There is a saying amongst the people of China: “Guilin’s scenery is the best among all under heaven.” Widely regarded to be China’s most picturesque city, Guilin is located in the country’s south and is renowned for its natural beauty with two rivers – including the serene Li River – and four lakes surrounding the town centre and unique karst mountains decorating the landscape, making it one of China’s most popular tourist destinations. A Li River cruise is the best way to embrace the picturesque backdrop’s many attractions, including the majestic Elephant Trunk Hill, and runs from Guilin to Yangshuo County, where visitors can experience local, traditional Chinese dishes such as the famed Guilin rice noodles or the popular Yangshuo beer fish. For those lucky enough to visit, Guilin is certain to leave a lasting impression.
