Guilin for a weekend in December

We want to visit Guilin over weekend of 8th December. We have a package we can book from Hong Kong but want to make sure we get the best out of our weekend - it needs tobe relxing as well as see the area

So we are thinking it will be cold but not freezing - is this correct?

So will the weather will be ok for seeing the scenery?

We will stay in guilin and explore from there so we don't spend a lot of time travelling - should be go the extra distance and stay in Yangshuo?

We want to spnd about $500 - $600 HK dollars or RMB a night on accommodation - where is the best location in each place

- Guilin?

Any unmissable sights?

Will the boat tours from guilin on Li river?

Thanks very much for your help


and Yangshuo?

Look on Weather Underground (Guilin) for historical weather data: wunderground.com/global/stations/57957.html

I would prefer to stay in Yangshuo. Li River Retreat (http://www.li-river-retreat.com) would be a good choice.

Look on http://www.yangers.com for more excellent information about this area.

Hello, Jenny,

It is cold but is ok to see the natural landscape without too many tour groups, usually it is sunny days at that time.

Regarding the hotel of Guilin, Guilin Bravo Hotel has good location near lakes, 10 minutes walking distance to downtown.

On the sights of Guilin: Yao Mountain, by cable car to the top to the panoramic view of countryside, Elephant Hill, the symbol of Guilin, Reed Flute Cave, the art of palace, Seven Star Park, the biggest comprehensive park in Guilin.

Li Rive Cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo, however as the water is low so you just can do li river cruise for around one and half hour in Yangdi Sections.

The nice hotel in Yangshuo are Paradise Hotel, Magnolia Hotel, Regency Hotel, all of above hotels have good location near West Street.

To do in Yangshuo: Village tour, Yulong River or do bamboo boat rafting in Yulong River, visit Dragon Bridge, Fuli old Bridge, Moon Hill, explore Water Cave if you like adveture. Liu Sanjie Light and Sound Show, Xingping and Fuli old town tour, Cormarant Fishing. you can visit www.guilinprivatetours.com for more info. Hot air balloon.
