Since you have eight days, you will have enough time to cover the three cities. You may fly to Hong Kong first. Then, you can take a train to Guangzhou from Hung Hom Railway Station (about 2 hours). After sightseeing, you can take a bullet train to NN.

The must-see attractions in Hong Kong are Disneyland Resort, Big Buddha, Ocean Park, Victoria Peak, Causeway Bay, Stanley Market, Aberdeen, etc.

In Guangzhou, you may go to see Canton Tower, Pearl River, Haizhu Square, Beijing Road Pedestrian Street, and Baiyun Mountain.

When you are in NN, you may visit Qingxiu Moutain, Yangmei Ancient Town, Detian Waterfalls, and Nanhu Lake Park.

You may spend three days at Hong Kong, two days at Guangzhou, and three days at NN. May you have a wonderful trip! :)

How do I plan my stay in Nanning from 21.12.13-30.12.13.
I would like to visit near by places e.g. Youngshuo/Guilin. Thanks

I think besides Guilin and Yangshuo, Longsheng Terrace is worth seeing and for these three places, it is suggested to spend four to five days.
Then you can choose to go to Beihai for about two days. Then you can spend about one to two days in NN city.

There is no direct flight from London to Guangxi. There is direct flight from Heathrow airport to Guangzhou. You can take the flight to Guangzhou and then take trains or buses to go to your destination in Guangxi.
