At last, more good news for those already here and those planning to visit Nanning, the capital of Guangxi.
Both Museums are now OPEN.
Firstly I must apologise as today on my first visit to the Guangxi Museum of Nationalities I forgot to take my camera, I will visit again though in the next couple of days and post some pictures here.
It's another fine architectural building and along with the modern looking glazed Guangxi Science and Technology Museum we now have a brace of very large pleasing on the eye and enjoyable venues to visit and enjoy whilst here in Nanning.
Both very well laid out, spacious and interesting from several points of view. Not to mention, air conditioned. - say no more...
The Guangxi Science and Technology Museum is located on Minzu Dadao as I have already explained in one of the earlier posts. Easy to get to, serviced by many buses and any taxi driver worth his salt will know of it's existence.
The elegantly designed Guangxi Museum of Nationalities is a little more tricky to get to at this moment in time. Situated on the new road and market area 青山下琅农贸市场旁边 (sorry at the moment I have no English name for the road and market area)
It is situated in what I would call the new Qingxiushan Yongjiang river area. Directly behind Qingxiushan scenic park and alongside the Yongjiang river.
Today I saw a number 33 bus and a number 57 bus outside the Museum.
The 33 used to terminate at Qingxiushan but it seems it now continues on the Museum.
Taxis were about and bikes and Vanettes were numerous. They were charging 3 RMB from Qingxiushan each way.
We are lucky as my wife has her shop at Qingxiushan so it's only a 5/10 minute electric bike ride away for us.
This is a newly developing area, very nice I might add, and I am sure in the next few years a further delightful place for strolling and playing.
And more importantly the new Nanning Bridge in the process of being built is in the same area and you actually pass by it from Qingxiushan, take it from me, you bridge anoraks, this is a bridge, a real bridge. I have watched it take shape this past 18 months and even today we stopped to look in awe at it under construction - Amazing, I'll say no more but if here in Nanning, you must see it.
If you want to see it in it's raw state, best be quick, it is due for completion soon.
For those that struggle to find the area, call in the shop, either myself or my wife will be happy to point you in the right direction.
