With the arrival of autumn, Zhongshan launches an autumn tourism route - Modern Commercial Port Cultural Heritage Tour Route - based around the provincial intangible cultural heritage program Huangpu Cured Meat. The route connects Huangpu Park, the Huangpu Ancient Wharf Site, the Huangpu Marine Erosion Site, Huangpu Cured Meat (a provincial ICH program), Shijun Village (a Guangdong Cultural Tourism Village), and the Wing Yip Cured Food Museum.

Huangpu Park, at the base of the Jianfeng Mountains in Huangpu Town, has beautiful natural scenery and a deep cultural atmosphere. It is an important part of the Huangpu Marine Erosion Site provincial geological park and a good place for people to enjoy leisure time, entertainment and fitness.

The Huangpu Ancient Wharf Site and stone stairway include an ancient wharf from the Song Dynasty and a stone stairway from the Ming Dynasty. The wharf is located next to No.17, Lane 24, Xingdongshang Street of Aoshan Village in Huangpu Town, also next to the Beiji Temple in Aoshan Village. It was built in the Song Dynasty, and the existing stairway was rebuilt in the Ming Dynasty.

The Huangpu Marine Erosion Site is located at the foot of Shiling Mountain of the Jianfeng Mountains in the west of Huangpu Town, covering an area of 2,500 mu. It is a large-scale marine erosion site as well as one of the most well-preserved marine erosion sites in Guangdong.

Shijun Village is a Guangdong Cultural Tourism Village and the only old revolutionary base area village in Huangpu Town. In 2006, the village started to hold a revolutionary history exhibition and then became Zhongshan's first Party history education base in rural areas.

It is a traditional custom in Huangpu Town to make cured meat in autumn. In 2009, the traditional production process of Huangpu Cured Meat was included in the Guangdong Provincial Intangible Cultural Heritage List. The Wing Yip Cured Food Museum has become an interactive classroom for displaying the Chinese cured sausage culture.
