Vietnamese Visas in Nanning

I'm posting this because I had great problems getting any usable information about where and how to find the Vietnamese Consulate.

The address for the Vietnam consulate in Nanning is 109 Minzu Dadao. It's quite a long way from the centre of Nanning, but if you start from the railway station and walk south down Chaoyang Lu past Walmart, then turn east onto Minzu Dadao at the main intersection, then walk for about 2 or 3 km. The consulate is on the left just after the big intersection after the big bridge across the lake. Alternatively catch the No.6 bus which covers the same route (check the bus numbers at the bus stops because it doesn't stop at every one) and get off at the second stop after the big bridge. We got next day visas for 500Y each in November 2005.

Also, we got bus tickets from the East bus station direct to Hanoi (I can't remember how much we paid, possibly 130Y, I think it was comparible or slightly cheaper than the train). The East bus station is the last stop for the No.6 bus on the same route described above and is about twice as far as the consulate out of town. This made the boarder crossing really easy as we had anticipated having to mess around with minibuses, motorbikes and people generally trying to rip us off. Also the bus ticket includes lunch where money changers will change your last few Yuan, the rates seemed okay but make sure you know what they should be.

Hope that's of some help
