"GUILIN - now you're in..." China Things to Do Tip by dzni

China Things to Do: 765 reviews and 1,190 photos

GUILIN - now you're in Southern China, but this smallish city is still very neat, like the other places I've mentioned. Surrounding the city, and especially along the Li River, are these spectacular, Dr. Seuss-like looking mountains, jutting up everywhere. Take the Li River Cruise and see these. Heck, I even saw some nice waterfalls along the way. There were water buffalo as well, not to mention small, local fishermen dotting the river in places. Not to be missed, as well, is the night market in Guilin... there are lanterns everywhere lighting up the goods the locals are selling - yes, a lot of junk and trinkets that you see around the rest of China are sold here too. But, it's well worth it, and a lot of fun, if you're not too tired from shopping and haggling already!
