This was the first day of 3 in Guilin, and it definitely set the tone. We loved the cruise, our tour guide who was both hilarious and knowledgeable, and the visit to Yangshuo. Even the bus rides had great views. You will stand in awe the entire day. This day alone made us fall in love with Guilin. Seeing the exact view that’s on the 20 Yuan was surreal. I couldn’t say enough about this trip. If you get a chance to take a country tour while in Yangshuo, I recommend it.
