Zhuhai Nightlife

  • Pub vibe

    A 72 Yuan taxi ride from the Yuanming Palace (see: Things to do), lies Táng rén shāngyè jiē (street).This weirdly western precinct contains quite a few foreign food outlets. An area worth exploring if you have the time but it's distance from the main central districts should be noted. The location is in Tangjia, which is more like a small...

  • Largin' Time!

    This is easily the best nightclub in Zhuhai thanks to an ecletic cowd and the banginest choons in the city. Not pretentious like some of the other bars, but made only for partying, dancing and bad behaviour. The club is split into 3 parts, Today, being the popiest room, Today, a kind of chill out area and Tomorrow, the hard core party til dawn...

Zhuhai Transportation

  • The Guangdong Greenway

    The Zhuhai section of the Greenway is a project several years into development (which means there are no cranes or diggers to deal with!). More than 300km of bicycle paths connect several cities across Guangdong Province and many of Zhuhai's tourist sites and seems an ideal way of getting around. All the transport options in Zhuhai seemed to...

    Islamic run restaurant next to the Backerei bakery on Shihua East Road. Didn't eat here but desperately wanted to as regularly eat at these restaurants in Ganzhou where I live. Clean and tasty colourful food, served fast and made beautifully by the talented minority races of China who "pull" and prepare the noodles fresh each time ... truly an...

  • Breakfast in Zhuhai

    A clean and small bakery with fresh bread all day. Reminiscent of the British cafe ("caf'"), serves tea, coffee and juices, even with several set breakfasts options. I ate there twice, finding a delicious bacon and bread wrap that reminded me of the good old bacon sandwich. They also have a wide selection of pastries and bread rolls, great to store...

Zhuhai Local Customs

    Money out of the Far East is as dazzling as the signs, pics and symbols (all beautiful in Zhuhai) on it. But I just do not understand one thing of it! And was happy to leave my brother with the "money" problems ...What I did understand was that in Zhuhai you cannot pay with Hongkong or Macau Dollars. Actually I heard stories of people managing to...

  • Colourful People

    It is written that in Zhuhai in the Neolithic Age (some 4.000 - 5.000 years ago) people already lived in this area. According to legendary myths they fell apart into the "mountain people" and the "ocean-people". Maybe the famous Zhuhai Fisher Girl has some to do with it (I will check on my next trip to Zhuhai).The "mountain-people" got famous for...

Zhuhai Warnings and Dangers

  • Pickpockets on the beach

    The beach in Zhuhai at night is very beautiful and usually full of both kids and adults having fun. It is also very dark.Don't let this festive atmosphere allow you to become distracted. If you're not paying attention while sitting on the sand, it is very easy for purse thieves to sneak up behind you, grab your purse or bag and quickly disappear...

Zhuhai Tourist Traps

  • Jeannkelly's Profile Photo

    by Jeannkelly Written Dec 26, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When shopping in Zhuhai, never ever believe the price given to you by the shop owners/ sales person when you ask the price. Make sure you bargain at least 1/3 of the price (you could go down to 1/4 too!). From there you both haggle to your desired price.

    Unique Suggestions: Caution, once you start haggling, make sure you meant to buy the stuff... otherwise if you haggle and leave, the sales person will run after you... worse case scenario, they'll curse you in sticky Chinese bad words, hehe ;-)

    Fun Alternatives: Once haggling, the best price equilibrium (time for you to buy the item) for both of you and the shop owner is at least the mid price, between your starting price and his/her given price...

Zhuhai Off The Beaten Path

  • Shihua Shan, a (small) mountain in the...

    Very close to some of my other tips in Zhuhai, on Shihua Dong Lu, is the entrance to Shihua Shan, or Shihua hill/mountain. A small climb this one, paved all the way, is a perfect morning walk if your hotel is nearby, or stop at the Backerei cafe before or after. Shihua Shan is really clean and well maintained with several sections designed for...
