Accolades

Zhuhai City is a special economic zone near Hong Kong that is a resort area for Chinese tourists, and it is also a area where some people from nearby Hong Kong and Macau go for entertainment because the prices are lower. During the late 19th century and early 20th century due to the presence of the foreign colonies at Hong Kong and Macau, Zhuhai became prominent for trade and education in south China, and the area was more quickly modernized. This transformation of Zhuhai from a backwaters to a leading center of societal change happened partly through the influence of Chinese who returned to Zhuhai after working in the West. The Zhuhai Museum is a place to learn about the history of the area, and it sits in a garden.
