Where is Nanning, China?

nanning

Nanning is close to scenic Guilin, with its world famous hillscape, northern and western Guangxi and its minority villages, and the border with Vietnam in the south.

I’ve been to Guilin before. One of the best tourist destinations in China.

hmm …

I visit Nanning very often. It is a wonderful city and very safe. I am surprised they are hosting as you do not find tourists there!

I moved to Nanning in February. Yes, there aren’t more tourists here but ASEAN meets here and large car shows at the exibition center. There is an arts college with 10,000 students from all over. The city is thriving with luxury cars and hotels and major shopping malls. It is a gateway city to SE Asia. High speed rail next year will open many destinations and Nanning will be a hub as it is centrally located and the weather, although wet sometimes, is nice. Known as the green city and now with a new subway system look for Nanning to attract more people from inside and outside China.

How easy is it to get around for those who don’t speak Chinese?

Not all that easy.

Best book all transportation and accommodation in advance.
