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.

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.

Trip Moments

On the side of the road, I found a van and drove to the Lijiang River, just to see the most essential part of the Lijiang River. but! ! ! As a perennial walk in the Quartet, I have seen countless pits and abductions, see the baby of the move! Actually, I dont want to be in the tourist attraction of Greater China! ! ! Its still hard to be fooled! ! ! My heart is cold. I came to the Lijiang River in this elite section. I wanted to buy a ticket to see the 20-dollar background map. Although it has been smashed by the big photographers, it is good that he also went to the RMB, right? Then prove that it is really really beautiful, right? But, get off the bus all the way to find tickets, there are many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many oxen to pull you, say take you to sit Bamboo raft, take you to see the most elite section of the Lijiang River. I want to buy a ticket or a big ship. Its better to experience the unique sights here. Isnt it VIP enjoyment? ? However, the nightmare begins here.
First of all, take us by boat and cross the river, saying that the bamboo poles are parked at the other end. OK, I honestly crossed the river. After I finished the river, I found that I didn't see the bamboo poles. This is the old aunt who started picking up the phone and started to call. The idea is to pick us up. I was wondering at the time, thinking that there would be a car connection. After waiting for almost ten minutes, the car came stunned and it was the open-top tricycle! ! it is good! ! If you don't talk about getting on the bus, you will continue to determine whether there will be nine scenic spots along the way. Is there not a lot of attractions? The answer given by Auntie is certain and certain. Never imagined! !
This section of the aunt said very close, but the result went a long way, when sitting in the car, we found that we are still lucky, at least. . . We also have open-top tricycles, and those who are walking with their shoes are always in a good sense of superiority. It is the right choice not to mention the money early!
Well, I finally saw our bamboo poles, I thought about it, then let's go, who told us to enjoy the VIP treatment. But what I didn't expect was that it was only the beginning of a nightmare. It was not the waterway that looked at the 20-yuan background. It was completely another waterway. root! this! Look! Do not! To! Separate! wall! of! 20! yuan! Back! view! Figure! ! Oh, mygod!
Ask the master of the boat to get a 20 yuan background map, the master is very calm to answer the side of the mountain, I said not to say good to see those attractions? "Yeah, right on the side of the mountain, you see it." What the logic of the ghost. . .
After going through the pit, the mood of playing is not there at all. The boat that has been said to have been at least half an hour has become a 20-minute hurried end, that is, a section of the river is running down, stopping to let you I took a few photos and returned. . .
also encountered an old man who refused to take pictures without giving money. . . Hey. . .
So everyone still chooses a regular cruise, go to the regular ticket office to buy a regular ticket, don't follow others for the convenience of the map, and the last money and time are gone. . . .
