  • Great trip up the chairlift to see some of the surrounds of Guilin.  A decent long ride and some interesting views. We had three kids under 1.4m so they couldn't ride alone, so we paid our taxi driver to accompany our oldest. The kids weren't very well secured but most of the time you aren't very far off the ground. Our weather was foggy so we couldn't see really far but it meant the ride wasn't too hot.
  • 坐索道挺刺激的,用另一種方法感受桂林的美景,起霧時猶如置身於仙景一般😄值得一試。當然在索道上是寒冷的。
  • 去堯山看到了桂林的精髓,就是一座座大小一的小山,搭纜車上去,一路看到綿延不斷的小山,好美。下山時玩了滑梯,一定要玩,是一個完美的結束
