The word “Guilin” in Chinese means “Forest of Sweet Osmanthus.” And indeed, the place is true to its name. Set in the midst of pristine wilderness, this city offers a one-of-a-kind experience – be it a cruise along the Li River, the scenic wonder of the Reed Flute Caves, or an evening tour of the Two Rivers and Four Lakes project.

Buses and taxis provide a great alternative for people commuting to locations within the city. Biking is another very popular means of travel to short distances.
Due to its popularity with both domestic as well as foreign tourists, the government has taken a number of measures to ensure that the city remains free of air pollution and has a number of services and facilities for all visitors.
