Guilin China

Guilin got its name from the large number of fragrant Sweet Osmanthus trees located in the city, Guilin basically translates to “forest of Sweet Osmanthus”. We only spent the 1 day in Guilin as most people use it as a travel hub to tour from to see the surrounding areas but we’d had already done our touring along the way. As we allowed 2-3 days in Guilin we wished we had stay 1 or 2 days longer in Yangshuo or PingAn/Longji.


Sun and Moon Twin Pagodas on Shan Lake which are beautifully illuminated at night and the highlight of the stroll around Guilin’s lakes.
