Introduction to Denglongsha Water Town (灯笼沙水乡)

Denglongsha Water Town (also named Lanterns Sand Area) is situated in Zhuhai western region, covering an area of 14.7 square kilometers with a population of 9,800 people. The fishermen live here for generations in a way of fish catching, known as "Danjia Family".With the rapid development of fisheries, fishermen have been arranged to settle down around the areas of the Pearl River Delta since the twentieth century.

Denglongsha Water Town has a long history. Doumen Marriage-on-the-water customs were formed in the early Qing Dynasty, and made a great progress during the reign of Tongzhi Emperor in the Qing Dynasty. Most residents there are from Xinhui, Panyu, Zhongshan and other places of Guangdong province. Singing songs and having wedding ceremony on the water are the most traditional customs for the locals there. During the traditional festivals, locals build singing competition stage under the Kapok trees and place two tables to celebrate. It is also great to enjoy local folk performances there, making it a fabulous attraction for visitors coming to Zhuhai.
