I've really only spent time in Humen Town (part of Dong Guan City). Humen is probably not the most glamorous tourist spot but is wonderful for one, like me, wanting to 'escape from the world' and have a very comfortable, relaxing time in a magnificent hotel which is like a home away from home.
do your own research before get into this city. dun ever depend or listen to the taxi drivers. A restaurant located at the street behind Hui Hua Hotel is famous for BBQ oysters and other seafood such as clam,shell and etc.
The claypot porridge there also excellent. Its a must try for me.
Dongguan City is a city of in-official 12,000,000 people. Its huge. Distances are incredible big. The city is planed well with several new districts which have nice streets, parks, shopping centers and night life areas.
The city built's currently a subway system which shall be finished by 2016. Dongguan has several museum's which are mostly unknown to foreign visitors. To find them you should talk to your hotel, they will sure help you. They have history museum, opium war museum, war museum, culture museum, and a old building village like museum. Dongguan is full of large well maintained parks and lakes. You will find little mountains with Pagodas on top.
DG is a big city with 2 train stations - one dongtie and one gaotie It is almost the central of Guangdong Province and travelling to SZ or Guangzhou will not pose difficult for visitors/ foreigners
Manufacturing hub of southern China. Lot of great deal if you fish around. Travel around is very easy with reasonable taxi fare and high speed train connecting other major city.
Dong Guan is a very big city and so many diff area but every area has there special food, very good. Foot massage very good and cheap compared with Shenzhen!
This is a city full of nightlife & some scenic attraction too. Nightlife in places like Chang Ping, Chang An etc just to name a few will get you going.
It is also quite convienent to travel around by cabs. There is also railway station that can take you to ShenZhen & Guangzhou.
The traffic in the morning is horrible. Avoid taking taxi in the rush hour (8~10). Night life here is great with many night clubs and disco pub.
Have a hair-cut is quick, nice and cheap. RMB45 for man includes everything. Variety choices of all kinds of Chinese food available along the street, do pick a clean one!
had no time to enjoy facilities as I heard everything is now very expensive. The nightclubs were charging way too much and getting very greedy.
Everyone knows that. Go to Yihao and see for yourself.
The room size is good, well decorated and the bathroom had both a bath and a large walk in shower. The lobby bar and waiting area was relazing.
It is conveninet go travel from Hong Kong. You can take a coach fromn Shenzhen or some specific locations in HK, scuh as Mongkok and Shatin.
It is rather comfortable.
Guangzhou is a good place for buyers to come and there are lots of nice places to eat just enjoy your work here and eat lots of nice food
dong guan we all know is a place for night life. local food and enjoy the massage spa. its good to go for a few days and have some fun.
eat all the nice and delicious food in town. treat yourself like a king for a few days, dong guan is the place.
Excellent for shopping. Hotel rates are reasonable. Police's presence gives a sense of security. Need more English signages.
actually there arent many places for sightseeing, it is overall good to relax a day or two with massage, bars and KTVs.
I do not have good impression about Dongguang as the city do not seems to be safe so I only go out with local company.
I am here due to the well-know exhibition held in Dongguan. They need to enhance the urban quality & safety standard.
Dongguan is a city which is full of nightlife. From night club to massage palour, u can get all of them easily here.
There were also a theme park nearby to the town. This is the only place where u can find roller coaster ride, temple visit, kids entertainment and more. Food shouldn't be a issue for foreigner as it is based on Cantonese style of cooking. There are also fast food like KFC and Macdonals around. The drawback which i can only found in this city is the cab driver tend to keep the change as tips. Best way is to pay them the correct amount.
a place for business and leisure. not too safe overall as compared to guangzhou. taxi driver refuses to go by meter.
its hard to travel alone if you cant speak mandarin.
Whatever happens in Dongguan, stays in Dongguan. Bargain for everything and never let anyone take advantage of you.
It used to be the mistress township which has transform into a nightlife town however it a matter of chicken & egg.
Dongguan is fast growing town in the last 20 years. Good side is economic but down side is air/water pollution.
Clean river and Land are very important to human being. Hope Dongguan can be improved in clean for all aspects.
Dong Guan is full of hotels and restaurant, either for personal or business travel to this city is no problem.
it is enjoyable for staying in this city. During the nightlife is wonderful.... full of pub, KTV and massage. And some of the mini bars and theme bar are great to visit
Spa here is quite professional but with a very reasonable price. So highly recommended. Others are just so-so
CP is the region nearest to the train station from HK Going to Humen town will need about 1hr by car/ taxi
A lot of people, a prosperous city, have to be very careful to prevent from being con by the local there.
Dong Guan is party city. From Night clubs to Spas, it is all about relaxation, especially for the guys.
The prices are also cheapest across all of China. Of course if you are comparing apple to apple. Over here it is only 50% or less compared to Shanghai prices.
