Guilin is home to some of the most stunning scenery in China, with its dramatic karst landscapes towering above the tranquil waters of the Li River it has become a must visit destination on any holiday in China.

Guilin is a slice of paradise, and is the starting point of the spectacular half day cruise down the Li River to the village of Yangshuo. The Li River meanders through the heart of this delightful region and taking a cruise along the Li River is the best way to truly appreciate the regions natural beauty,  as every river bend presents a new, rural scene –with water buffalo wallowing in the shallows, conical hatted farmers tending their fields and fishermen searching for the catch of the day.

Guilin has more to offer than just the river, and any visit would not be complete without a visit to the illuminated Reed Flute Caves, where you’ll learn about stalactite and stalagmite formations. After sunset, the Cormorant Fishermen demonstrate their traditional way of fishing which have been practised for centuries.

Guilin's urbanity contrasts starkly with its spectacular natural setting, making it easy to escape the pressures of the modern world by merely stepping outside the city limits. Although popular with tourists, all you need to do is head out amongst the paddy fields, cruise the languid waters of the river, or find a spot to enjoy the beautiful scenery around you to find peace and tranquillity.
