Lantern Festival falls on the last day of Chinese New Year. Base on the Chinese Lunar Calendar, the 15th is the first night that people can see a full moon. We named it as YuanXiao Festival.

The Radisson Blu Hotel is the only international 5 star hotel located in Liuzhou and probably the first of the many to come. All features as expected of a 5 star hotel.

The Lijing Hotel in Liuzhou is a 4 star hotel. From staying here previously, the bedding is relatively soft (not to the same level as Radisson Blu but still good).
