Guilin is a scenic town located in the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region in south China, known for its magical limestone karst landscape, lush hills, rivers, mysterious caves, rice terrace fields, and ethnic minorities. At the heart of the city are two lakes, Shanhu (Cedar) and Ronghu (Banyan), remaining from a medieval moat that once encircled the place, and joining the Li and Peach Blossom rivers. The twin pagodas and other features on the Shanhu lake light up at night and are a sight to behold. The relaxed pace of life, and the fact that all buildings are restricted to less than 20 floors to not spoil the views – add to its charm. The region is home to verdant vegetation, ranging from terraced rice fields to bamboo forests, coniferous forests making for amazing hikes and bike rides, and limestone karsts offering trekking escapades. Immersive experiences, including making oil tea, cooking rice in bamboo tubes, learning embroidery from the Yao women, and farming activities give you a feel of local life. When night falls, hip clubs and night river cruises come to life. Plenty of snack bars, restaurants, and street food joints will give you a flavor of Guilin cuisine, a mix of Cantonese and Hunan-style cuisines.
