Qingxiu Mountain

Reviewed By yipjcs88 - Hong Kong, China

The Qingxiu Mountain is close to the Nanning city and is a large park with numerous tree species. I went there in a tour. The local guide helped us go through some main attractions in the park in the electric shuttle bus and we stopped here and there to take pictures. It is really a big place requiring several hours to go through. Best to go there on a cloudy or partly sunny day. Plenty of fresh air and not many people on a weekday. A lovely place to visit.

Nanning People's Park

Reviewed By KY28 - Singapore, Singapore

Visited it on a Saturday morning so it was crowded which made people watching interesting. There were many groups gathered at various locations throughout the park singing songs and Cantonese opera. Most groups had their own bands of traditional Chinese musical instruments.
There is also an area where its like an amusement park with rides and arcade games mainly for kids/children, even paddle boats catered for kids in an enclosed area of the lake.
Adults can also rent the paddle boats.

Nanning Zhongshan Snack Street

Reviewed By ChooWai - Singapore, Singapore

We stayed at Yong Jiang Hotel nearby while playing in an international Bridge tournament. We walked over here every night. Food here was affordable for visitors and locals. Stalls get repetitive with drinks, all kinds of snacks. Try the fried maggots, caterpillars and centipedes if u dare. My favorite is the cold soya bean drinks with fried dough油条, all made in the spot! There are two stalls but I preferred the one at the corner which waa freshly prepared. Cooked food are lined behind the snack stalls. U nees to order and pay first then stick your receipt on the numbered tacks at the kitchen window, then wait for your turn.

The Guangxi museum of Nationalities offers a representative show case of the various tribes of Guangxi province, their historical background, life style, traditions and ceremonies all in one roof.
It is also a quick way to learn so many things within 2 hours of serious study into the artifacts and descriptions prepared by the museum.

Jinhuacha Park

Reviewed By bookowl1000 - Foshan, China

I spent a very pleasant afternoon here, and did not spend any money at all. This is a place where people go to just chill out. You will see lots of local people sat relaxing, chatting, playing cards, families playing games or even dancing. There a couple of small man made lakes and unlike many Chinese parks, lots of grass. The many trees provide lots of shade on a hot day, and there are numerous benches spread around. This is a perfect place to go to have a picnic or chill out with as book, which is what I did. I spent a couple of hours sat in the shade next to the water, listening to the birds sing, while also watching butterflies flutter past. At one point I lay down on the bench and closed my eyes, only to have a park attendant come along and say 'no sleeping'.
There are different zones within the park, and one area includes play equipment for children as well as amusement rides and games.

This place is definitely the best time killer, especially with kids! You got dolphins jumping loops, elephants playing drums, monkeys yelling around, peacock showing tails, and penguins walking around in a big refrigerator..! If you don't like animals, the entrance ticket gets you to the play arcade for free, where you can ride roll coaster, tower jumping and stuff. There is also a water park inside. Sit down under the trees if you get tired.
This is my must-go every time I am back home. LOVE IT!!!

Guangxi University

Reviewed By Andrew_Alin - Greater Adelaide, Australia

To be honest, I've never really understood why chinese universities always rate so highly on TA - after all, there are hundreds of them scattered around the country, and for your average tourist, there is nothing to see or do betond walking around aimlessly ...
And the guangxi university is the same ... yes, the grounds are karge and well-maintained, but that's it.

Guangxi Medicinal Botanical Garden

Reviewed By rbrown406 - Tanjay, Philippines

This park is big but lacks good maintenance. There are a large number different plants and trees but most of the park is in fairly poor condition regarding maintenance. Compared to other free parks in Nanning it is not worth it unless you are really interested in Reading about the uses of the plants and even then only some of the uses are written in English. If your looking for a beautiful park this is not really it at our visit time.
