Zhuhai- A very small introduction

Zhuhai, within China is known as the holiday destination, it is a very pretty place, but 25 years ago it was not here. Zhuhai was originally a small fishing village but the government decided to make it a Special Economic Zone, and in 25 years in grew to a population roughly the same size as Birmingham in the UK.

Because of this, there are barely any locals, everyone is a foreigner here to the locals. Beware of coming to Zhuhai on Chinese New Year because as many expats will tell you it becomes a ghost town. This is because everyone goes home, and since nobody really comes from Zhuhai, it becomes empty.

Zhuhai is in the South of China and can be seen below:
