The specific location and facilities


Where is the placement located in the province?

Hezhou University is in Babu town, which is part of Hezhou City.Hezhou city governs Zhongshan, Zhaoping and Fuchuan Counties.

Hezhou city is located in the northeastern part of Guangxi, adjoining Hunan in the north and Guangdong in the east.

The main local economy is agriculture and in particular many fruits are cultivated. There is little industry, although there are a number of light industries - china, white cement, papermaking, plywood, a pharmaceutical factory and a sugar plant.

Hezhou is mid way between Guangzhou and Guilin. It is located in a picturesque ¡®karst¡¯ landscape region. A river runs through the city. The surrounding countryside is very green, with patchworks of fields, and bamboo and palm trees lining the roads and rivers.

¡®Babu¡¯ means eight stores. There is still evidence of the original shops in Lao Jie, the old street leading up from the university gate. The street has been improved but is evidently protected from over - development. This corner of Hezhou still maintains an atmosphere of real old China.

The stone forest

What is the climate like?

Hezhou has a sub tropical monsoon climate. Summer is long and hot with temperature that could reach 34 degrees Celsius. Winter is short and the lowest temperature could be 1 degrees. Snow is rarely seen. But damp and stone building in this part of China hold chill in winter. So it can get very cold inside. Though foreign teacher's flats have air conditioning, but not the classrooms. So warm clothes are necessary.

Annual rainfall in Hezhou is between 1500 to 1900 mm. Rain gear is very important as it rains a lot in spring, and it can be quite cold and damp before the heat of summer arrives. Another useful thing to bring is light summer wear. As textiles and garments are very reasonable nowadays in China, you can always buy what you need locally, if you are of normal size. Otherwise you can get clothes made by local tailors.

What transport links are there to other placements?

Gupo Mountain

The easiest way to get to Babu is through Guilin, a famous international tourist city in China. There are several express bus services between Guilin and Babu (Hezhou) every day, and it takes 3 hours. Express buses are very punctual, and faster than trains. They are air-conditioned, and do not stop to pick people up. They show movies which often feature Jackie Chan and have English subtitles.

The buses pass through Yangsuo - a beautiful town by a river, which is a well known backpackers' haunt. The bus will stop to let people off there (it is around 3 hours between Babu to Yangshuo) but you cannot get back on an Express bus there to go back to Babu.

Wuzhou is 3 hours away by Express bus, and overnight buses go to Nanning (6 hours) and Guangzhou (6 hours). There are airports in Guilin, Nanning and Guangzhou, from which a variety of domestic and international destinations can be reached. These cities also have rail links with the rest of China.

What health facilities are there?

The University has a clinic for minor ailments, and the hospital is just around the corner.

What about food / shopping / entertainment?

There are markets just outside the University gates selling a variety of fruit and vegetables. The biggest free market in Babu is about 10 minutes' walk away and has a bewildering array of vegetables, meat, spices, beans and other goods. New retails outlets, especially clothes and shoe shops seem to open weekly, with very fashionable reasonably priced clothes for westerners of size 12 (female) and under.

There are two supermarkets near the university, it is about 10 minutes¡¯ walk away. Supermarkets have an excellent range of toiletries and food, such as instant coffee, milk and lots of cooking ingredients. Yogurt is available and milk can be ordered on campus. Cheese is available in milk store.

The town centre is about 10-15 minutes on foot. As the area is flat, walking is easy.

Babu now has two main squares, recently constructed and very impressive. They are a hive of activity in the evenings and at weekends. You can participate in public aerobics morning and evening, stroll round, patronize the food stalls etc.

There are many good Chinese restaurants locally as well as the simple cafes offering basic menus very cheaply. There is one western-style restaurant which is better avoided! The university has three canteens offering meals both at lunchtime and early evening. The food is fresh, tasty and very cheap.

Near the town there is a National Forest Park, which is a popular place for outings. In spring and autumn the students go there for picnics, or to the park on the hill, which is nearer to the town. There are also hot springs near Babu and some more new tourist sights are being developed. It should be very enjoyable to get out into the countryside on a bike and appreciate some of the amazing scenery.

(Can the foreign teachers maintain a vegetarian diet etc?)

There is certainly no problem in being a vegetarian in Babu as a variety of vegetables and fruits are always available, though these vary with seasons.


The accommodation for foreign teachers at Hezhou University is of a high quality.The university will provide rent free accommodation (a flat-- a living room, two bedroom )with hard and soft furnishings and linen. Foreign teachers will not pay for utilities.
