The name “Guangxi” translates to “expansive west,” and this moniker hints at the natural beauty and cultural richness that separates this province from the rest of China.  The most dominating feature of Guangxi is the karst topography that spans from Guilin to Yangshuo and surrounds the Li River in one of the China’s most idyllic scenes. A trip to Guangxi is not complete without taking a boat on the Li River to take in the beautiful scenery and witness the simple, traditional life of local fishermen and villagers. It also has the largest population of ethnic minorities in China, with the majority being of Zhuang, Dong or Miao heritage.
