Guilin

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 which have inspired many a writer and artist.

Guilin also offers the chance to experience village life in the countryside – Longsheng is home to a colourful and diverse mixture of ethnic groups along with stunning scenery including the Dragon’s Backbone Rice Terraces.

Reputed as one of three treasures of Guilin, whilst visiting, be sure to sample Sanhua (rice wine) tracing back to the Song Dynasty.
