Plan to go to Guilin on next Monday. How am I going to withdraw money using my foreign HSBC Bank ATM card in Guilin since there is no HSBC branch in Guilin?


by pgthompson

Your card will be either Visa or Mastercard and therefore you will be able to withdraw from any ATM that shows either symbol. Let your bank know that you will be withdrawing cash abroad before you leave.

Travel Tips for Guilin

Red Juicy Watermelon - Fruit in Guilin (3)

by myspices

You can get these slices of juicy watermelon from the make-shift stalls along the road. Vendors will just sliced the huge watermelon into slices and display them on the table. Take your pick - each piece costs RMB1. Some of the watermelon are seedless and most of them are sweet in taste.

See another vendor selling slices of watermelon - attached pic

Crystal Bridge

by solopes

I wrote in my Tacoma page about the disappointment that was my visit to its glass bridge, by Chihuli. Maybe because of it (and because I couldn’t read any special reference to this one, in Guilin), I didn’t approach the Crystal Bridge in Banyan Lake. Maybe glass, maybe plastic, maybe both, it surely stands closer to what I was expecting from a so called glass or crystal bridge than the American one. And the effects, at night, have a beauty that my poor camera could catch. But Banu was in the group, and, with her permission, I’ll join her version, in the reader’s profit.

Boating on the Li River

by alsonamedbort1

I traveled to Guilin which was just okay. It is a big city with many tourist attractions. But if you want to get past that, take a minibus (10 yuen) to Yangshuo, and hire a small boat on the Li River. You can bargain for the price. I went during a national holiday so the prices were all higher, but was able to bargain down to 45 yuen per person for a 1.5 hour boat ride. It was amazing! Not touristy, superficial, but simply an enjoyment of natural scenery. It is a must-see!

You can rent a bike anywhere on the streets, take it on the boat, and then bike back to yangshuo. It takes about 3 hours total (boating and biking), but you can adjust the time as you wish.

Zengpiyan Cave

by xiquinho

This cave is also inside the city, but is less developed and more natural than the Seven Star caves. It is also one of China's oldest historic sites. Scientific dating techniques have established that tools and bone fragments found in this cave are ten thousand years old.

It all becomes clear

by easyoar

After being with the fishermen for a few minutes (all of the other tourists had gone already), I suddenly understood why the Cormorants don't eat the fish!

It is very simple, but not especially nice for the birds! A piece of some sort of wire is attached around the base of th neck.

Not tight enough to stop it breathing, but restrictive enough that the bird cannot swallow any fishes it catches. It is therefore obliged to swim back to the fisherman to have the fish removed.

This picture shows a bird with just such a wire attached. You may need to enlarge the photo...
