Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region

Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region

Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region lies in southwest China, close to Guangdong province and bordering Vietnam. It is home to 11 minority groups, including Zhuang, Yao, Miao and Dong, of which the Zhuang account for one third of the province’s total population. The region is bisected by the Tropic of Cancer and has a sub-tropical monsoon humid climate, which makes it accessible year round.

Guangxi’s location and ethnic diversity make it an appealing travel destination in which you can enjoy remarkable natural scenery such as the legendary Guilin, indulge in coastal pleasures at Beihai Silver Beach, explore the sights of the Sino-Vietnam border area (such as Detian Waterfall) and discover the colourful customs of local ethnic minorities.

Lijiang River
A cruise along the Lijiang River from Guilin to Yangshuo is like taking a journey through a Chinese landscape painting. The karst limestone scenery of hills, cones and cylinders has been inspiring artists and poets since ancient times, and has even been depicted on China’s currency.

Detian Transnational Waterfall
Detian Transnational Waterfall straddles the border of China and Vietnam, and is formed from streams of different heights and sizes falling down through the forest in three steps. Highly regarded as one of the country’s most beautiful waterfalls, Detian offers a different scene during each of the four seasons, as the ancient tall trees, grasses and flowers surrounding it change.

The area that runs through Liuzhou, Rongshui, Sanjiang and Longsheng is known as the ‘corridor of folklore in South China’, as here you can meet many of Guangxi’s minorities and experience their unique clothing, cultures and art.
