  climbing the steps to Duxiu Feng

Duxiu Feng ( the Peak of Lonely Beauty) is in the very middle of the town. To get to the top (152m) you must climb about 300 steps but breathtaking views are a real reward. In the 14th century there used to be a palace at the foot of the hill, but now there are just the remains of it.
Apart from the fantastic views I was also impressed by a couple of other things here and all over Guilin. The place is very neat and tidy. Every hundred metres or so there are dustbins and you won't find any litter elsewhere. Considering the fact that all touristic places are visited by crowds of people it came as a nice surprise.

Directions: in the very centre of the city

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
