Travel Tips for this package:
1. Climate: Due to the border area geographically located in the south of tropic of Cancer,  the tropical monsoon climate here is typically warm, with an annual rainfall an average annual temperature of 21.7 degree centigrade, and the frost-free period 365 days. Therefore you don't have to bring much clothes or a big bag for your personal use luggage.
2. Customs: The people in Nanning, Daxin County, Longzhou, Pingxiang along the Sino-Vietnam border are mostly of the Zhuang minority, who are very hosbitable and kind. You may enter their houses, cook with them, dine with them, sing and dance with them. They show very shy sometimes when you take picture of them.But it does not mean  offfending.
3. Roads: The road from Nanning to Daxin, Longzhou, Pingxiang, Ningming Hushan Cliff Painting, Chongzuo are all the beaten road newly built in 2003. Riding bycicles around this area is really a luxiriou one.
4. Accommodations: The hotels in those counties are all at three star's standard, clean and comfortable.But the CAMP or the villager' lodgement in the countryside will be not so convenient. If the tour takes in the summer time, you may take a shower by the Mingshi River. Hot water may be supplied in the winter time, which could give you a simple face washing.
