Travel content

Guilin and Yangshuo have captured the imaginations of poets, artists and travelers for centuries. Tourists to the area continue the Chinese love for cultural travel and the national obsession for tracing the footsteps of well cultured sojourners of the past. As well as taking in the key highlights of the Li River and her karst mountains, we also get to some out of the way spots to uncover some hidden gems. Stop for a local home-cooked meal to really get a taste of this captivating part of China which is undoubtedly best seen on two wheels to reach places that coach tours could never get to. Let Guilin and Yangshuo inspire the poet and artist in you and you never know, you may even discover new and hidden talents.
