Yeah, I'm a little disappointed that we didn't see any pandas while in China. That alone is a reason to go back!
The second part of our journey in China took us down to the city of Guilin in the Guangxi Province. Guilin is northwest of Hong Kong and about the same distance northeast of Vietnam. We suggest you experience the following sights.
Sun & Moon Pagodas
After the caves we checked into our fabulous hotel, the Guilin Yi Royal Palace, in Guilin's botanical garden. Just beautiful. Click the link to see it yourself.
Two Rivers and Four Lakes Night cruise is a 90 minute cruise on the waters that run through Guilin for only 120 Yuan per person. These twin pagodas light up the lake and serve as beacons calling guests to enjoy the calming effects of the water surrounding them.
Don't miss this opportunity to see one of the most scenic areas of China along the Li River. This poetic landscape appears in paintings by great artists near and far. The Karst formations reach up from the blue waters to the blue skies. Truly breathtaking.
Goodbye to Guilin
With the rice terraces in our rearview mirror, we head back down towards Guilin to catch our flight to Shanghai. Until next time.
