Donguan Introduction

Dongguan is located in the mid-south of Guangdong Province and in the east of the Pearl River Delta. 50 kilometers (about 31 miles) south of Guangzhou, and 90 kilometers (about 56 miles) north of Shenzhen, Dongguan is 47 nautical miles from Hong Kong as well as 48 nautical miles from Macau. Currently, Dongguan plays a vital role in the communication between Guangzhou and Hong Kong.

In the year of 331 Dongguan was first built as a county but the history of this area can be traced back to the Neolithic Age. About 150 years ago, the famous Incineration of Opium during the Opium War took place in Humen Town, Dongguan City, opening a new chapter of Chinese modern history. Now, visitors have opportunities to visit the most complete ancient battlefield remains in the world. During the current era of reform and opening-up in China, Dongguan's economy maintains a substantial and rapid development, making Dongguan an important international industrial city. By 1988, Dongguan was upgraded to be a prefecture-level city of Guanggong Province.

At present, covering an area of 2,465 square kilometers (about 952 square miles), Dongguan City administers 28 towns and 4 subdistricts. In the year 2005, the population of Dongguan reached 7,506,300, including 5,849,800 temporary residents. Additionally, Dongguan is the hometown of 280,000 overseas Chinese and more than 70,000 compatriots in Hong Kong. All of them have made lots of contributions to the development of Dongguan.
