你好, 你好吗? 好,谢谢
And what if I told you there is a place where you can find beautiful nature as well as crowded city streets? May I present to you: 珠海 - Zhuhai

Situated in Guangdong province in the south-east of China in the delta of the Pearl River, you can find a small city called Zhuhai. Well... small in Chinese context, with a population of over 1 million and a coast line of almost 700km this isn't exactly what we, in Europe consider as a small city. In Zhuhai you can find a great variety of things to do and to see. It's a beautiful city with amazing nature and some really quiet places yet you can still discover the "typically Chinese" crowded city streets. But now the question remains: What should you do when you get there? Where should you go? What should you see? In this post I will share my favourite places with you, as well as some suggestions of my friends there.

The Waterfalls

One of the most beautiful places to go to in Zhuhai are the waterfalls. The nice thing about it is that you can go there to swim, but you will have to climb soms stairs first. Once you get up there, the view is amazing and it is one of the best places to clear your mind. This is absolutely not a very known or crowded place which is nice, since this is something you want to experience in all peace and calm. When you take a look at the surroundings, the city, the nature... You feel so extremely small! It is a very inspirational and beautiful place, high above the busy city life. 

Macau

Macau is an autonomous region on the western side of the Pearl River Delta, bordered by Zhuhai. It is perfect for a day off but you should keep in mind that you have to pass the customs before being able to enter. There are a lot of people in Macau as it is the most densely populated region in the world. Another thing Macau is very known for is gambling with some of the greatest casinos. You can find a great blend of Portuguese and Chinese culture and religion here. Definitely worth a visit! (Photo: Pixabay)

Zhuhai Chimelong International Circus City

Last but definitely not least, Chimelong International Circus! If you are looking for THE must see in Zhuhai, here it is! Chimelong Zhuhai consists of the Chimelong Ocean Kingdom theme park, Hengqin Theatre, the biggest hotel in mainland China, the Hengqin Bay hotel and the biggest penguin and circus themed hotels in China.

But why exactly should you visit Chimelong? Well... They have an amazing circus show, I can guarantee you that it is truly amazing!  It is more than a show, it's an experience. First of all there is a 360 degree stage which means you can see the show from every possible angle.

There are many different acts from all over the world: Frozen Ice (USA), Puro Gaucho (Argentina), Nightmares (The Netherlands), Super Silva (Brazil), ... The visual effects of this show are great! You should add this one to your bucket list!

Meet the artists

Meet the Magus Utopia / Nightmares team! Lody Van Naerssen and Niki Dimdiri are dancers from the Netherlands and both working for Chimelong, they perform in the Nightmares act. It is a pleasure to see them on stage so if you are currently in Zhuhai or plan on going there some time soon, go check them out in the show because they are amazing!

Lody: "It is beautiful here, it is a great blend of nature, silent places and crowded city streets. People work really hard here but the atmosphere is really nice."

Favorite place: the waterfall, it is perfect for refreshment and some time off working!
