Guilin is a popular tourist destination, famous for its karst landscape and idyllic countryside. The limestone hills jut randomly out and point to the sky, as the Li River winds its way peacefully through, creating a picture of timeless beauty.
Outdoor activities like hiking and biking will bring you in touch with nature and local peoples' daily lives. As the Chinese saying goes, Guilin's unique scenery "tops everything under heaven". If you've never been to China before, Guilin should be on your "must-visit" list.
Guilin is suitable for travelling all year round, as each season has its unique beauty.
If you would like to take part in any of these experiences, exclusive to China Highlights, please ask your travel advisor to add them to your itinerary.
Li River cruises: We have selected the newly operated 4-star boats serving a buffet lunch.
Yangshuo cycling: Unlike other agencies, we will take you by private vehicle from the congested town streets to the country roads to start your biking experience.
Authentic Guilin food experiences: We at China Highlights have specially designed a "Guilin Food" brochure, selecting a number of dishes that are favorites with customers and locals for you to sample during your stay in Guilin.
See TripAdvisor for how customers have praised our guides.
Flexible: "… Jessica was very flexible and responded to all our requests changing the order of our tour in response to our fears about the weather forecasts, providing vegetarian food as per my wife's request. Excellent service, plus the good sense to step back and let us have privacy while eating in the restaurants…"
Caring:"... We took the two day Guilin tour arranged by China Highlights. Our guide was Henry, a very friendly and energetic guy! He had funny anecdotes on many things and helped us with choosing food, suggesting different activities to do during our free time, sightseeing and made our stay really great…"
Helpful: "Jenny was incredibly informative and happy to assist with all of our questions, from the Li river, to agricultural practices, to Chinese history, to modern day culture. She had done the Li river cruise once a week for almost twenty years, and showed us the best spots for pictures, and even took lots for us.…"
