The conference site is located in Zhongshan, at the geometric center of the Guangdong-Hong Kong- Macao Greater Bay Area in China. It 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. Until 1925, Zhongshan was generally known as Xiangshan or Heung-san (Siangshan), in reference to the many flowers that grew in the mountains nearby. The city was renamed in honor of Dr. Sun Yat-sen.
Thousands of years ago, much of the Zhongshan area lay within the Pearl River estuary, with only scattered islands above the surface. Gradually from south to north, the area filled in with alluvial silt and became dry land. The northern parts of today's Zhongshan did not fill in until the time of the Ming Dynasty. Zhongshan is a prefecture-level city of the Guangdong province. An uncommon administrative feature is that it has no county-level division, but the municipal government does group the 24 township-level divisions into five district areas. The city government directly administers six Subdistricts and 18 towns.
Tourism, recreation and leisure
▶Museum of Dr. Sun Yat-sen
The Museum of Dr. Sun Yat-sen was established in November 1956. It includes the Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall and the Former Residence. The Former Residence of Sun Yat-sen is a two-storey brick and wood structure that combines Chinese and Western styles. There is a “Former Residence of Sun Yat-sen” woodcut plaque written by Sun’s wife Soong Ching-ling on the south side of the main entrance.
Zhongshan Town is a theme cultural tourism attraction that integrates tourism, sightseeing and film production. There are five major sections in Zhongshan Town: the Chinese, Japanese, British, and American Scenic Areas, plus the Exhibition Hall Area. All in all, they contain sixty-three different attractions. More than ten performances are scheduled each day. The Town integrates content from Dr. Sun’s revolutionary sites in China and around the world, and reflects the process of China’s democratic revolution led by Dr. Sun. It also shows the regional culture represented by Zhongshan City, Guangdong Province.
In Cuiheng Village, the private houses adjacent to the Former Residence of Sun Yat-sen are restored to imitate the houses of the late Qing Dynasty (1644 - 1911 AD). It vividly reproduces the living conditions of all classes of society in Cuiheng Village, and helps visitors understand more deeply the childhood environment of Sun. It also lets visitors appreciate some of the folk customs of the Pearl River Delta region.
