The Pearl River Delta (PRD), one of the most magnificent areas overlooking the South China Sea, is developing at a rapid pace. Hong Kong SAR, Macao SAR and China’s Guangdong Province are a part of this region and are considered a ‘megacity’, as it populates almost 35 percent of the country’s population.

In this edition of Issues & Trends the development of the PRD in Guangzhou, Hong Kong SAR and Macao SAR will be elaborated. The tourism development in this area will be shown through the international visitor arrivals and through internal efforts of the governments.
