Liuzhou lies between 108<.53' - 109<.45' E and 23<.54' - 24<.50' N on the River Liu in central Guangxi, 255 km north of  the provincial capital, Nanning and 150km south of Guilin, the main tourist centre. It is the second largest city in Guangxi and the main industrial centre. 

Liuzhou is 1,852 kilometres from Beijing, 1,415 km  from Shanghai and 537 km  from Hong Kong.

Somewhat confusingly, as with all Chinese cities, the name, Liuzhou can refer to both the city and to the prefecture. The prefecture stretches all the way north to the border with Hunan and includes the six counties, Liujiang, Liucheng, Sanjiang, Rongshui, Rong¨an and Luzhai.

As with much of Guangxi, the landscape around Liuzhou is a mix of rolling hills, mountain peaks, caves and karst scenery.



The short version:  Spring is wet and very changeable; summer is hot and humid, autumn is warm, dry and beautiful, winters are short and temperatures rarely fall below zero.

The longer, technical version:

Liuzhou lies just to the north of the Tropic of Cancer in the subtropical monsoon climatic belt. Summers are long and hot, while winters are cool. It rarely drops below zero, but can feel a lot colder than it really is. Remember few buildings are heated and it can be difficult to get away from the cold.
