Chashan (Chinese: 茶山; pinyin: cháshān) is a town in the prefecture-level city of Dongguan, Guangdong Province, southern China. It is located 11.5 kilometres (7.1 mi) northeast of the city centre.

Transport[edit]

Though the Kowloon Canton Railway runs through Chashan, it is not a convenient way to travel from Guangzhou (Canton), Shenzhen or Kowloon in Hong Kong to Chashan due to the time required. Travel by bus is the best way to reach Chashan, which is well connected to bus routes.

Notable fruit[edit]

Chashan is noted for its litchi fruit (Simplified Chinese:荔枝) which comes from the litchi chinensis, a Chinese tree that bears bright red fruits, each of with a single large seed. Litchi taste best between May and June.
