Guiyang Travel Guide

The interesting city of Guiyang is the capital of Guizhou Province, situated in south western China, and is surrounded by some spectacular natural beauty spots such as caves and waterfalls.

This is a good place to explore for those who love spending time exploring nature but want to be based in the city. Taking a boat trip along the Nanming River is a great way to explore, while those with plenty of energy can go trekking, hiking and rock climbing.

Entertainment options seem limitless here and evening entertainment is much more vibrant than in many other parts of this province. There are plenty of bars to drink in after dark and a few clubs where visitors can dance until dawn. Spoiled by plenty of accommodation, many visitors end up spending several days in Guiyang.
