Zhongshan Things to Do

  • Cuijing Bar Street

    Several Chinese style bars in close vicinity of each other. Price of a bottle of Red Label Johnnie Walker or dozen beers is about 350 RMB which is typical anywhere in Zhongshan. Good atmosphere on the weekend, especially at Park 9 around midnight. There are many other good Chinese and Western bars sprinkled throughout Zhongshan.

  • Have Late Night...

    There are many outdoor barbecue restaurants that pop up around 8 or 9 pm every night of the week and stay open into the wee hours of the night serving meat skewers, fried noodles, and beer. It is very cheap and a great way to feel the relaxed, Zhongshan evening atmosphere.

  • As for pizza

    OK, I don't know about the Greek and Italian entrees but I found the Meat Lovers pizza to be without any flavor at all ! Not sure how that can be but it's true. The cheese, the small shreds of meat and the crust had absolutely no taste whatsoever and no, I didn't have a cold.Italy Square was a better taste and better value.

  • Best dim sum in Zhongshan

    Zhongshan International Restaurant serves the best dim sum in town. The quality is great compared to american restaurants I've gone to for dim sum. I've tried the one in Fuhua hotel and it doesn't compare to this one quality wise. Its more expensive than all the other restaurants though but thats what you'd expect from a 5 star hotel. Nothing...

  • The best Greek and Italian dining

    Taverna offers genuine Greek and Italian dishes cooked by a very talented Greek chef. The dishes draw on local seafood resources used in traditional Greek dishes and very tasty pizzas amongst other treats. The lamb cutlets with lemon and oregano potatoes are my personal favourite. The decor is a soft blue with a definite European feel. There is...

  • Killing time in the Fuhua lobby

    This is a normal western styled cafe shop. Most people just order drinks here while they're waiting in the lobby for their friends or something. I had to wait for a bus to go back to Guangzhou in 2 hrs so I was just chillin here for a couple hrs. I ordered the coffee and roasted pidgeon. Coffee was... well nothing to brag about but the pidgeon was...

  • Decent Dim Sum

    This is the Fuhua chinese restaurant located on the 15th floor. Its your basic chinese restaurant where they serve dim sum in the morning/afternoon and chinese cuisines at night. The price here is pretty cheap compared to International's dim sum dishes. But the quality here was not as good as International's. But overall, it wasn't that bad and I...

Zhongshan Transportation

  • Motor Bike Taxi

    A great way to see the city and get around cheaply is to take a motorbike taxi. Of course, it is more dangerous than the bus or a taxi, but it is much faster than either and only a little more expensive than a bus ride. You can ride 3-5 km for 5 yuan. Make sure you bargain! A good tactic for bargaining that has worked well for me is to walk away...

  • Bus station next to Fuhua hotel

    When you're at Zhongshan and ready to leave the city, there's a bus station right next to Fuhua hotel. You can't miss it if you just ask a bellboy or lobby person where it is. Its literally around the corner. This bus station/stop is a great way out of Zhongshan since it makes stop at all the other major cities near Zhongshan especially Guangzhou.

    There's a famous food stall that sells Shenwan Pineapple, aptly named "Fat Lady" Pineapple Stall on the outskirts of the city. These pineapples are really sweet and juicy, but yet it is only the size of a fist. You can buy 4 very small pineapples for RMB10 or 2 medium sized for RMB10.

Zhongshan Warnings and Dangers

  • Try Not To Get Ripped Off

    Getting ripped off in Zhongshan is understandable, I have been in China more than three years and still get ripped off from time to time. It annoys me of course and I used to tell my Chinese students my misadventures in China. They told me this is normal and that since I am clearly not from around there, people will try to take advantage of me and...

  • Pickpockets

    Be very careful to hold your purse or bag in front of you. And do not wear your backpack on your back, always wear it in front of you. It happens a lot that someone will ride past you on a motorbike and try to steal you bag, as they think you are rich and unaware because you are a foreigner.

Zhongshan Favorites

  • by Kache Written Feb 11, 2005

    Favorite thing: If you're traveling somewhere in South-China you could make a stop in Zhongshan if you like to avoid tourist traps -this isn't one! You'll propably be the only tourist there...And if you're western, you'll get quite much attention, positively speaking.

    Fondest memory: Friend's Bar. Nice place to hang around, there were always people who liked to come and chat. Owner and other staff were extremly friendly and helpful.
