Liuzhou

 

Liuzhou is located in the north-central part of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region bordering on Guilin in the east. It shares a boundary with Hunan Province in the north and Guizhou Province in the northwest.

Liuzhou belonged to Guilin Shire during the Qin Dynasty (221BC-206BC), and it was not until the Western Han Dynasty (206BC-24AD) that the city that was to become Liuzhou came into being. During the Tang Dynasty (618-907), the name of this area was changed from Maping County to Liuzhou.

Liuzhou has a typical karst landform with the clear Liuhe River flowing through the city. It is surrounded by mountains in the east, west and north. The terrain consists of river bends in the city center, karst plains in the northern part, isolated peaks and valleys in the south, and river terraces, karst basins and hills in the east.

Liuzhou enjoys a subtropical monsoon climate with moderate temperatures and abundant rainfall. The summers are long and hot, while the winters are short and not so cold.

Visitors can enjoy a trip in Liuzhou in any season. Because it is often rainy, umbrellas and rain jackets are indispensable to visitors while traveling here.

Liuzhou has a large population of ethnic minorities, and there are many celebrations and festivals all the year round. Sanjiang Dong Autonomous County and Rongshui Miao Autonomous County are the most distinctive places to admire the customs of the ethnic minorities in Liuzhou.
