Tips for Visiting Guilin in October

October is one of the best months to visit Guilin because of the comfortable weather: sunny, mostly dry days with cool evenings and clear sky. The noisy Chinese tour groups are gone after the first week (consider avoiding National Day holiday), and you will see few people on tourist attractions, as Guilin's low travel season begins.

Avoid visiting during National Day holiday from October 1 to 7 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.
