Weather: The weather continues to warm up in April, and there are heavy rains of the monsoon season that stretches until the end of August. It is the fourth rainiest month of the year, but the rain raises the Li River and creates some beautiful green scenery for a Li River cruise.

The average daily low and high temperatures are respectively 16 °C (60 °F) and 23°C (73 °F). There is about 250 mm (10 inches) of total rainfall each April, and it rains about 20 days of the month. See the current weather and forecast>>

Clothing: Prepare several changes of clothes for the changeable spring weather and the rain. We recommend a T-shirt, shorts, a rainproof jacket, and pants or jeans. Bring an umbrella.

Things to Do

Enjoy a Guilin River Cruise: The river scenery is eulogized throughout China, and it is one of the world's top river cruises. Some tourists say they've wanted to see the river all their lives. A cruise typically travels between the Guilin Zhujiang Pier and Yangshuo, 83 kilometers (52 miles) in four hours, with a light buffet lunch on board. Popular Yangshuo activities include river rafting or biking among the exotic hills. All our Guilin packages include a Li River cruise .

Bamboo rafting: Another fun way to see the scenery is to go on a Li River or Yulong River raft trip. April is a good moth for bamboo rafting as it is the beginning of the rainy season brings almost daily drizzles and the characteristic mist hugging the hills.

See the local festivals: In the Guilin region, the ethnic minority festivals in March and April (depending on the date in the lunar calendar) include the Dong Firecracker Festival and the Zhuang Song Festival. We can find out the dates and help arrange the trip.

See the Longsheng Terraces filled with water: When the terraced fields have been filled with rain, the Longsheng Terraces are just like mirrors. See the magnificent sight of the Longsheng Terraces reflecting the blue sky and green mountains, before the rice obscures the water.

There is no such hotel with mini kitchennette or serviced apartment near the TCM Hospital. In China, most of the mini kitchen at hotels cannot be used. There is a nice hotel near TCM Hospital called Jing Guan Ming Lou Holiday Hotel cost about US$70. Cindy Feng replied on 2010-12-17
