Nanning

Nanning is the center of the Zhuang minority culture, and its population is more than 63% Zhuang.

The Zhuang are strongly assimilated into Han Chinese culture however, with some remnant customs such as the Longboat (Dragon Boat) races held on the 5th day of the 5th lunar month (around the beginning of June).The Miao, Yao, and Dong minority cultures were more independent, and the Miao and Yao remained in the hill regions of the province in the 19th century, with several uprisings that were forcefully suppressed by the Han Chinese authorities. The Miao and Dong are noted for their traditions of silver jewellery

Military Parade in Beijing 3 September

On 3 September, there will be a military parade through the centre of Beijing as part of national commemorations for the 70th anniversary of the end of World War 2. This is likely to cause major disruption to the city. Beijing Capital International Airport and Nanyuan Airport will be closed between 9:30am and 12:30pm, as well as many roads and subway lines. You should take suitable precautions to factor in the possibility of delays and/or cancellations.

There will also be no-go zones, particularly around Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. Security around the city will be heightened and additional ID checks carried out. We advice caution when taking photographs of the parade. Some hotels along the parade route are informing guests of about restrictions about leaving their premises. You should monitor local media for updates.
