Pre-Tour – Stay overnight in Nanning

Day 1 – Stay overnight in Mingshi
Begin the day by visiting the Guangxi Museum of Nationalities Museum, which is home to a number of exhibits showcasing the rich ethnic minority cultures throughout Guangxi Province.

After exploring the exhibits of the Museum of Nationalities, visitors will then be transferred to Qingxiu Mountain.

​Within Nanning City,  Qingxiu Mountain is considered to be the most popular and best attraction – it’s a large park within the city featuring sculptures, temples, gardens, lakes and more for visitors to enjoy. ​

Following your visit to Qingxiu Mountain, depart Nanning and travel towards Daxin. In the late afternoon, you’ll arrive into Mingshi at your hotel (TBA). After checking into your Mingshi Hotel, enjoy the rest of your evening at leisure.

Day 2 – Stay overnight in Jingxi

In the morning, depart Mingshi to the famous Detian Waterfalls.  By staying overnight in Mingshi (and departing to the waterfalls earlier), the majority of the day visitors from Nanning won’t be at the waterfalls during your visit, allowing a more peaceful experience.

​The Detian Waterfalls are famous waterfalls straddling the border of China and Vietnam and Detian is the fourth largest waterfall in the world along a national border.

During the afternoon, depart Detian and travel to the Tongling Grand Canyon. This particular canyon is surrounded by lush scenery and with one of the largest waterfalls in China. It requires some walking to get down to the base of the canyon, explore the waterfalls and unique scenery. ​Thereafter, you’ll be transferred directly to Jingxi where you have the option to spend the late afternoon at leisure in Jingxi or alternatively, visit the nearby Quyang Lake, which is a large reservoir featuring a beautiful sunset. Spend the evening at leisure in your hotel in Jingxi.

Day 3 – Stay overnight in Nanning/END OF TOUR
After checking out from your Jingxi Hotel, you’ll travel to the nearby Equan Scenic Area. This particular attraction features a spring surrounded by beautiful gardens and mountains and is a popular stopover between Jingxi and Mingshi.

Following the visit to Equan Scenic Area, depart from Jingxi and travel back towards the Mingshi Scenic Area. From Jingxi to Mingshi, it takes approximately 2 x hours. Mingshi Scenic Area is a scenic spot located in Daxin (near Detian Waterfalls), which is famous for it’s incredible landscape. 

Mingshi is known as a ‘small Guilin’ and visitors have the option to explore the Mingshi Scenic Area either via bicycle, walking or rafting. In the afternoon, continue the journey back to Nanning.

On the way, to break up the journey (optional), stopover at the small city of Chongzuo and visit it’s Chongzuo Leaning Pagoda

​Chongzuo is surrounded by karst scenery, rivers and sugar cane fields. Thereafter, you’ll be transferred back to your hotel in Nanning to conclude the tour.
