Xiangzhou District is the central urban area of Zhuhai city. It is located on the seacoast of the South China Sea and the west bank of the Pearl River estuary, with Hong Kong to its east across the sea gulf, Macao to its south and the economically developed Pearl River Delta at its rear.
It enjoys a uniquely favorable geographic location, which makes it to be an important port linking China mainland with Hong Kong and Macao as well as a significant front gate for the foreign trades and international contacts and communications.
Xiangzhou is based on the hill at the back and overlooking the sea. It is of the subtropical marine climate, with an annual average temperature of 24 degrees C. Flowers blossom in all seasons of the year, trees and woods flourish, which makes the scenes picturesque.
The District has a total space area of over 400 square kilometers, with a permanent population of 738,600. Under the District administration, there are 8 sub-district offices of Shishan, Wanzai, Gongbei, Jida, Xiangwan, Meihua, Qianshan and Cuixiang, as well as three towns of Tangjia Bay, Nanping and Hengqin.
The District has fine traditions of civilization, carrying on the past and opening a way for the future. Since the establishment of the District in the year of 1984, drastic changes have taken place in Xiangzhou. A small fishing village in the past has now been turned into an emerging garden-like urban district along the seacoast.
