Beyond the Luzuyang River in the autonomous region of China, the Chinese city of Luzhou, the industrial center of the region, is now located in the autonomous province of Guangxi. Its area is notable for its many cultural attractions and lodgings. Luzhou and Nanjing, the capital city of the province, are separated by 255 kilometers.

In Chinese, the name of the city means City of the Dragon. Many industries have developed here, including chemical, paper, paper products, and construction. Luzjou is famous for its production of textile and sugar products. The tourism industry is developing. A number of comfortable hotels and restaurants with excellent cuisine and decent service offer visitors to the city a truly great vacation experience.

The local natural landscapes are a destination that no traveler can ignore. The citys territory is fringed by the Liujiang River. Nearby, the surrounding mountain massifs are fascinating, and in one of them, under the name of Lianyouhua, we found remains of the ancient inhabitants of the area – the people of ancient China. Archaeological investigations have revealed numerous objects of ancient times of great historical value. The design was inspired by traditional Chinese culture. In Liyouhou Park is the Temple of Liyouhouhou, dedicated to Liu Yongyun, the philosopher and literary scholar who lived in Liyouhou. A peculiar feature of the city is the collection of many different shapes and sizes of stones, called “Rare Stone”.

Currently, Luzhou is considered a traditional venue for its famous national festivals, one of which is the Meuo Festival. Equally fascinating are the performances of ensembles, including choir singers of Yao and Chuan. The citys surroundings are rich in architectural structures of the Dún ethnic minorities, including the Mápán Baraba Tower.
