Top Things to Do in Guilin in August

Try cassia tea and smell the flowers.

The end of August is also when the cassia trees start to bloom. The smell is invigorating, but tea made from the yellow flowers is mellow. It tastes almost exactly like cinnamon and is used as a substitute for cinnamon.

Walk around Two Rivers and Four Lakes.

In the evening, walking around the Chinese Fir Lake and Banyan Lake, you can enjoy colorful illuminations of the Sun Tower, the Moon Tower and the glass bridge.

Visit Longji Terraces in Longsheng.

August is the perfect time to take photos of the Longji Terraces when they are full of green rice stalks. The green rice gives you a scene of vitality and passion. It is quite rejuvenating. There are also tea plantations where you can enjoy picking your own tea.

It is also a good time to hike around there. There are about 65 square kilometers of these terraces to walk around in, and the elevation of the highest peaks is about 1,000 meters (3,200) feet high. Hikers like to visit small villages and have a meal and explore off the beaten tourist path. The ethnic farming villages, their architecture, and their food are all memorable. There are about 8 different ethnic groups sharing the terraced region.

Enjoy a Rafting on the Yulong River.

Hot, sunny August is the best time for rafting and water sports such as kayaking. You can use the long days for seeing the sights, and then enjoy the long dusks and warm evenings. Two other good rafting options in the area are the Twelve Beaches and the Nine Horse Fresco Hill. Some people raft down the Li River instead of taking a cruise boat tour.

We can arrange a car ride back to Yangshuo or Guilin for you. You could also take bikes on board the rafts and then ride back on bikes and see the countryside before sundown. Some people hike back.
