"Watch out for friendly English students!" Guilin Tourist Trap Tip by tomks

Guilin Tourist Traps: 15 reviews and 23 photos

Friendly English students approach you on the street and offer to guide you around Guilin so they can practice their language skills. Or so they say... After a few hours you might start wondering how long this student is going to stick around for. The only way to get out of it is to ask (tell) them to leave or they will want you to take them for dinner. And guess who's got to pay for it?

Unique Suggestions: Make sure you agree to let them stay around for an hour only. A friend who didn't want to be bothered told the student he was German. Unfortunately the student was fluent in German, too!

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
