Named as the south gate of the country, Nanning East Railway Station was constructed in a very distinctive Guangxi style. Its foundation is in a gallery bridge model and the main structure reflects veranda features. On both sides of the entrance, there are 12 huge upright columns, which stand for the 12 nationalities including Zhuang, Han, Miao, and others that live in the Autonomous Region. The terminal building itself is also energy saving and environmentally protected. Once the relevant facilities are fully equipped, it will become a generating plant as well.
The station consists of the underground floor (-1F), the ground floor (1F) and the elevated floor (2F), as well as the south and north squares.
