Guilin itinerary, Laozhai
 12     8     30     0
  Duration: 1.5 hrs

While Laozhai is popular at sunset, the best views from Xianggong Hill are found at sunrise. Photo: Wikimedia CommonsLocated a few miles directly north of Yangshuo, Guilin Laozhai Mountain is the place to go if you want the most iconic views of Yangshuo.

Day 3
Guilin itinerary, Yulong River
 65     58     30     0
  Duration: 1.5 hrs

The Yulong River is a small tributary of the larger Li River in Southeastern Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region that runs through the major city of Guilin to Yangshuo. The Yulong starts in Northern Yangshuo County near Litang and runs for over 35 kilometres through small villages of the Yulong River Valley, including Litang, Chaolong, Yima and Gaotian town, before emptying into the Li around the town of Ping Le. The Yulong is a shallow river of around 5 meters maximum depth and an average of 25 meters across. As it is not located near any industrial areas, it is clean enough for swimming, though some brownish surface foam is visible in eddys, probably the result of phosphate runoff from local villages.

Guilin itinerary, 月亮山
 0     11     30     1
  Duration: 1.5 hrs

Personally, we’ve never actually been up to Moon Hill, but even just seeing it from the road is impressive. There’s a better view of Moon Hill from outside of the park entrance than from inside, as the closer you get to it the harder it is to take it all in.

Guilin itinerary, River Garden Tent Hotel- Yangshuo
 0     1     30     0
  Duration: 1.5 hrs

Rent a bicycle for your afternoon adventure for roughly ¥10 a day and ask your hotel or hostel for directions toward the Ten-Mile Gallery, known in Chinese as Shili Hualang. So named because walking or cycling down the scenic stretch of road seems like you’re inside a painting, the Ten-Mile Gallery is packed with viewpoints and natural attractions. For most foreign visitors, the north gate of the Ten-Mile Gallery Scenic Area will be the closest entrance. Follow the asphalt road and the clearly marked signs as you pass farmers working in their verdant fields and see the Yulong River from another angle at Gongnong Bridge.

Guilin itinerary, Green Lotus
 0     3     0     0
  Duration: 3 hrs

I got reminded of the Lotus Lake in Taiwan’s Kaohsiung when we arrived at Fir Lake (also known as Shan Lake). Needless to say I was completely inspired once again. I might be full of more hyperboles than you wish to hear, but what do you want me to do? Pretend it was shit? Because it’s not. Places like Fir Lake that are free to admire and beautiful make my day. I loved it.

I loved all the hostel facilities; everything was so neat. It was best to move around the scenic location, Two Rivers and Four Lakes of the hostel.
