Guilin

3.2
The riverside karst landscape around Guilin has long made it a favorite with Chinese poets, photographers, and travelers. The city serves as an ideal base for explorations of the province's natural sights and small villages, where ethnic communities tend to the terraced rice paddies that, along with the dramatic limestone formations, stand as a symbol of Guilin. The rice cultivated here remains central to the distinctive local cuisine, with Guilin rice noodles a staple at breakfast time and renowned throughout the country. Be sure to try some Sanhua Jiu (a rice wine) during your holiday in Guilin. Guilin is in Guangxi. Our China online trip itinerary maker allows you to plan your trip to Guilin and a wealth of other destinations big and small.
