Three Best Things to Do in Guilin

If you ask me the top reasons why I travel Guilin, I’ll answer you for the Rice Noodle (Mifen) without any doubt (I am crazy for Chinese local cuisine.)

Actually, Guilin, sitting in northeastern Guangxi, boasts enchanting natural views that have often described as “the best in the world” since ancient times. No matter what your travel style is, you can find enlightenment in the picturesque limestone mountains, quiet rivers and peaceful villages.

  • Cruising along Li River
  • Cycling around Yangshuo Countryside

Top One: Cruise along Li River

Savoring Guilin’s beauty can perhaps best be enjoyed on a bamboo raft ride on the Lijiang River, which meanders leisurely around the oddly shaped karst mountains and caves.

Top Three: Hike in Longji Rice Terrace

After the trip in Guilin and Yangshuo, if time permits, drop by the magnificent Longji Terrace Land, a three-hour drive from Guilin. Overlooking mountain tops, the terraced paddy fields have inspired artists for centuries as mountain peaks often look as though they are peeking out from the clouds.
