, Zhuhai.

The locals live like their ancient ancestors and the village’s distinct architecture is among the most recognized in the Pearl River Delta region.

During traditional festivals, villagers hold singing competitions under a kapok tree. Most of the songs are folk songs about fishing. A wedding on the water, one of the biggest celebrations in the village, is also a grand event which can only be found in traditional Cantonese fishing villages in the Doumen area. It combines Cantonese culture with Hakka culture. The wedding ceremony is now a national intangible cultural heritage.

A boat trip around Denglongsha is also a must-try.

Denglongsha connects Xijiang River. It is also a good idea to sail along the river in a fishing boat and pay a short visit to the South China Sea.

Transportation: Take a coach to Zhuhai from any long-distance coach stations in the city and take a taxi to the village.
