Guilin Weather in February 2024: Travel Tips

Weather: The coldest month has gone, but there are sharp rises and falls of temperature at intervals. Sometimes it is gloomy, but it is still pleasant when the sun is out. On the cold days, the wind and damp adds to the chill. There is usually no heating in most places except the top hotels and the cruise ships, and this makes it feel doubly chilly on those days.

The average daily low and high temperatures are respectively 13 °C (55 °F) and 7 °C (45 °F). There is about 98 mm of total rainfall each month, and though it rains most of the days of the month, it is one of the driest months of the year.

Clothing: Generally a thick coat or a thick sweater and an umbrella are enough to cope with the weather.

Top Things to Do in Guilin in February

Explore "Warm" Caves

Reed Flute CaveReed Flute Cave

Although Guilin is in the cold tail end of winter in February, there are quite a few places which are warm and comfortable for sightseeing compared to outside, such as the natural karst caves.

Inside these caves, there are limestone formations of all shapes. Lit with colorful lights, they look like natural palaces. The most frequented caves include Reed Flute Cave, Seven Star Cave, and Crown Cave.

Relax at the Hot Springs

Longsheng is another good place to go. There are five-star hotels at the hot springs site, and you can also find more economical ones to suit you. During the Spring Festival, the hotels might be fully booked, so try to reserve one in advance.

Take an Enchanting Cruise

Drizzles and fog might make the scenery of the Li River enchanting, but the water level is low. Cruises still operate, and they provide a nice lunch and a warm cabin.

Experience Chinese New Year

The Spring Festival usually falls in February, and it's a good time to experience authentic Chinese culture and cultural activities in the biggest Chinese holiday season. Explosions and colorful fireworks all around at mid-night of the Eve are a memorable experience. You can have fun with fireworks, try the holiday food, buy souvenirs, and experience the customs.

You may find the city of Guilin empty, because a large percentage of the city's workers go home for a traditional reunion on Chinese New Year's Eve, departing on Chinese New Year's Eve or shortly before.

However Yangshuo particularly can be crowded, usually with traffic jams in the town and roads to major attractions, especially if it is a warm New Year holiday. Attractions and main streets are colorfully decorated for the New Year, e.g. with hanging red lanterns.

February is generally a low travel month.

Winter (November to March) is the low travel season, and traveling to Guilin is easier, and it is cheaper than usual. However, the Chinese New Year period is the busiest travel time all over the country.

During that two week period, expect high rates for hotel rooms and greater difficulty obtaining flight and train tickets. An easier way to go is to let us help you get your rooms and tickets and even give you discounts.
