guilin Travel Guide :

Guilin

Understand

It has become more of a new residential construction area and small manufacturing area then a tourist spot, over the past few years, except for the river and city-moat/artificial lake area in the center of town. Apparently it was a strong communist stronghold during the revolution and even had more residents back then, but recently the population may have increased. There are/were a few non-Han cultural groups in this area at one time.

There are daily flights to Guilin from Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Macau, Bangkok, Hangzhou, Chengdu, Chongqing, Kunming, etc.

There are trains from North (Changsha, Wuhan, Shanghai), West (Kunming), South (Liuzhou, Nanning, Zhanjiang), and East (Guangzhou, Shenzhen).

Guilin

There are some expressways locally and in the province, but to any distance it is a 2 lane road.

By bus

There are buses to and from Yangshuo, many other local areas, Guangzhou, Kunming, and many others. I have heard there is a direct bus from Zhuhai, on the border with Macau. The bus station is just a few blocks north of the train station, same side of street.

Get around

Guilin

See

Guilin itself is like most other medium size Chinese cities, other than it has a large amount of western-style hotels and tourists. Many Chinese domestic tourists also flock to this area. What makes it special is its proximity to many picturesque limestone mountains and formations.

Most travellers to this area will take a river trip down the Li River on tourboats. These boats are frequent and easily organised by any hotel in Guilin. Most will go from Guilin to Yangshuo (a very picturesque village downstream). The river winds through some truly spectacular limestone formations and a slow boat trip there and back (with a stop in Yangshuo) will take a whole day.

Guilin

Do

Getting a local map from a tourist guide or shop is a good idea. Many city parks and river spots can be accessed easily by bus. There are limestone caves and even a Buddhist temple and bulk-banana storage site in caves near 7 star park if you know how to find them. Many peaks have trails to the top or to a hole or cave-like spot. There are many good restaurants and some art shops.

Stay safe

  • Watch your pockets in the central city.
  • Also, be careful with the begger children in the city parks as there are rumours of them claming assult if you do not buy the flowers from them. The parents apparently act as "witnesses" the assult.

Get out

It is well worth heading straight out of Guilin as soon as you arrive, and staying in the much friendlier and more picturesque town of Yangshuo.

Taxis can easily be hired from the airport that will take you straight there (around 90 mins drive depending on traffic), or if you arrive in Guilin by train you can take a taxi from there, or go across to the buses across the square from the station's main entrance. The bus fare should be around Y10 per person. There are also boats going to Yangshou.
