Detian Waterfall Scenic Area in Daxin county, Chongzuo city was officially rated as a national top-rated 5A tourist attraction on Oct 29.

Located in South China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region on the border with Vietnam, the waterfall is the biggest cross-border waterfall in Asia and the fourth-largest in the world. It straddles both China and Vietnam, as well as the Pingxiang Friendship Pass, a main route for people traveling between the two countries.
