Even traffic barriers have an artistic flair here

Larger cities have metro lines & are fareasier to navigate than bussin...


Don’ do what in the caves?



Like other sites we visited, even the tickets are lovely.

This sidewalk sculpture was a happy surprise




They are awefully keen on colouful lighting

The Ancient South Gate is a remnant of the old walled city




Guilin is a large city, but as we were using it as a transit point in/out of Yangshou we never ventured far from the

Central lakes, which were right out our door.

Two beautiful pagodas are the focal point for lakeside strolls, and that pleasant walk was right out our door. We looped the multiple lakes once in the daylight and then again at night. The other attractions in Guilin, besides the caves and landscape, were parks at the base of the hills - requiring an entrye fee and a charge to climb to the summit. We took a pass on those, having hiked to a small pagodo above Yongfu Cave when we visited it.

For Guilin we had used to reserve at the Guilin Lakeside Inn, chosen for its central location. In actuality, we had rented one of just three sparse rooms above a small bar (so, not an inn at all). It was a solid trade-off given the reviews about the great host proved true. Not only was he fluent in English, he was a super travel advisor.
