Dongguan is an ancient city with a long history which can be traced back to more than 5000 years ago. It was in Humen, a town of Dongguan, that the event of Incineration of Opium took place, which opened a new chapter in china ˉs modern history. During the War of Resistance against Japan, Dongguan had been a base for the resistance forces in the East River Basin area, where thousands of Dongguan people fought bravely for and devoted their lives to the nation ˉs independence and prosperity. Thanks to its long history and glorious revolutionary tradition, Dongguan has become a well-known historic and cultural city in south Guangdong.
