We plan to visit Guilin from 24 March to 29 march. What are the best places to visit

Hi Teresa, the best places in Guilin are: the Li River cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo, the Terraced Fields in Longsheng, the countryside in Yangshuo where there would be vast stretches of rape flowers, the Reed Flute Cave, the Elephant Trunk Hill, etc.

Do you need any tour service? We would like to send you an itinerary for your reference. Could you please kindly let me know the number of people and class of hotel you'd like to stay in? Thanks, Whitney

I am planning to go to Guilin on 28th January ,planning to stay there for a week.what are the places that I shouldn''t miss ?how is the nightlife there?

Hi Jazz, below are some places recomended:

1. Elephant Trunk Hill (exterior view), it is not necessary to go inside the park, as really not much worth visiting.

2. Li River cruise

3. Yangshuo county and the countryside

4. Longsheng Terraced Field in Guzhuangzhai (the fields are in the period of water storage )

5. Daxu Ancient Town, while you can see the local customs in Chinese New Year

Regarding to the nightlife, I suggest that you go to the Zhengyang Pedestrian Street. There are bars, stores, snack senter, etc.

You can also walk around the Sun and Moon Pagoda Park and the Ronghu Park. The night views are beautiful.

Have fun in Guilin!
