Zhangmutou is a town under the direct jurisdiction of the prefecture-level city of Dongguan in Guangdong province, China.

Overview[edit]

It is named for the abundant camphor trees (Chinese: 樟木; pinyin: zhāngmù) which existed at one time. It has many flats built and tailored toward expats. It is also a favorite retirement destination and attracts Hong Kong residents as the price is much lower than nearby Hong Kong. The predominant spoken languages are Hakka, Mandarin and Cantonese.
