Dongguan, China: What to see and do
Located within the Pearl River Delta, Dongguan’s proximity to Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, and Macau has seen it rise from its roots as an agricultural town to become a bustling manufacturing hub. Frugal fashionistas can flounce off to Huanghe Fashion Town, which houses one of China’s largest clothing and fashion wholesale markets where items can be bought at wholesale prices even in small quantities. Those looking for a novel adventure can walk the largely empty corridors of the New South China Mall, the largest shopping mall in the world.
Dongguan was also an unfortunate stage for events and battles during the First Opium War and the Second World War – large quantities of opium were seized and destroyed in the town of Humen, and the city played host to guerrilla resistance against the Japanese during the Second World War. Visitors can go to the Opium War Museum to see preserved artifacts and relics of Lin Zexu destroying opium, and to the Humen Naval Battle Museum, which focuses on the sea war during the Opium War.
