The Education Bureau (EDB) organises “Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Bay Area Exploration Series: A One-day Exploration of Zhongshan” (the Programme). The Programme aims at providing life-wide learning experiences for students to understand the various aspects of development in Zhongshan, including innovative technology, economic development, architectural art, history and culture, through visits to enterprises, manufacturing bases, museums and Zhan’s Garden.
