    Discover the Greater Bay Area

    Connecting you to endless experiences

    What is the Greater Bay Area?

    The Greater Bay Area, also known as the GBA, is the world’s largest and fastest-growing bay area, connecting Hong Kong, Macao and nine cities in Guangdong province: Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Foshan, Zhongshan, Dongguan, Huizhou, Jiangmen and Zhaoqing. Together, they form a megalopolis – an innovation hub with global influence. But the appeal of the GBA extends far beyond business.

    Go a little further and you’ll find incredible experiences around every corner. Wander the cobbled streets of Taipa village in Macao, where old-world charm meets modern allure. Feast on steaming baskets of dim sum in Guangzhou. Find tranquillity in the serene mountains, lakes and caves of Zhaoqing. All this, and more, is yours to explore. And we’re here to help you do just that.
