Top Five Restaurants in Guilin

2010-07-19 | Life in Guilin | Comments(3) |   Views:(1043)

Top Five Restaurants in Guilin 5. C++Address: No. 26, Lijiang Road (Building No. 1, behind the Nancheng Department Store)This strictly speaking is not a restaurant because it doesn't sell food, but is one of the most amazing places you could visit in Guilin. The owner from Taiwan has perfected the art of making drinks and deserts; he personally makes all the drinks himself not using powder but hand-making everything personally. Despite its small, hard-to-find location it's always packed and has earned a reputation. Though the drinks there are noticeably more expensive than your average caf (10-15 Yuan) they are more than worth it. Everything there is amazing, but particularly the green tea milk-shake and the mango pudding, defiantly worth a try....

2010-07-06 | Life in Guilin | Comments(2) |   Views:(1482)

 

There's undoubtedly A LOT to do around Guilin, one activity I may suggest for those of you who have seen your fair share of mountains and gardens is white-water rafting, or as the Chinese weirdly translate it  'driftage'. There are several white water sites spread throughout Guilin and its 12 satellite cities but the one that is generally regarded as being the most worthwhile is located in the tourist centre of Yangshuo, Long Jing He (龙颈河).

Xing An of Guilin: A trip back in time With three days holiday I needed something do, so harnessing my adventurous spirit I decided to visit one of the twelve counties that surround Guilin. Guilin is such a perfect base for extended travel purely due to the fact that there are so many amazing locations to visit within relatively close proximity, all of which have amazing scenery and unique characteristics, it offers visitors to Guilin to experience a new town every day. Upon arriving at the bus-station it was clear that a combination of heavy rain and bus departure times that the most convenient destination would be the Northern county of Xing An. ...

2010-04-30 | Life in Guilin | Comments(0) |   Views:(1052)

It must be one of the few restaurants with the best environment in Guilin. I had dinner with my friends in Haochibao Restaurant (好吃堡) of Guilin last week. And we enjoyed both the food and environment there very much.

Guilin Haochibao Restaurant is inside the Liangjiang Theater, only 100 meters from the dreamlike Two Rivers and Four Lakes spot and 50 meters from the Zhengyang Walking Street. So you can both enjoy delicious food and beautiful water sceneries of Guilin at the same time. There are seats beside the window for sightseeing in Haochibao Restaurant and you can book them in advance, which is also the highlight of the restaurant.

Lingering in Daxu Ancient Town If you think Guilin scenery is more natural, no more cultural or historical, there is a place which you must see. It is Daxu Ancient Town, which is located to the southwest of Guilin, on shore of the Li River. It takes about 40 minuets by driving from Guilin. So, many Guilin citizens like to diver car to enjoy weekend in this area. In the mean time, Daxu town now is a big town in Guilin area, and its market is very famous, many people just go to Daxu town on purpose during market time. But it is a little hard for me to count the date, as the market date is based on Chinese lunar calendar. P.S.: In Chinese, Xu means local market, so, Daxu means big local market, very cute name for the ancient town....
