Though humans have lived in the area for thousands of years, Dongguan only became a city in 1985. Located in the Pearl River Delta, this industrial town played an important part in recent history, specifically as a base for guerrilla resistance of Japanese forces in World War II. Today, Dongguan is known for its exports and for having one of the world's largest shopping malls. During your trip to Dongguan you can combine shopping and spa treatments with lessons on the local history, including the city's involvement in the Opium War.
