Guangxi Zhuang

Known as the land of fruits or “Gui” for short, the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region offers convenient access to the sea and plays a significant role in economic exchanges between China and Southeast Asia. The region’s subtropical monsoon climate ensures richness in marine life, including animals and plants. Complimenting this is a backdrop of splendid historic karst landforms punctuated by peak forests which contribute to the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Regionís distinct charm.  The cities Guilin and Yangshuo hosts the most striking limestone karsts dubbed lotus and bamboo shoots like by Xu Xiake, noted traveler-geographer of the Ming Dynasty.

Culturally diverse with a wide array of ethnic groups and dialects represented, Guangxi is also home to more than 140 monumental relics, numerous ancient architectures, cultural sites, water conservancy projects, stone carvings, tombs, and revolutionary memorials. In fact, for explorers, the region has more than 100,000 caves and stone forests with extraordinary anemolite, stalagmites, stone curtains, flowers, and pillars. Notable ones include: Guilin Reed Flute Cave, Seven Star Cave, Liuzhou Dole Rock, Longyin Cave (with more than 200 inscriptions from the Tang Dynasty to the Qing Dynasty), and Liuzhou White Lotus Cave, an important prehistoric site.
