    I stopped here on my way to Guilin to play golf. It was a Monday afternoon and there was not much business at that time. There was no line to ride on the bamboo rafts. The raft ride was about 40 minutes and cost 180 RMB. There were lots of people there selling trinkets. There were some small restaurants overall a nice distraction for two hours time.

    Very difficult climb in the heat. Humid and hot. All shaded climbing, but very humid of course. One lovely local farm lady who was 65 made the climb with our family, fanning us at times, and giviing us correct estimations on timelines up the hill. She offered cold drinks at the top of the hill for reasonable prices. After a solid hike we were happy to support her efforts and camaraderie. Fantastic views at the top...just behind the moon. Worth it...but be prepared for the hike. My 6 year old loved it...saw it as a challenge. You can do it!

    This is a must-go place with astonishing views and a reasonable 10 minute hike. Not very expensive, high quality stairs. Very safe.

    This place was simply amazing! The views are fantastic and you won’t regret visiting Silver Cave. If the weather is unbearable outside and if you have two small children aged 3 and under, you might want to rethink a trip hear or else it might be memorable for the wrong reasons. It’s cooler than outside but it’s still hot. There’s a lot of climbing and parents know children tire easily so you must carry them. Strollers are out of the question. It is very slippery. I have mixed feelings still but I can’t blame my parent woes on the attraction. If you have help, bring them to help you with kids. If you have older kids, just bring snacks.

    I’ve traveled to 78 different countries, and this was one of the most amazing vistas I have ever seen. Probably in my top 5 coolest places on earth. If you are even remotely close by, do yourself a favor and go.

    An Ordinary ancient town, food here is overpriced, especially after the Re-open of China tourism. But I’m lucky enough to meet these local Zhuang and Miao People to celebrate their traditional holiday. Order a beer in this Bar and support the local business.

    We had just finished enjoying an attraction and were walking around and noticed some people taking pictures. We looked around and then noticed why they were doing so. The background was amazingly beautiful and so we snapped some pics. I asked about the place and they said it was Fuli Bridge and then I remembered the attraction on the list of things to do I had written down from TA. It is well worth the stop if you’re in the area.

    We watched the Dance Show at Guilin Romance Park and it was really amazing. The visuals were just stunning! I also loved the fact that the show really takes advantage of the whole arena, at times you end up turning around or looking up for some of the experiences. Highly recommend!

    Chinese parks get a lot of use. Watch people playing cards, singing karaoke, dancing, generally having fun

    Thsi was absolutely a highlight of our visit. We did this with scooters and it was amazing. The views are spectacular and you can take awesome photos at so many places as you can stop anywhere you want to. This is defnitely a must do when visiting Yangshou!

    Butterfly Spring appears a bit tacky from the outside but the underground well lit caves are a beauty to go through. Some comment on it being a tourist trap - and in a way they are right - it is a tourist attraction and like all in every part of the world are designed to part you from extra money - but this is a gem to be seen and well worth the effort and is not far from Guilin. I loved it and I was a solo New Zealander with no Chinese language, and still found it worth the effort. Why else go to China if no to immerse and experience.s e

    Many people took the bamboo raft ride here as it includes a return ride. The bridge is lovely and this place is very busy. If one starts the bamboo raft ride from Jinlong Bridge slightly further up, the ride is only one way for 1.5 hours and it costs 255 yuan for two people.
