An overall view of Jiuzhou Port

Jiuzhou Port (Chinese: 九洲港pinyin: jiǔ zhōu gǎng) is a port in the city of Zhuhai, on the west side of the Pearl River estuary in Chinese province of Guangdong. It includes a container terminal and a terminal for high-speed ferries connecting Zhuhai with Hong Kong and Shenzhen. It is also developing into a transport hub with regular coach services connecting the port with various cities west of the Pearl River such as Jiangmen and Shunde.

History and Geography

Passengers buying ferry tickets

Zhuhai International Container Terminals (Jiuzhou), ZICT(J), located in the city of Zhuhai on the western bank of the Pearl River Delta (PRD) in the Guangdong Province, adjacent to Macau and 36 nautical miles (67 km) from Hong Kong, commenced operations in 1993. Providing container and general cargo handling services, ZICT(J) operates five multi-purpose berths.

On 10 July 2007, a new ferry service between Jiuzhou port and Skypier in Hong Kong International Airport began. The new service will have two roundtrip sailings per day and can carry 1,300 passengers. The ferries will depart Jiuzhou at 9.30am and 3.30pm and leave the airport at 11.15am and 5pm everyday. The frequency of the 50-minute service will grow to three roundtrip sailings each day by August and four each day by January 2008.[1]

In Spring 2009 the refurbishment of the port had been completed with new stores and facilities for passengers. Numerous gift shops and Fast food chains now have restaurants inside to serve passengers. A light white marble floor and walls brighten up the once dark waiting area. The toilets are now moved to the 1st floor and are clean. Tickets are purchased in the ground floor lobby and the boats are boarded via the first floor.

Notes for Non-Chinese traveling through Jiuzhou Port

A tour bus in Jiuzhou Port. Note that the text on the bus is to be read from the front of the bus to the rear (on either side)

Although you will only pass from a Special Administrative Region (S.A.R.) into mainland China (when coming from Macau or Hong Kong), the procedure is the same as if you were crossing from one country into another. You will need to complete an arrivals / departure card (available in the departure / arrivals hall) so remember to allow extra time for this.

When you first arrive at the port, turn right as you exit and walk alongside the covered walkway. This is the start of the taxi-rank and much more sensible travel than with the unlicensed drivers who might approach you as you first exit the building.

Forward Travel from JiuZhou Port

JiuZhou Port is connected by a number of other on-going transport options.

As mentioned in 'Notes for Non-Chinese traveling through Jiuzhou Port', taxis are readily available. After a busy ferry has come in, it might be necessary to queue and wait for taxis to return. To the right of the port on the sea wall-lined pavement is a bus stop for buses headed north. The number 99 directly passes the famous "Fisher Girl" statue (symbol of Zhuhai), and offers a spectacular view of the surrounding islands.

Opposite the port is a larger bus terminus where a number of buses run regular services. From here the number 3 re-starts its route and heads North past Zhongshan University and Beijing Normal University, Zhuhai Campus, all the way up to Jin Ding. Many other bus routes lead down into the bustling Gongbei (Chinese: 拱北pinyin: Gǒngběi) section of Zhuhai, where the China / Macau Border Crossing is located.
