Day 1：The Mid-Autumn Festival on the road
We set out after the breakfast at 8 o 'clock on October 4th.
The day of departure just be the Mid-Autumn festival, and the Mid-Autumn festival with my parents on the road is also interesting. It is said that the place where there are parents is called as home. Because the driving distance from Guizhou province to Fangchenggang, Guangxi province is about eight hours, so we are on the way on the first day, we have lunch in the service area of Nanning, Guangxi province. We eat some bread and snacks which are prepared by my mom in the car when we are hungry. Mom's snacks are enough to cover the whole trip, there will be no shortage of mooncakes!
The scenery along the way is very beautiful! From Guizhou province to Guangxi province, blue sky and white cloud are all the way even if the departure at first is a cloudy day of rain, the sky is still showing blue with changable clouds, then which cluster into various objects. Along the way, the sky and the landscape make the long drive distance less difficult, more vivid and more valuable.
It was already night when we arrived at the hotel of Fangchenggang, so we went to bed after taking a shower, keeping sufficient energy to meet the official trip next day.
Day 2：White wave Beach & Sanniang Bay
第2天：白浪滩 & 三娘湾
At first, We went to the White wave Beach. The experience in white beach is not very good, It seems not to be suitable for swimming, may be the time is wrong. The sea water is very dirty that day, no one swam, we walked a circle in the sea, the legs are all sand, so we can't go swimming. Then, we took the photograph on the beach, ate the seafood porridge and seafood fried rice noodles on the shore, and we decided to Sanniang Bay after lunch.
When we arrived at the parking lot of Sanniang Bay, we met a local villager and said she could take us in, so we followed her to a hot seafood restaurant on the seaside. After choosing fresh seafood for dinner in the seafood restaurant, we went to the seaside to enjoy the scenery.
The overall feeling that Sanniang Bay give to me is simple and primitive, the sea of Sanniang Bay is also very cloudy, not suitable for swimming, but its characteristics is that there are a lot of fishing boats stopped on the sea park, if you can come here earlier, you can follow local fishermen to fish, you will can see the dolphins if lucky enough. Fishing boats and calm seas form a beautiful landscape, even the sky is the shape of "love you".
After playing photographs, we began to have dinner. Looking at unique seascape, blowing wind, eating seafood, a few chickens passed occasionally, what kind of experience which is? Maybe it's about flying yourself, haha!
After dinner, we began to return to the hotel. The second day was over.
Day 3：Gold Beach& Dongxing Port
第3天：万尾金滩 & 东兴口岸
In the morning on third day, we had breakfast in the restaurant next to the hotel, which is with characteristic of Guangxi, because a lot of dessert are we don't seen before, so we ordered a lot, all the food are indeed delicious, and finally we packed food that can't be ate.
After breakfast, we started to go to Dongxing, through a long bridge over the sea. I have to say, the view of the driver on the bridge is really fantastic! (I was driving for the first time after I got my driver's license). There is a famous scenic spot in the middle of Fangchenggang and Dongxing - Gold Beach, and a famous seafood market. The water in the golden beach is not very clear, but it can swim and the waves are very big. I couldn't help but run away in the sea, as if I was floating in the sea, and I nearly can’t leave in the waves until my skin had traces. However, the result of crazy surfing is to be sunburned in the autumn.
After showering and changing clothes on the shore, we came to the seafood market, tourists are usually buying seafood they want in the seafood market, then processing seafood in the restaurant, the restaurants around the market process seafood specially, you can choose steamed, Fried, etc., they can cook well. The price of this seafood market is relatively low, and the variety is relatively whole, so very famous. Here, you can see a lot of big seafood and eat the seafood well!
Day 4：Eat in Dongxing & on the way home
第4天：吃在东兴 & 归途
Dongxing city and Vietnam are separated from the Beilun river, so you can apply for Vietnamese visa at Dongxing travel agency one day in advance, and you will be able to carry out a one-day trip to Vietnam next day.
Since we will return next day when we arrived, so it's a pity that we have not been able to go to Vietnam, experience the Vietnam customs, we can only see the port and see the "little house" of Vietnam in the far side of the river.
Although we are not able to go to Vietnam, Dongxing port is also worth visiting, In the port, there are many Vietnamese people selling some Vietnamese special products and tropical fruits. Because the tropical fruits of Vietnam are cheaper, you can eat the durian, sakarah and the big mango as many as possible here.
In the morning on the 4th day, we went to a breakfast store with Vietnam characteristics, we ordered the bread, chicken rice noodles and the spring rolls as shown in figure, ingredients are same as we usually eat at home, but the way to cook has very big difference, Vietnam bread for me is still unforgettable.
After breakfast, we set out on our way home, and the journey to Guangxi ended with a meal of Vietnamese characteristics.
Travel tips in Guangxi:
1.If you want to visit the dolphin's in Sanniang Bay, you must reserve the room in Sanniang Bay in advance! Because the fishermen are going out to sea in the morning. Since Sanniang Bay has not yet been developed completely, there are fewer rooms available online, which are very popular in the holidays, so be sure to advance!
2.Pay attention to prevent sun! Don't be fooled by the season and the weak sun, the ultraviolet rays are very strong, or you will be sunburned in the autumn like me.
3.If you want to travel Vietnam, remember to go to Dongxing one day in advance! You can apply for Vietnamese visa at Dongxing travel agency one day in advance, and you will be able to carry out a one-day trip to Vietnam next day.
