Xishan Park (西山公园 "Western Hill Park") is the second-largest park in Guilin, yet it seemed virtually untouched by tourists. Even better, souvenir salesmen and paparazzi picture-sellers are nowhere to be found. For these reasons, I like Xishan even better than 7-Star Park (the largest in Guilin).

To the north and west of the park, you can climb a few mountains and follow the winding paths to see Buddhas carved in the rocks, a monument to a Soviet Colonel, interesting rock formations, and amazing views. When I got to the top of Xishan and looked west, I felt as if I were in the middle of an unending forest with karst hills as far as I could see. Looking east, I realized that I was still in Guilin. These hills take an hour or two to really explore.

Heading east, after crossing the West Lake, you can climb Yinshan (隐山, "Hidden Hill"). This mountain gives great views of the park. This hill only takes 10-15 minutes to climb.

To get there, you can take bus 14 from Jiefang road, on the north side of the Center Square, near the Liberation Bridge, and south of the Princes City. It's about a 10 minute ride from City Center. The map I have also says bus 25, 89, and 209 will get you there.
