The 32 Guilin attractions listed are predominantly scenic, with the Li River's karst vistas famous worldwide. Elephant Trunk Hill is the emblem of Guilin. There are countless imaginatively named hills to climb, caves to explore, and rivers and lakes to cruise. The Longsheng rice terraces are a magnificent demonstration of man working in harmony with the landscape.
Merryland, with its theme park rides makes a great children's day out, and nearby Yangshuo caters for the Western tourist well. Guilin is a great place to experience countryside life, with many minority and rural themed attractions. See our Guilin tours or How to Plan a Day in Guilin for some typical ways to combine Guilin's best sights.

Hi Rose, Guilin is suitable for visiting all the year around. In Nov., it is cool, with average low and high temperature of 17 °C (62 °F) and 20 °C (68 °F). Some of the leaves start falling, most leaves turn yellow or red, which is very beautiful. There is a special scenery for the Li River, Peach Blossom River, Longji, Feed Flute Cave & etc, not like the ones in Spring or Summer, but not any inferior.Whitney Liao Replied on 2013-03-14
Thank you for visiting our website and your interests in our service, my name is Cecilia; I am a trip advisor at China Highlights.
You mentioned that you will visit Guilin from 15th Oct-23rd Oct for 9 days; do you have any plans in Guilin? Generally speaking, you could visit all the highlights of Guilin area within 5 days, so if you do not have any other things to do, you are highly recommended to take a tour package including Guilin and other cities. I can and I am very glad to arrange it for you.
Here I recommend 2 options for your reference:
http://www.chinahighlights.com/tour/cht-sc-05/ 9 days Amazing Southwest China Natural Scenery Tour
http://www.chinahighlights.com/tour/cht-114/ 9 days Shanghai, Beijing and Li River Cruise Combo
For weather, It gets cooler and windy in October Guilin; you may need a thick coat in case it becomes cool. The average high and low temperature is respectively at 26 °C (79 °F) and 22 °C (71 °F).
For the hotel, would you please let me know the class you prefer, tourist/deluxe/superior?
Please feel free to contact at Cecilia@chinahighlights.net for any questions about your tour.
I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.
