Guilin

Famed throughout the world for its incredible natural beauty of Karst Landscape, Guilin sits on the banks of the Li River, in the north Guangxi and the south of China. Guilin literally means 'Osmanthus Grove' and the sweet smelling osmanthus trees can be seen throughout the city.      

Guilin has an impressive history. In 111 BC, during the Han Dynasty, the Shi An County was established. This is considered to be the beginning of the city. In 507 AD the city was renamed Guizhou, which means . During the Ming Dynasty, the city started its imperial connections when a Prince Palace was built for the Emperor’s son to watch over the south of China. In the 1920’s, Guilin became a headquarters for the Northern Expeditionary Army, which was lead by Dr. Sun Yat-sen. In 1940 the city received its current name Guilin.

Guilin is a scenic town and one of the best-known tourist destinations in China. There are many scenic places within short traveling distance of Guilin. These include Longsheng with its famous Longji rice terraces; the Lijiang River, a scene of which is printed on the back of ¥20 bank notes; Yangshuo, a small county downstream from Guilin; Li River cruise, hiking, biking, caving, rafting, ballooning, earth bathing, cooking course and fantastic impression Liusanjie show and much more. This makes Guilin an excellent base for exploring the northern end of Guangxi Province.

Guilin is a beautiful city. The town center is surrounded by two rivers and four lakes and studded with sheer sided karst mountains. Outside the city center, the buildings are less well kept. The main industry in the city is tourism so the city is much cleaner than other Chinese cities.

Guilin itself is like most other medium size Chinese cities, other than that it has a large number of western-style hotels, tourists and is relatively free of air pollution. Many Chinese domestic tourists also flock to this area. What makes it special is its proximity to many picturesque limestone mountains and formations.

It is said that traveling through Guilin is like stepping into a traditional Chinese painting of mountains and rivers.
