Topography of the Location

The Zuhai region is strategically located within the Asian sphere. In close proximity are cities like Macao and Hong-Kong, and within a 3,000 km radius are all of the East-Asian capitals including Tokyo, Beijing, and Singapore. Since Zuhai is situated in the middle of East-Asia, it has the potential to be the political and cultural center of the region. It is said that over 30,000,000 overseas Chinese merchants (ki-jia) live within 3,000 km of Zuhai. With such an active population, the area has enormous potential to become a hub of international exchange. The area surrounded by Hong-Kong, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, (...), (...), Macao and Zuhai is known as the Zu Jiang Kou Delta. Recently, three prefectures Guangdong, Fujian, and Hainan have come to be called the Southern Chinese Economical Block, but since ancient times, the Zu Jiang Kou Delta has been the largest base of economical exchange in Southern China because of its location. In 1995, the population of the Delta region was a reported 40,000,000, and it is estimated that it will increase 1.5 fold by the year 2010.
The transportation infrastructure includes a new highway to the north and a railroad to Guangzhou, which will be constructed in the near future and facilitate access to the north. In terms of international connections, the new Zuhai Airport is located approximately 15 km west of the city, and the new Macao International Airport has just been constructed about 10 km northeast.
On Hang-Qin Island is a mountain range with several high peaks including Nao-Bei-Shang (457m), Da-Au-Shan (168m), and Shi-Nan-Zhou (285m). The topography of these mountains provides the ground for applying the principles of Feng-shui in order to determine the axes and siting of Haishi.
