1. Central urban areas (Guancheng, Wanjiang, Nancheng, Dongcheng)
The four central urban areas are the cultural, political and economic center of Dongguan. With a long history and profound cultural heritage, most universities in the city are located in Guancheng District; Wanjiang District is one of the birthplaces of Cantonese Opera; Dongguan Municipal Party Committee, Municipal Government and other government agencies are located in Nancheng District; Wanda Plaza, World Expo Plaza and other large shopping centers are located in Dongcheng District.
If you choose to live in the central city, you can eat the most authentic lychee wood-roasted goose, listen to an old man in the teahouse sing Cantonese opera, and feel the livilihood of the old city. Compared with the high rent in Guancheng District, the rent in Wanjiang and Dongcheng might be more affordable.
Metro Line 2 goes through the central city from northeast to southwest, and goes directly to Humen Town. Metro Line 1 is already under construction (expected to open in 2024). When the entire line is completed, it will be connected to the Guangzhou-Shenzhen network.

2. Binhaiwan New Area (Humen Town, Chang'an Town, Shatian Town, Houjie Town)
The Binhaiwan New Area has towns and streets like Humen and Chang'an, which are economically comparable to cities. At the same time, there are many manufacturing factories attracting a large number of young people who come to work.
Metro Line 2 runs through the two towns of Humen and Chang'an from north to south.Line 3 will also start from Chang'an Town and connect to Songshan Lake High-tech Zone from the southwest to the northeast. If you work in nearby factories you might consider living along the subway line. But the rent here is also a bit higher.
In addition, the Guangzhou-Dongguan-Shenzhen Intercity and Dongguan-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Expressway also pass through Humen and Chang'an towns, and commuting between these areas is therefore very convenient.
