Visit Guilin - Best of Guilin
Guilin is named after the Osmanthus trees that line the city streets and are famous for their sweet smell. It is well known for its beautiful scenery which has appeared in several movies. It is very traditionally Chinese, though this is changing as funds flow in for its development and in places Guilin can feel very modern. It is officially listed as priority for the protection of its historical and cultural heritage. For China, Guilin is a relatively small city of just under 1 million people and for visitors more used to the country's mega-cities, it has a much more relaxed laid back atmosphere.
But as it is said, best things come in small packages! Guilin has a history older than the Forbidden City and a natural beauty that memorises the visitors. Visit Guilin and explore this bewitching treat in China!
