Weather in Guilin and Yangshuo

by pkfong

Hi, I will be visiting Guilin and Yangshuo in June 8th 2009, for a week. I have checked the weather forecast and it seems that it will be really hot and humid. Is it going to be too hot to move around at 33 Celsious? Alternatively, how accurate is the weather forecast? Thank you.

Well it depends on what you're used to. At the moment it isn't too humid - gets worse by about August.

If you're by the river, it will be a little cooler. That's where most things are anyway, or in underground caves.

Travel Tips for Guilin

Night Market

by solopes

Half of the main street, in central Guilin, is closed each night for the night market.

For several hundred meters, three row of stalls sell all kind of crafts, for locals and tourists.

Next morning the traffic flows normally, without signs of the crowds and huge deals of... a few hours before.

Gudong National Park - Liu Sanjie's Village

by yipsufen

Gudong National Park is kind of like forest reserves for the mainland China. In addition, this national park has many sites and attractions which try to carry "Save Our Planet" message. Target audience are mostly the young school children and university students. Along the way up you will notice many sculptures, art formation or plants with special messages erected. There's even some environmental poems carved on the steps or plagues. Many of the plants here are clearly labeled.

As soon as you board a bamboo raft at a wharf, you will see some minority girls catching fish, singing by the riverside or even the famous Liu Sanjie coming out from her house, waving and singing at you. The singing is melodious through loud-speaker. Her house is so genuine with some clothes hanging for drying and some dried crops.

Don't be surprised to see some school boys splashing water in their bamboo raft. This is part of their custom. Other than taking the bamboo raft, you can also take a horse ride.

Entrance fee: RMB60

Li river trip

by bluedook

A river trip is a must. Although there are lots of boats and it is fairly touristy the scenery is out of this world. Watching the rolling hills pass by especially if there is a little mist is a wonderful sight and makes you click away with the camera. Unfortunately the pictures never do the view justice.

Climbing to hill tops in downtown Guilin

by SLLiew

There are several famous hill tops in downtown Guilin to climb.

The views are simply fantastic as you climb higher and the exercise is great. You will see the river, the town, the fields and the mountains surrounding everything else.

Jingjiang Princes City

by Willettsworld

The city is magnificent and grandly walled, and once functioned as an 'inner city' occupied by the princes and their families. Construction began from the fifth year of Hong Wu (1372 AD), who founded the Ming Dynasty. Zhao Gou, who later became Emperor Gaozong of the Southern Song Dynasty and Emperor Shun of the Yuan Dynasty all had lived here before they were enthroned. In the period of the Republic of China, Dr. Sun Yat-sen once headquartered here for his North Expedition.

There are 4 halls, 4 pavilions and 40 other constructions surrounding the main buildings. It occupies a total area of 198,700 m². Duxiu Feng (Solitary Beauty Peak), said to be the king of Guilin peaks, stands in the royal garden and is possible to climb.

The layout of the city strictly conforms to the rules of the Ming Dynasty. All buildings are arranged on the axis anchored by the Duxiu Peak in the order of, from the south, Duanli Gate (Entrance Gate), Chengyun Gate (Palace Gate), Chengyun Palace (Administration Building), Royal Quarters, Imperial Garden and Guangzhi Gate (Rear Gate). The subsidiary buildings on both sides of the axis are symmetrical. More photos can be found in one of my travelogues.

Open: 8am-6pm. Admission: RMB50.
