The green karst hills and the reflections in the water are stunning. If you love hiking and cycling, you could discover the unknown beauty of the Li River. You can take a cruise boat or a bamboo raft along the river.
- Yulong River & Yulong Valley
Situated in Yangshuo Countryside, Yulong River Valley has the scenery as amazing as that along the Li River. It is a combination of the nature, local life and farmland. Along the road in the area, you will find locals doing the daily life by the river or in the farmland.
The Reed Flute Cave enjoys a good reputation among foreign tourists for its charming stalactites in different shapes and its location which is some 6 kilometers from the center of Guilin City. In addition, Bus 3 will take you directly to the parking lot of the cave.
Li River Cruise
The Four Lakes Night Cruise offers a great chance to appreciate the attractive night views in Guilin. On the cruise boat, you could not only enjoy the views in the colorful lights but also can admire the live classic Chinese music and dancing and get a little acquainted with the old culture of cormorant fishing in Guilin.
Bordering Zhengyang Walking Street, the Shangshui Snack Street is a retreat for tourists who enjoy trying local food in a new place. The street offers Thai, Indian, and Western Food as well. Sometimes, the roasted insects are for sale on the streets.
Yao Mountain could be listed in the best sights in Guilin for its different appearances in the four seasons and the gorgeous views from the top of the mountain. There is also a trail on the mountain leading you to the top if you wouldn’t like to take a chairlift uphill.
Featuring the stunning sunrise, Xianggong Hill is also popular among tourists. On the very early morning of fine days, the orange sun rises slowly from the sea of clouds and finally climbs up. The views around the hill are beautiful as well.
Longji Rice Terraces
West Street is home to a variety of restaurants, hotels, boutiques, local handicrafts shops, and bars. It is a good place to refresh yourself after a long journey. If you could speak a little Mandarin, you could practice your bargaining skills with the owners of some shops on the street.
From spring to autumn, Cuiping Hill features different types of natural beauty. The green farmland around and the karst hills in the distance and the sunset make for a gorgeous picture.
Featuring the 2-kilometers-long section of the Li River as the stage, the Impression 3rd Sister Liu Show presents local culture with the beauty of the river. The music is shocking while the background of the show is 12 karst hills in the Li River.
The Longji Rice Terraces are composed of Longji Zhuang Rice Terraces, Ping’an Zhuang Rice Terraces and Jinkeng Rice Terraces. The natural views in Ping’an and Jinkeng Rice Terraces are more gorgeous than those in Longji Zhuang Rice Terraces. However, if you would like to explore local life and culture, the Longji Zhuang Rice Terraces is the best one.
