Why Go To Guilin

GuilinIt is by no means necessary to make additional acclaim to Guilin--the attractions here speak for themselves. Asked which of China's natural scenery is the best to visit, a vast majority of mainlander's are sure to point to the beautiful karst scenery of the Guilin area, as the ancient Chinese saying goes: Guilin's attractions top China.

Within the city itself there are a wealth of good sights to be seen, and a little geographic tour here should guide you. Parallel to the Lijiang River runs Zhongshan Road, Guilin's main street. In the middle of the city on both sides of the road are the Banyan and Fir Lakes respectively, each beautiful parks in their own right. To the north stands Solitary Beauty Peak, Guilin's most prominent karst peak while along the Lijiang River are two more peaks, Wave Subduing Hill and Elephant Trunk Hill, each proudly showing off Guilin's unique scenery. Elsewhere in the city is the immense Seven Star Park with seven peaks and six caves as well as pavilions and gardens to enjoy. Lastly, on the northwestern outskirts of town is Reed Flute Cave, one of this area's most wonderful underground sights.

Of course few people coming to Guilin will skip a visit to the Lijiang River which bends all around this region curving around the many karst peaks. Withstanding the exorbitant cost, thousands of people still take the Lijiang Tour, during which you can see a plethora of these beautiful yet strange hills as you glide your way down- or up- stream. Many head for the popular little town of Yangshuo. If you are interested by ancient Chinese history, the Ling Canal is also definitely a place not to miss, for it was constructed under orders from the first emperor of China. However, this is only for the enthusiasts being a good 70km from the city.

Yangshuo, in the past few years, has become the ultimate haven for tired backpackers, with its picturesque Fuli Village, Green Lotus Peak and Moon Hill.

Yunnan is a perfect showpiece of China's many natural wonders, rugged, wild, and unspoiled. The province is famed for its multitude of ethnic groups, of China's fifty-five officially recognized ethnic minorities, twenty-five can be found in Yunnan. Here visitors could find snow-capped mountains, mysterious deep valleys, peaceful highland lakes, magnificent Karst hills, tropical rainforests, and torrential rivers.

As the capital of China, Beijing is the political, cultural, and intellectual center of the country. Beijing has so much to offer travelers. The celebrated tourist center is filled with historical highlights, the most well known ones are: Great Wall, Forbidden City, Summer Palace, Temple of Heaven, Ming Tombs...

Everest - the world's highest peak is located in Tibet. Tibet offers fabulous things to see, including unique Buddhist monastery, breathtaking high-altitude lakes, stunning views of the snow mountains and brilliant Tibetan culture.
