Itinerary

1

Arrival in Nanning - Mingshi

Estimate distance and journey time: Nanning airport – Mingshi village (approx. 175km): approx 3h30 (more if you arrive at Nanning train station) *Depends on local situation (the weather/construction/traffic jam, etc…), may take longer station)

Begin the Mingshi tour with an arrival into Nanning’s airport or train station. En route to the hotel, take note of the verdant rice paddies and ‘Sugarloaf Mountains’- karst formations jutting from the rolling countryside- simply breathtaking! Accommodation, daily activities, and regional encounters all intertwine in this itinerary, with two main hotels to choose from. Mingshi Mountain Village hugs a riverside locale at the foothills of an imposing rocky peak, while the Art Hotel sits 200 meters away, across the other side of the peak. Patrons to the Art Hotel are still able to benefit from the services of Mingshi Mountain Hotel.

Overnight in Mingshi.

Mingshi

Day Two is spent taking full advantage of the services offered at Mingshi Hotel.

For a more relaxing retreat, enjoy a dip in the riverside swimming pool, soak in the outdoor Jacuzzi, enjoy a day at the spa, or dine at one of the many restaurants bordering the river. For those seeking a bit more adventure, fishing excursions, river rafting, or cycling trips are available along the Mingshi River (prices not included; please consult guide.)

For nearby cycling (or walking) options, rent one of the hotel’s bicycles and embark (with guide) on one of the following routes:

- Luck Line (6.8km): Simple, but pleasant; a journey  across the Mingshi River, passing through quaint villages along the way.

- Happiness Line (13.7km): A serpentine trail through sites of natural beauty, passing destinations such as “the Wedding Night”, the “Phoenix looking at the Sun”, or the “Kiss of the Heavenly Lion”; crossing the river twice and passing several villages along the way.

- Hero Line (20.5km): The longest of the four options. Not crossing the river, this path instead focuses on beautiful plant life with bamboo, maples, silk-cotton trees, and fields of sugarcane surrounding the trail. You will pass through the town of Kanxu as well as several villages.

- Discovery Line (18km): An entirely unique route compared to the others; perfect for those wishing to extend their explorations.

Night in Mingshi

Mingshi - Detian - Nanning

Estimate distance and journey time: Mingshi village – Detian waterfalls (approx. 40km): approx 1 h Detian waterfalls – Nanning (approx 210km): approx 4h *Depends on local situation (the weather/construction/traffic jam, etc…), may take longer

Leaving behind the beauty of Mingshi, this final leg of the journey displays the breathtaking Detian Falls. At 40 meters high, 200 meters wide, and split over three levels, the Detian Falls are the biggest waterfalls in Asia (shared between China and Vietnam.) Karst formations (also nicknamed sugarloaves) sit against a backdrop of waterfalls, making the Detian Waterfalls one of the most beautiful sites in the province.

Enjoy a walk of around two hours exploring the beautiful intricacies of the falls; a short rafting trip can also be arranged for those keen on getting a closer look.

From the Detian Falls, return to Nanning via the town of Daxin for final transfer to the airport (or train station).
