Guilin, located on the west bank of the Li River and bordered by Hunan to the north, is a prefecture-level city in the northeastern part of the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region of China. Its name means Forest of Sweet Osmanthus because of the city's abundance of fragrant osmanthus trees. Long known for its karst landscapes, the city is one of the most popular tourist destinations in China.
The stunning limestone hills and towers attract visitors from China and around the world to this city of 630,000 people. Popular attractions include the 120-hectare Seven Star Park, Reed Flute Cave, the 200-foot-high Fubo Hill and the popular Elephant Trunk Hill. Guilin is popular as the starting point for Li River cruises to Yangshuo and for visiting nearby Yao, Miao and Dong villages. April, May, September and October are the best months to visit, as extremes such as high temperatures and heavy rainfall can be avoided during these months.
