Yuhu Scenic Area is located in the historic and cultural city of Gaozhou City. This spot mainly relies on the Shigu reservoir and Liangde reservoir.

The wide water surface can regulate the temperature of the surrounding area and acts like a natural oxygen bar; it's decorated with pillars, flowers, and sculptures of mythological figures and famous people. This scenic area combining natural and human landscapes is like Maoming's backyard. The comprehensive facilities, excellent service and abundant scenery make this a popular spot for school outings, meetings, traveling, and relaxing.
