What are the 10 Best Things To Do In Guilin In February?
For visitors traveling to Guilin in February, be prepared as it’s one of the coldest months to visit! However, rainfall is also usually minimal. We recommend avoiding visiting during the Spring Festival (typically during February although it varies according to the Lunar Calendar). There are several things to do and attractions to visit in Guilin for visitors traveling in February.
The Li River and Li River Cruise is available to be explored throughout the year. In February, the water level is lower than previous months. However, the natural landscape along the river is still a feast for eyes. The cruise along the Li River will take you to Nine Horse Fresco Hill, Yellow Cloth Reflection, the natural mural of the Carp on the Wall and much more.
The Four Lakes Night Cruise in the City of Guilin takes you to get a little acquainted with the local culture. On the cruise, you will be amazed at the charm of the views along the lakes. You could take the cruise on any weather conditions. During clear weather, you will also enjoy the cormorant fishing demonstration on one of the lakes.
In any season, the Reed Flute Cave is good for travelling. It is not affected by the weather. The crystal clear stalactites in different shapes in the colorful lights become more stunning. Generally speaking, it takes around 1 hour to explore the entire opened section in the cave.
In February, there are fewer tourists to visit the Yulong River as it is cold there. However, the natural landscape along the Yulong River is still attractive since most of the trees on the hills are evergreen. As fewer tourists enjoy the bamboo rafting on the river, the river is quite quiet and you will attain a more unforgettable rafting experience.
The Impression 3rd Sister Liu Show enjoys a good reputation among visitors all the time. It is back-dropped by 12 karst hills in the Li River. In addition, the stage is on the river. Through the show, you will know some about the local farming culture and appreciate folk songs of Zhuang People. Please note, the show is always closed for one month prior to the Spring Festival in China. It is always reopened to the public from the 3rd of January (according to the Lunar Calendar).
