Two weeks across China: Guilin

Published March 29th, 2012

TWO AM, we just landed at the airport in Guilin. The regular bus to the city centre officially stopped several hours before. however when we exit the airport we find one bus waiting for the passengers of our flight, ready to take us into town.



Guilin is very different from beijing, the main attraction for tourists here isn’t found within the city but in the surrounding landscape shaped by karst mountains, the li river and hillside rice paddies. it’s also part of an autonomous region within china, it’s inhabitants consist for a large part not of han chinese but of different ethnic groups originating in this area.
