Sea and adjoins Macao

and Hong Kong. It comprises a total area of 1,387.02 square meters (14,929.8 sq ft).[verification needed] Geologists have shown that Xinhui originated as a shallow bay at the mouth of the Pearl River about 5000 years ago, with its southeastern portion consisting of a chain of islands. The movement of the Tan and West Rivers eventually formed a delta that became the present alluvial plain over the course of the last nine hundred years. History[edit] Most of the present area of the Xinhui district formed during the historical period from silt deposited by the Tan and West Rivers. Some Neolithic

artifacts, however, have been found in the district's territory over the last ten years,[when?] including shell mounds and pottery shards. The former Gugang Prefecture was located in the area.[citation needed] Xinhui County administered the area of Jiangmen
