Amazing time in Guilin
Amazing! It is hard to find words to discribe this wonderful place in Guanxi Province. We spent 2 nights in Guilin. From there we visited the Longhsen rice terasses. On the way back we had a fun rafting. After we spended 2 nights in Yangshuo. The river cruise on the Li river was breathtaking. In Yanghsuho we did so many thinks that I never expeced we could do it in 3 days. This was only possible because of our wonderful and perfect englisch speaking guide Gary. He is very professional, kind, helpful and patient and even our 3 teenager Kids liked him so much (normaly it is not easy to empress them). I can defenetly say that without him our stay in Guilin would not have been so perfect. For foreigners it is not easy to book tickets, going to covid test, find the right places,...or it takes us for ever. So Gary saved us so much time by booking in advance, finding the right entrances and especialy escape the crowed places.... we just had to follow him. He made our stay 100% perfect. more
