Liuzhou, the "Dragon City" in China's southern Guangxi Province, recently welcomed its first international hotel brand with the opening of Radisson Blu Hotel Liuzhou.

Ideal for business travelers with its location right in the heart of the CBD, the hotel also caters to tourists and is indicative of the growing visitor interest in Liuzhou, which is known for its natural, historical and cultural attractions. The villages around Liuzhou are also home to the colorful Miao ethnic minority who hold an annual horse fighting festival. (Yes, really.)

Rooms are available from RMB648 (S$132). Book your stay at their website and visit here to find out more about Liuzhou.
