Guilin Weather in April 2024: Travel Tips

Written by GavinUpdated Apr. 3, 2024
Guilin Weather April

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.

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.

Top Things to Do in Guilin in April

Bamboo Rafting OnTthe Li RiverBamboo rafting on the Li River

Enjoy a Guilin River Cruise

The Li 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 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 .

Take a Bamboo Rafting Trip

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.
