Places of Interests

Guangxi Province has been popularised by Guilin, which has been anciently termed as the most beautiful landscape and scenic place in the world. We made our way to Nanning, the capital of Guangxi via the bus from Zhuhai which was a 12hours ride. Besides Guilin, Guangxi province has some really historical but modern towns. The upper part of Guangxi, you will get to experience the cultures of the minority tribes of Zhuang, Miao and Yao. You will also get to see the most beautiful rice terraces in PingAn and Dazhai in Longsheng.

The highlights of Guangxi is definately the scenic karst mountains along the Li Jiang River (either in Guilin or Yangshuo) and spectacular Longi Titian a.k.a Dragon's Backbone Rice Terrraces (either PingAn or Dazhai in Longsheng)

Here are the places that we have covered in the Guangxi Region during our travels from 11th Sep 2007 to 23rd Sep 2007.
