prefecture-level city in Guangxi, China

Guigang (贵港) is a prefecture city in Central Guangxi.

UnderstandEdit

Guigang is not a tourist city and is unlikely to be on anybody's bucket list. That being said, it does have a few things going for it. For instance, the city is relatively uncrowded by Chinese standards and there are a number of decent parks. If you get bored, Guiping, the nearest moderately touristy city, is only 20 minutes away by high-speed train.
