Zhongshan (Chinese: 中山) is a prefecture-level city in the south of the Pearl River Delta in Guangdong province, China, with a population of over 3 million (2012). The city used to be called Shekki or Shiqi (石岐).

Zhongshan is one of a very few cities in China named after a person. It is named after Dr. Sun Yat-sen (1866–1925), who is known in Mandarin as Sun Zhongshan. Sun, the founding father of the Republic of China who is also regarded positively by the People's Republic, was born in Cuiheng village in Nanlang Township of what was then Xiangshan County. In 1925, the year after his death, Xiangshan was renamed Zhongshan in his honor.

  • City not well known, with just 14 million inhabitants (2016), offers all the services and technology, from air-conditioned buses and free WiFi, up to net of bicycle rent and most free attractions. Very clean, bright and very safe, even at late hours of the night. Very nice and recommended city. The tourist influx is not high, so you feel a real local atmosphere, the people are very kind, although most of them only speak Mandarin.
