GUILIN & YANGSHUO OVERVIEW

Home to the stunning Li River, Guilin has been a spot for tourists for decades due to its year round good climate and more often than not the trip down the Li River to the idyllic former fishing village of Yangshuo. Set to a karst mountain background and with a relaxed atmosphere it has an ambiance that is hard to find elsewhere in China. This is a place you can get active and adventurous or simply relax and do nothing and watch the world go slowly by. In short, a must for those wanting to experience the Chinese countryside.

REASON TO VISIT GUILIN & YANGSHUO

Guilin, and more specifically Yangshuo, is both a genuine scenic highlight of China and one of the few places where it is easy to relax for a few days during China tours.

GUILIN & YANGSHUO TRAVEL TIP

Not seeing the Liu SanJie Impressions light show is easy to do with all the cafe’s and bars in Yangshuo but this would be a mistake as you would be missing this extraordinary visual spectacle from the director of the Beijing Olympic opening ceremony, Zhang Yimou.

HAND PICKED GUILIN & YANGSHUO ACCOMMODATION

In Guilin we prefer to Bravo Hotel which maintains good standards and has a great location next to Ronghu lake. In Yangshuo the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat is our favourite if you want to be out of the town and in amongst the scenery. In the town the C. Source West Residence is good.
