Shantou Highlights

Shantou is located in southeast of Guangdong, China, adjacent to the South China Sea. It is known as "the gateway of east Nanling Mountains and the communication hub of Southeast China" because of its advantageous geographical location. The city covers an area of 2,064 square kilometers and has a population of 4.795 million people. It has jurisdiction over six districts----Longhu, Jinping, Haojiang, Chenghai, Chaoyang, Chaonan and Nan'ao County. The SEZ itself takes up 234 square kilometers of the area.


We recommend in Shantou and Surrounds
◎ Visit Queshi Scenic Spot, Ranking first of the top eight attractions of Shantou City, the Queshi Scenic Spot is separated from the city by the Que Shi Sea in the south of the Shantou Gulf. Surrounded by vast stretches of blue water on three sides, it is just like a miniature garden sitting in the sea. Characterized by superb subtropical beaches and seashore scenery, the scenic spot is an excellent integration of imposing sea, magnificent mountains, rare stones and mysterious caves.


◎Visit the Hanwengong's Memorial Temple Chen Cihong was a wealthy overseas Chinese who once managed rice selling in Hong Kong and Thailand during the 19th century. He and his sons have built many residences in their hometown since 1871, of which those constructed in Chenghai City are the most famous ones. Building originally commenced in 1901. The four residences have survived weathering for hundreds of years and are kept perfectly intact. They were designed mysteriously combining the western and classic Chinese architecture styles. In any one of the four residences, you can find small rooms opening off another big room; the stairs, corridors and overhead walkways connecting all the rooms together. This kind of layout makes you feel like walking in a maze. Additionally, decorations in the rooms are classically elegant but without losing exotic flavors. The exquisite statues, carvings and calligraphic works all show the extraordinary cultural appreciation of the Chen's family
