Guilin, China

Guilin
The riverside karst landscape around Guilin has long made it a favorite with Chinese poets, photographers, and travelers.
Plan my Guilin trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Hong Kong to Guilin is an approximately 5-hour train ride. You can also take a train; or fly; or drive. Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from Hong Kong in September since evenings lows in Guilin dip to 26°C. On the 12th (Thu), you're off to Chengdu.

Hibiscus City

The home of giant pandas for more than two million years, Chengdu's vast human history cowers in comparison to the natural heritage of the area.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Dujiangyan Irrigation System and Baoguang Temple of Chengdu. Visit Jiezi Ancient Town and Chengdu Culture Park for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Chengdu: Guanghan Sanxingdui Museum (in Guanghan), Panda Valley (in Dujiangyan) and Mt. Tiantai Scenic Resort in Qionglai (in Qionglai). Next up on the itinerary: look for all kinds of wild species at Giant Panda Breeding Research Base (Xiongmao Jidi) and see the interesting displays at Chengdu Museum (Old Hall).
