Chinese women do not like exposing their skin to the sun, so you'll see umbrellas everywhere. A striking thing about Nanning is the ever-present youth... in the many large parks, shops, or out at night. Seems like they dominate the city, in a good way. Other Nanning attractions: The Bird & Flower Market (Yuanhu Road / Zhonghua Road intersection), the Guangxi Provincial Museum (34 Minzu Dadao ~ check out the bronze drums), and the Convention & Exhibition Centre (near the east financial district).

Nanning: More About It
A unique feature of Nanning (capital of Guangxi Province) is the divided main roads. As you can see from the photos below, motorcycles, scooters and bicycles travel on the right side of the islands, cars and trucks get the left side... safety no doubt the motivating factor there. You'll notice the cleanliness of the city right away, but that's true with most big cities in China (in Shanghai there are street cleaners with brooms and trash bags every other city block). Also, alot of beautiful palm trees in Nanning.
