  2. Hello Mr Allen,

    Guangzhou is in another provence, and depending on your point of entry, it would not be on the way, and is about 8 hours west of Nan Ning by train. However you can go to Guilin (four hours north) before you come to Nan Ning and tour the city. And then you can get your visa to vitnam. And take a bus or train. By most accounts takeing the bus is the fastest way to Hanoi. Getting your visa can take 1 to 3 business days, depending on how much you want to spend. 340RMB to 550RMB next day.

  3. I am an American living in SW Florida, but I lived in Nanning 4 years and was a teacher at # 3 Middle School 2 years.

    The information above is correct. The trip by bus to Hanoi is about 7 hours. There were no problems getting the visa and no problems crossing the border.

    When you get to Hanoi, I would suggest staying in the Old Quarter because it is in the center of everything you want to see. There is a chain of 5 Camillia Hotels in that area. Guilin is NE of Nanning and about a 4.5 hour bus trip. A very interesting city.

  4. Hello Bruce, The Vietamese consulate was next to the Trancentury Hotel on Minzu DaDao. Do you know if it is still there or has it moved? Also just for some additional FYI I believe that it take 1-4 days to get a visa for Vietnam.
    I like you coming back to site. I am always finding new and useful info here. You are doing a great job.

  5. The Vietnamese consulate in Nanning is on Minzu DaDao, right next to an investment building, a building with a large “G” printed on it. Not sure if it’s always been there. I got my visa there today, so I’m sure it’s still there :D
