Nanning -- City of Flowers and Fruit
Nanning, the capital of the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, is located in the south of the region on the Yongjaing River and the Xiangtan-Guilin Railway. With ceiba, palm, jackfruit, and mango trees growing all the year round and fresh fruits and flowers abundant from spring to winter, the city is known as the city of flowers and fruit. As an urban planting programme is launched almost every year, the city streets are lined with trees and its houses surrounded by flowers and greenery. It is a city of foliage and subtropical color.

Nanning is also a developing industrial city with light industry as the mainstay. It produces canned foods and handicraft articles, particularly a type of silk called Zhuang brocade, which, like the region itself, is named after the ethnic group that inhabit.

Yiling Cave

Lying twenty kilometers northwest of Nanning, this cave is forty-five meters deep and covers an area of 24,000 square meters. The 1,100-meter trip through the cave includes a walk through the "passage in the air," which is three hundred meters long and has three turns and three rises and falls. Standing by the railing, the visitor gets a fantastic view of the cave's colorfully lit stalactites, stalagmites, stone pillars, and other strange formations.

Spirit Water Lake (Lingshui)

Spirit Water Lake, forty-six kilometers north of Nanning, occupies an area of five thousand square meters and is two to three meters deep. Springs emerging from stone cracks at the bottom of the lake form jets of water droplets, like strings of pearls, above the surface. The lake can be used for swimming all year long because the temperature of its clear green water remains at about 23ºC (73.4ºF) despite the season. Visitors to Spirit Water Lake can also enjoy the season.

Visitors to Spirit Water Lake can also enjoy the nearby Crab Hill (PANGXIESHAN), Wolf's Tooth Pass (Langyakou), and Nine-Layer Cliff (Jiucengpi).

South Lake Park (Nanhugongyuan)

Charming South Lake Park in downtown Nanning embraces a wide lake and green-covered hills. The fish restaurant in the park is well worth a visit.

Other attractions such as the zoo and the Dawangtan reservoir at the outskirts of the city are also worth a sightseeing trip.
