Guilin Weather in January
Weather: January is the coldest month in Guilin. It rarely snows and the temperature is not low compared to cities in North China, but it feels quite cold with the dampness and wind, and there is usually no heating in most places.
Clothing: Prepare warm clothes such as down jackets, thick sweaters, gloves and scarves to keep warm. Sometimes the roads are slippery due to dampness and frost, so wearing comfortable skid-proof walking shoes is recommended.
Low Season: Winter (November to March) is the low travel season, and traveling to Guilin is less crowded and it is cheaper than usual.
Things to Do
"Warm" Caves: Guilin has a lot of natural caves, the best of which include Reed Flute Cave and Seven Star Cave in Guilin, and Silver Cave in Lipu Country, close to Yangshuo. These caves really feel quite warm when entering from outdoors, so are a good choice at this time of the year.
If Chinese New Year falls in January you can see city streets colorfully decorated with red lanterns and colorful flags. New Year songs are cheerfully played at department stores and supermarkets. This is the best time of the year to experience traditional Chinese culture.
Li River cruises operate all year around. Although the scenery is not as good as during the rest of the year, you still can see the famous peculiar limestone mountains. All ships are air-conditioned, so it is comfortable inside the cruise ships.
