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.
