The best things to do in Guilin’s autumn include:
October is the last month of the high travel season. However, October 1 to 7 is the National Day holiday in China, when hotel rates and tour prices are considerably higher than usual.
Avoid visiting during this period and for several days before and after, or get the help of people in the know like us to help you to avoid the hassles. Otherwise, frustrations like waiting 2 hours at Longji’s gate are probable.
It is not all the month that you can see the rice terraces in their golden glory. The rice is usually harvested sometime in the month. Harvest time differs each year, and only the locals know the time. Our guides who spend half of their time each month in the area know the most up-to-date information.
