-Travel to Nanhu Lake Park

Nanhu Lake Park in the southeast of Nanning City covers an area of 1.3 square kilometers (about 0.5 square miles) with a quarter of the whole park covered by the lake. Nanhu Lake was once a brook connecting to a river. A major flood occurred and submerged the surrounding houses and fields during the Tang Dynasty (618-907 D.C.), that was how the now Nanhu Lake was formed.
In the Nanhu Lake Park, tourists 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, containing three attractive inner gardens, the Chinese herbal gardens with over 200 kinds of Chinese herbs, the orchid gardens and the bonsai gardens. A visit in the gardens will reward you with not only abundant knowledge but also the pleasures of natural beauty.

Above the lake, there is a nine-arch scenic bridge and a long bank where you can get a view of the lake. Fish eateries will also provide you with delicious local food. Either boating on the lake or fishing at the shore can indeed offer you an escape from the pressures of the city life. One more sight worth visiting in the Nanhu Lake Park is the Baise Uprising Museum built in 1984. It is to commemorate the Baise and Longzhou Uprising in 1927 led by Dengxiaoping, one of the most distinguished leaders of Chinese Communist Party.
