Jiangmen 江門

廣東 江門
Jiangmen, Guangdong, China
view map

This prefecture-level city started as an inland port where the Jiangmen River flows into Xijiang (西江 West River), a tributary of the Pearl River. It provided access to the four counties (四邑 Sze Yup) of Taishan (台山), Kaiping (開平), Enping (恩平), and Xinhui (新會). Their family of dialects, closely related to Cantonese, is still widely spoken in oversea Chinese communities.
This view of its Pengjiang (蓬江) District was shot on a bridge of the G94 Pearl River Delta Ring Expressway (珠三角環線高速公路).
