Dongguan is known for its importance as ‘the world’s factory’, drawing businesses from around the globe, but in recent years it has also become a hotspot for leisure travellers seeking romantic sea views and scenic historical spots that tell of the region’s exciting history.

Humen Fortress
Humen is a town with historic and cultural uniqueness near Dongguan. Along the east bank of the Pearl River estuary, military facilities such as fortresses, walls, gatehouses, barracks, war lanes, underground channels, and wells are all well preserved in China’s most complete and largest collection of preserved sea-defence relics. These facilities carry precious historical information on the Opium War, the Second Opium War, the Sino-French War, and the Humen Sea Battle of the Sino-Japanese War.
