Nanning, the capital city of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, is the political, economic and cultural center of the region. It has the most prosperous economy in Southwest China, supplying an abundance of agricultural products to the whole Guangxi. Bordering Vietnam, this city is neighbor to Guangzhou, close to Hong Kong and Macau, and faces Southeast Asia. This advantageous location makes the city a commercial and communication center, opening China to Southeast Asia.
Pleasant climate endows Nanning with evergreen trees and fragrant flowers all year round, hence the name 'Green City.' In such a beautiful land, more than 30 ethnic minority groups have been living harmoniously for 1,680 years. Zhuang is the largest minority group of China. Over 90% of them live in Guangxi. Their history and ethnic culture add charm to the city.
Nanning welcomes visitors from all over the world. Its beautiful subtropical scenery and exotic ethnic minority culture have been attracting millions of tourists for years.
As the linking point of the tour route from Guilin to Beihai, Nanning has a lot of attractions to offer: grand Detian Waterfall, beautiful Mt. Qingxiu and Mt. Daming, quiet Yangmei Ancient Town, mysterious Huashan Mural as well as scattered parks and gardens. Visitors will be enchanted and may want to spend more time in the city. Delicious local foods such as various porridges and rice noodles as well as Suanye (fermented fruits and vegetables) cannot be enjoyed anywhere else in China.
The Detian Waterfall Scenic Area lies in Daxin, Chongzuo, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, around 145 kilometers (90 miles) from the downtown area of Nanning and neighboring Vietnam. In this scenic area, there are more than 40 tourist attractions. Among those, the most notable one is the Ban Gioc-Detian Falls.
This waterfall crosses the boundary between China and Vietnam and joins with the Ban Gioc Waterfall in Vietnam. With the good name of the World's Second Largest Transnational Waterfall, it goes through three terraces as it flows down from on high. Maybe, you have seen the famous Niagara Falls and the grandness makes a very deep impression on you. Similarly, the vigorous Detian Waterfall gives you a thrilling and majestic sensation.
Nanhu Lake Park
Nanhu Lake Park is located in the southeast of Nanning City and features aquatic sceneries and subtropical gardening landscapes. It covers an area of 1.3 square kilometers (about 0.5 square miles) and a quarter of the whole park is covered by the lake.
The Qingxiu mountain range is the 'green lung' of Nanning City. Located 5 kilometers (about 3.1 miles) southeast of the suburbs of the city and bordering the Yongjiang River, the mountain range is renowned for its beauty and the clear waters which run through it. It is no wonder they are counted as one of the Eight Wonderful Sceneries of ancient Nanning. The undulating chains of mountains, verdant trees, liquid springs and historic sites together make this mountain a good place to meet the charm of antique taste and tranquility.
