Gaozhou is a county-level city of Maoming City, southwestern Guangdong province of Southern China. It had a population of 1,288,665 as of 2010 census and a total area of 3270.8 km². The locals speak a variation of the Gaozhou dialect. It is best known for being the ancestral home of Leo Ku.AdministrationAdministratively, Gaozhou City is under the jurisdiction of Maoming. It is a historically important city in Guangdong. It was set up as a city in 1993. Gaozhou consists of five districts (Panzhou, Shanmei, Baoguang, Shizailing, and Jinshan) and another 23 towns.GeographyGaozhou City is located 420 km away from Shenzhen and Guangzhou, 450 km away from Hong Kong.Gaozhou is a small town located around 400 kilometres away from Guangzhou, China and can be reached by car in four to five hours. Gaozhou is a small town and part of the Maoming prefecture. It stands as an important centre for education and culture for the people of the countryside around the town.Life in Gaozhou is idyllic, with the main buzz of activity emanating from the several school campuses housing thousands of students from the areas surrounding this town. While the city itself is quite dull and unattractive, the countryside around Gaozhou boasts of lush green fields, scenic hills blanketed with lychee and longan orchards and visions of farmers ploughing their fields, all adding up to an ideal rural getaway. Life here is different from big cities like Guangzhou in the sense that the lives of people here revolve around a good family life, frequent socialising, an emphasis on education and sports. For entertainment, people here frequent KTV bars, or drive up to Maoming, a bigger town located 60 kilometres from here. Though people here like socialising over food, there are no good restaurants save for a "dhaba" style thatched roof restaurant on the outskirts of the town.
