Why Guilin and Yangshuo?
Guilin is one of the best-known tourist destinations in China. There are many scenic places within short travelling distance such as Longji’s spectacular Dragon Backbone Rice Terraces; the Li River, (a scene of which is printed on the back of ¥20 bank notes) meanders it way 80 kilometres southwards to Yangshuo. The Li River cruise lasting 4 hours is a very popular tourist excursion and rightly so as the views of the surrounding countryside are beautiful. Yangshuo is popular among tourists for its karst peaks, rivers, caves, and temples as well as its laid back cafe’s and bars. It is easy to spend at least 2 or 3 days exploring all that Yangshuo has to offer.
