About Guilin

Guilin's splendid landscape of mountains and water is famous throughout the whole country. Both banks of the clear and sparkling waters of the Li River are lined with strangely shaped boulders and green mountains. You can take a cruise on a bamboo raft. The scenery is absolutely sublime. Guilin’s Elephant Trunk Hill, The Two Rivers and Four Lakes Scenic Spot and Jingjiang Princes’ Palace are the primary scenic spots featuring beautiful surroundings. The Two Rivers and Four Lakes Scenic Area is also very beautiful at night. The Yangshuo section of the Li River is magnificent. There is a large amount of idyllic countryside scenery for you to enjoy. You can ride a bike or go hiking, as the area is quite suitable for both. This is one of the best places in China to go rock climbing and, as a result, it has attracted the interest of domestic and foreign tourists and travelers beyond counting. Additionally, with cascading terraces and magical caves galore, the natural area around Guilin is also very much worth discovering.

River
The essence of Guilin's landscape lies in the scenery of Li River. Dubbed as the “best landscape in the world”, Guilin has appeared widely in elementary school textbooks. The two sides of the Li River have different mountains with different shapes. Among them, the most representative ones include the Nine Horse Mountain and the Yellow Cloth Shoal. The latter is featured on the back of the new 20 RMB notes. Visiting the Li River can be done by boat or bamboo rafts. The big boat is spacious but the bamboo raft is more exotic.
