Avid travellers have long kept Guilin and Yangshuo secret – it’s too good to share. Yet this region of China is becoming increasingly more high-profile as the rumors of beauty and tranquility circulate. It’s the perfect antidote to the frenetic big cities of China.
Located in southern China, the picturesque city of Guilin sits on the banks of the Lijang River. Quieter Yangshuo is a little farther downstream, set against a stunning backdrop of emerald limestone karsts. Both offer outstanding outdoor activities like trekking and mountain climbing and an excellent choice of small, intimate boutique hotels, as well as top-end luxury resorts.
Among the most popular activities are guided boat cruises on the river. Breathtaking scenery – including cascading waterfalls – unfolds at every bend. And you can hop off to celebrated attraction like the Reed Flute Cave and intricate stone Buddha carvings.
