    I’ve traveled to 78 different countries, and this was one of the most amazing vistas I have ever seen. Probably in my top 5 coolest places on earth. If you are even remotely close by, do yourself a favor and go.

    Went with our driver for the day who is also a guide and took us to the cave w/o many other people being there, Really great to see this place almost deserted and the illuminations / reflections were a great sight. Also a nice drive to the caves with rice fields and scenery.

    This is an amzing site to see. We went when the colour of the rice was changing from green to yellow , absolutely beautiful . There is a cable car to go up the hill but the climb is not to serious . If you are pressed for time take the cable car up and down otherwise enjoy the views and walk through the rice terraces.

    We spent five days in Yangshuo and wanted to explore the area. Amy was recommended to me by friends in China as a great hiking guide to tour Yangshuo, the river Li, its surrounding villages and beautiful mountains. She speaks English and is a fun and charming lady from Yangshuo. We had a great day out walking, took great pictures, and managed to avoid the crowds thanks to Amy's local knowledge. Her email is yangshuolianfengamy@aliyun.com and her wechat is linfengamy - I highly recommend a hike with Amy.

    Very difficult climb in the heat. Humid and hot. All shaded climbing, but very humid of course. One lovely local farm lady who was 65 made the climb with our family, fanning us at times, and giviing us correct estimations on timelines up the hill. She offered cold drinks at the top of the hill for reasonable prices. After a solid hike we were happy to support her efforts and camaraderie. Fantastic views at the top...just behind the moon. Worth it...but be prepared for the hike. My 6 year old loved it...saw it as a challenge. You can do it!

    During my visit to Beihai Silver Beach, the breeze off the ocean was light, the sunshine bright, and few people were around. The 26-kilometre waterfront beach is very crowded in the summer months but much fewer come in the winter months. The beach sand was fairly brown during my visit. I was told that under the summer sunlight the quartz sand takes on a silver colour. At about the mid-point of Silver Beach, there is a pier called the Immortal Bridge. Its name relates to a legend of a Japanese monk. Due to the relatively warm waters, swimmers are usually in the waters from April through November. Even on my January visit, there were a few sunbathers on the beach.

    We walked here when visiting the rice terraces. Very interesting to wander around and get a feel for life here. Lots of photo opportunities. Some places are looking very closed but some are open and welcoming. We had a drink in a cafe with a great view and the people were very friendly.

    Great place to relax and enjoy - we had a full day trip to Weizhou Island and did like the cleanliness of the island, the vegetation and the well organized entire environment - when we came in the beginning of June, somehow limited tourists (still the ferry was fully booked) joined however in peak seasons it might get overrun

    The Silver Cave is the largest karst cave in Guilin. The cave requires a bit of imagination to enjoy the experience. Before you enter the cave, you will be given an audio electronic recorder and earpiece that will alert you of each landmark when you enter the cave. There are both English and Chinese audio electronic guides. These recorder will be collected at the end of the trail. You will need to pay a fine if you lose it so do take care of it. Once you enter the cave, you will walk past various checkpoints. There is only 1 route so you will not get lost. The whole route is around 1 hour to 1.5 hours depending on your pace and times you stop to take photo. You can factor around 2 hours including the shopping time outside the cave. Each checkpoint will ask you to look up, left or right at a formation. You need a bit of imagination, as the recorder will claim that the structure is the shape of a religious monument, mythical being or an animal. To enjoy the experience, you need to forget you are an adult and visualise it like how a kid will to enjoy the experience. Otherwise you will be bored quickly. Along the way, there are photographers who will take free shots of you that will then be charged if you like to buy the photos later. At the end of the trail, you will also visit a row of shops selling Buddhist symbols, herbs or local Guilin products. There will also be salesmen trying to convince you to buy photos with frames that they will charge a premium for. It is a highly commercial experience but entertaining if you imagine the structures like how a kid will.

    One more note is that you need to take good care of your health during winter. I went there in December at 9 degrees in the morning. It is cold outside during winter but warm in the cave. If you take off your jacket during the visit, do put in on before you leave the cave. This is to avoid catching a cold while you loosely dressed and sweating in the cave.

    Guilin was a unique experience my wife and I both enjoyed and still talk about months later. We walked the district examined a traditional pagoda style building commemorating the city during the day. After dinner we had a relaxing walk through the park amid the trees and ponds. It can be romantic. Food is always plentiful and high quality.
