For a complete return to nature, there is no shortage of options in Zhuhai: whether you are a fan of aquatic wildlife, agrotourism, or whether you’ve always wondered what it was like for the Mayan settlements living in the Amazon rain forest, there is something for everyone. These activities are suitable for all ages, whether you are living in Zhuhai or just passing through.
1) Nongkeqiguan Agrotourism Park
Nongkeqiguan offers a real insight into the entire world’s ecological system. There is a high-tech agricultural laboratory and 65 greenhouses that adhere to the highest organic standards producing exotic fruits, vegetables, flowers – in total there are more than 100 different products of these three varieties. For example, Taiwanese bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, Japanese small cucumbers and large American pumpkins.
The area is already famous within Hong Kong, Macau and the Pearl Delta for revolutionizing agriculture with new and ground-breaking technological foundations – while at the same time providing excellent opportunities to cooperate with the outside world.
If you want to see the growing of any specific vegetables or fruits, please enquire in advance, especially as winter nears. The peak times for visitors are the Spring Festival, and August, during which times it may be busy.
