Dongguan Things to Do

  • Crap River

    I thought rivers surrounding NYC had their problems. Nitrogen levels are always surpassing where they should be making it nearly inhabitable under the surface for the fishies. Though the pollution does exist in NY there is hardly a time the pollution is as visible as I saw in Donguan. The moseying of silver tinted water passes through islands of...

For example, you can restaurant selling Peking Duck and restaurant selling Jiangsu dishes all in the...

    Opposite the Sheraton Hotel in Houjie has stretches of streets with alot of shops and boutiques (not those high class but mid range ones) and of course alot of restaurants that sell really delicious food. So one can start with dinner at 7pm and proceed to shopping with sports shop like NIKE and ADDIDAS, then you can settle at a foot reflexology...

  • Chinese massage

    My girlfriend and I decided to get a Chinese massage at the Garden Hotel. It is the most luxurious hotel in our town and we felt that we deserved to spoil ourselves. We each paid 140 yuan for an hour and a half massage. They let us have a hot shower with the best water pressure I have felt in months. After we put on special robes and laid down in a...

    There is a English Pub in Dongguan, Guangdong, China.
    It is called "One for the Road".
    They have 7 draught beers on tap (5 of which are imported from England & Ireland),as well as a wide selection of bottled beers.

    The food menu is traditional English pub grub which makes One for the Road not only one of the top Dongguan Bars, but also a favourite eating haunt for the expats in Dongguan.

Dongguan Transportation

  • Applefool's Profile Photo

    by Applefool Written Sep 4, 2006

    Ok, I encourage taxi than other transport in Dongguan as it is reasonably cheap and safer.

    Its is better to always ask the driver to go by meter (unless you know the place well and know roughly the fares to get to the place). In fact alot cab drivers go by meter within the city (unless you really look like a carrot).

    The fare starts from RMB7.00 upon boarding and jump RMB1.00 every say 5 lamposts. A rough guide would be: 8 mins smooth drive costs RMB13-15.00 (less than USD2.00).

    Overall, it is convenient (you can easily get a cab on the road); safer and reasonably cheap.

    And my personal preference: Take the green cab instead the red ones. Green cabs are more spacious and they usually maintain their vehicle. ^.^

    Be careful with Kaever Hotel in 66 Zhenxing South Road. They have a policy to shut down the air con from midnight and stay shut at least through 8 in the morning. You may want to consider other options if you visit the city in the summer.

    Despite clear warning sign requiring the fire exit door to stay shut, the one on my floor was never shut during my stay.
