Nanning Travel Guide

Nanning MapNanning, 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.

Convenient transportation systems make the city easily accessible. Nanning Wuxu Airport (NNG), Nanning Railway Station and East Railway Station serve as hubs for other cities in China. Five main bus stations take people to other provincial counties and cities. Public buses, rail transit and taxies are plentiful and inexpensive.

Being a modern city, Nanning's accommodation and shopping are diverse and well developed for visitors. Hotels and hostels of different standards can meet various needs. In the city's commercial center, supermarkets, department stores, specialty commodity streets, bookstores and other retail markets offer a variety of merchandise. When night falls, colorful street lamps lit the city. Under the lights, the locals become active, visiting nightclubs, gyms, bars, and coffee houses. People of all ages can be seen walking or relaxing in the city's many squares or along the river.

Round-trip to Nanning on 2 January 2019
Is it advisable to embark on a short round-trip to Nanning, arriving in and departing from the city on the same day for flight reviews without staying in a China hotel? Does China customs and immigration allow such form of travel?

Is the weather in the city in January chilly or rainy or snowy?

The weather in this city in January is chilly and would rain sometimes. The China Customs and immigration allows this kind of trip only if you have Chinese visa. So don't worry about this.

This is a city of Guangxi Province and there is an airport in this city - Wuxu International Airport. There is not direct plane from your country to the Wuxu Airport and you can make a transfer at Guangzhou Baiyun Airport.
