Trip Notes

1. About the Rural Market Near Daxu

There is a rural market every two days near Daxu ancient town. If you are interested in visiting the market and seeing how local farmers do their purchases, ask your guide to arrange for a stop at the market on the way to Daxu.

Your guide will be happy to go the extra mile and help you, if your travel dates happen to coincide with rural market dates.

2. About the overnight stay in Longji Rice Terraces

Please take a small bag or backpack for your overnight stay on the mountain village. Your guide will assist you with storing your big suitcase in your hotel in Guilin.

3. How the Weather Affects the Scenery and What to Bring

It is rainy and wet during Guilin's rainy season, from April to July. But the mists during this period make Guilin mysterious. It might rain or be misty (obscuring some of the view), but even then the scenery is beautiful.

If you are traveling between April and July, a pair of comfortable waterproof walking shoes is a must.
