Kaiping city centre is located on the Tanjiang River, 140 kilometres (87 mi) away from Guangzhou, on the edge of the county Kaiping west of the Pearl River Delta. Kaiping consists of broken terrain, mostly either rocky or swampy, with only a third of the land arable. The county is shaped like a giant question mark (see map, in pink) and includes rural areas as well as three port cities: Changsha, Xinchang, and Dihai.
During the Northern Song dynasty, Kaiping was under the administration of Xin'an county (信安縣） Under the Qing (1649), Kaiping County made up part of the commandery of Zhaoqing. It was promoted to county-level city status in 1993.
