This ''City with A Hundred Islands'' is of course most famous for the water sports it offers. Dreamy Water City and the Pearl Land are two water-parks where an entire day can be spent swimming and riding rapids, and the city abounds with opportunities for surfing, diving and sailing. Visitors who prefer a gentler way to experience the waters can take a ferry across to the various islands of Zhuhai, or watch the waves lap against jagged rocks and sandy beaches on Hengqin. Night cruises around the island set off daily from Jiuzhou Port at 6.30pm and 8:30pm lasting two hours.
Of course, water sports aren't the only way to keep active in Zhuhai. Tennis, bowling and go-carting are all popular pastimes on the islands, as is golf now that two large golf courses have opened up in with city: the Zhuhai Golf Club on Tangjiawan and the Zhuhai Golden Gulf Golf Club in Jinwan Avenue. Petrol-heads will want to head out to the Zhuhai International Circuit (the home of motor-racing teams from Hong Kong and Macau), which has hosted the FIA GT Championship and A1GP
After a long day of water sports and golf, visitors may be pleased to learn that Zhuhai is also home to the Yuwenquan Hot Spring Resort, where visitors can enjoy saunas and massage as well as a dip in the natural hot springs.
Nightlife in Zhuhai is well covered, and most needs are catered for. Bar Street (jiuba jie) on Gongbei is unsurprisingly the first stop on many nights out particularly for ex-pats, who enjoy the live music and familiar atmosphere. The drinks aren't cheap though: up to RMB30 for a beer. The nightlife stretches far beyond bars: cinemas, KTVs, theaters and teahouses are well represented in Zhuhai. On Haiquanwan, the Dream Theater has Russian, Ukrainian, Mongolian and Chinese performances every night and the Julong Song and Dance Theater will provide a similarly eclectic mix of shows.
