City of Berkeley



In 2018, Guiyang established friendly cooperation with Berkeley.

The City of Berkeley is situated at western California towards the east shore of San Francisco Bay. 20 kilometers from Los Angeles, Berkeley features cool summer Mediterranean climate, with cool, dry summers and mild, rainy winters.

Founded in 1909, Berkeley covers an area of around 46 square kilometers with a population of more than 120,000. It was a pastureland during the gold rush at the beginning of 1850. In 1864, University of California moved here and now the city, with a population of 120,000, has become a famed college town similar to Oxford and Cambridge. Exuding cultural richness, Berkeley is also a city of exclusive residential estates. Besides science and technology, culture and education, Berkeley has also developed machinery manufacturing, chemistry, food processing (concentrated food) and other industries.
