Introduction of Adelaide

Adelaide is the capital, commercial and cultural center of (South Australia), South Australia. It is the largest city in South Australia and the fifth largest city in Australia. It has a population of more than 1.2 million and is one of the most livable cities in the world. Adelaide is a port city along the Indian Ocean, located on the Adelaide Plain, north of (Fleurieu Peninsula), St. Vincent Bay, 9.6km east of (Saint Vincent). It is a slender city with a width of about 20 km from the seaside to the hills, about 90 km long, the east hills undulating, the west beaches stretching, the city planning is good, the travel is convenient, and it is in all directions.

Adelaide was named after William Adelaide (Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen), which was built in 1836 and was planned to be the only state in Australia that was freely colonized in Australia. Colonel William Wright was one of the builders of Adelaide, who designed the city and built it near the River Torrens. Wright was influenced by William Payne and the idyllic urban movement. The city was designed in a checkerboard pattern. There were spacious streets and public squares between the buildings. The city was surrounded by parks. Adelaide is known for its religious freedom, political enlightenment and civil liberties until Adelaide was still a Puritan city in the 1970s. A series of reforms in the 1970s restored the culture of the past.

Today's Adelaide is famous for its many festivals, wine, art and sports competitions, with many government and financial institutions and the largest central business district in South Australia. Adelaide has three Australian universities, Adelaide University, (The University of Adelaide), South Australia University (University of South Australia) and Flinders University (Flinders University).

Adelaide is rich in tourism resources, with rolling hills in the east and beaches in the west; the city is small, surrounded by green trees, full of architectural monuments, wide streets, gardens, cafes and restaurants; the suburbs are elegant and pleasant, clean and peaceful. There is no prosperity and hustle and bustle in Sydney and Melbourne, and there are few problems such as traffic jams and urban pollution. For a hundred years, the Adelaide maintained a simple tradition of life, historic colonial bars, renovated churches and modern facilities, and Victorian and Edwardian buildings were the highlights of the city. Adelaide and his South Australia were named by Lonely Planet (Lonely Planet) at the end of 2016 as global must-see attractions in 2017, and were the only selected areas in Australia at the end of 2016.

As of July 2019, Adelaide and China have only two cities, Hong Kong and Guangzhou, with direct flights, while other cities need to transfer flights.
