When it comes to Guilin and its stunning topography, there's good news and bad news. The good news is the beauty of this scenic city, celebrated for generations by poets and painters, more than lives up to its lofty reputation. The bad news is that rapid economic growth and a booming tourist trade have made it a bit challenging to enjoy Guilin's charms. That being said, we simply fell in love with Guilin and neighboring Yangshuo. Guilin may be a modern city with several million inhabitants, but spending time along the Li River and within Guilin's many parks, you feel as though you've found heaven and the hustle and bustle of the city is a million miles away.
