As of early 2008, one visitor described the baby rooms at the Jiangcheng District orphanage as follows:
"I saw two large baby rooms. In the one room I walked around there were four bays of eight attached cribs with several other cribs along the walls. The total was exactly 40 cribs. This seemed to be the non-special needs older children room. The room I did not enter seemed to be smaller children and a couple of special needs children. I never saw a third room where children were kept. The room I didn't enter was directly below the older children's room so I believe it was the same dimensions.
"There were no children over 2 years old at Jiangcheng. When I asked what happened when the children turned 2 I was told the goal was to have all the children from Jiangcheng adopted by age 2. The director said 90% would be adopted internationally and 10% would be adopted domestically."
Prominent crops in the area include rice, sugar cane, and tea oil. Peacock rock is a dark green rock made into jewelry. This rock is found only in this area.
Average temperature is 23 degrees Celsius (January 14 degrees, July 28 degrees). Yangjiang is famous for its sword and cutlery industry mad eof high-quality stainless steel. Yangjiang is also the largest production area for fruit jelly and pudding in Southeast Asia. It is designated as the "National Hometown of Kites."
Tourist destinations include Hailing Island's Dajiaowan Bay, a 4-A resort area. There are also many temples and lakes in and around Yangjiang City.
