Guilin

Trip Planner Asia  /  China  /  Guangxi  /  Guilin
(3.3/5 based on 4,200+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: nature, sightseeing, parks
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. Make your own Guilin vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our China trip itinerary builder.
