With minimal preparation, in mid Dec, CY and I went backpacking in Guangxi (廣西) for a few days. Here I have put up info of our trip, including itinerary, transportation, accommodation, some tips and suggestions, photos, etc. I hope that you will find this helpful when you go visiting Guangxi.
In addition, note that it was the low season when we were there, hence, the prices of hostels and such were probably cheaper than some other time of the year.
