A photographer’s dream, Guilin will enchant you from the moment you arrive.
Offering a slower pace, this pleasant and lush city is surrounded by some of China’s most beautiful and dramatic countryside.
Arguably the Li River is the top attraction with crystal clear waters and limestone karst peaks creating a fantasy landscape.
The fantastic shapes and inspired whimsical names have inspired many a writer and artist.
Guilin also offers the chance to experience village life of ethnic minorities in the countryside – Longsheng offers a colourful and diverse mixture of ethnic groups along with stunning scenery including the Dragon’s Backbone Rice Terraces.
Whilst in Guilin, be sure to sample Sanhua (rice wine) reputed as one of three treasures of Guilin, it traces back to the Song Dynasty – mellow and fragrant in taste it also packs a good kick!
