Bailong Park

Once known as Renmin Park, the park has reverted to its old name Bailong meaning white dragon. This peaceful park has beautiful grounds and quiet walkways, perfect for a pleasant stroll. More active visitors can hire boats to row in the lake. The park also has pagodas, a viewing platform and a restaurant.

Nanhu Lake Park

Nanhu Lake Park is located in the southeast of Nanning City and features aquatic sceneries and subtropical gardening landscapes. It covers an area of 1.3 square kilometers (about 0.5 square miles) and a quarter of the whole park is covered by the lake.

Nanhu Lake was once a brook connected to a river but during the Tang Dynasty (618-907), a major flood occurred and submerged the surrounding fields and houses, which was how Nanhu Lake was created.

Nanhu Lake is an ideal place to entertain yourself. In the park, you can fully appreciate the views of various plants, such as Pinang, Chinese fan palms, and other tropical trees. There is a garden with hundreds of precious flowers and bamboo, in which three inner gardens are very attractive places. There are Chinese herbal gardens with over 200 Chinese herbs, orchid gardens and bonsai gardens. A visit in the gardens will reward you with not only abundant knowledge but also the pleasures of nature's beauty.

Above the lake, there is a nine-arch bridge, a scenic bridge, and a long bank where you can get a view of the lake. Fish eateries will also provide you delicious local food. Either boating on the lake or fishing at the shore can offer you an escape from the pressures of city life indeed.

In addition, there is a museum set up in 1984 to commemorate two uprisings in history. It was constructed in the Guangxi folk style which is also of tourist value.
