    The location was good, the staff was great - really friendly and chatty. They go out of their way to help you and their English is clear. The rooms were a bit smelly but I think that was because of the mosquito traps. Everything was also quite clean. Overall, pretty nice stay!

    We arrived in Guilin at about 1.30am. Dazed and confused we were guided to a local hotel by a crazy woman, and decided the easiest option would be to stay there for the night. For 40 yuan (divide by 10 gives you it in pounds), it seemed like an easy and relatively cheap option which I was happy to take. The room was far from luxurious but it did us …

    Today we visited the rice terraces - SO GORGEOUS...and this is why my momma always told me that "every grain of rice is a measure of hard work" (it sounds better in Chinese).

    I've never seen rice terraces before, and I was in awe at the beautiful terrain and the hard work that goes into …

    So originally I had planned to visit various places further up north/mid-north, but we ended up flying down to Guilin due to lack of train tickets (did I say this already? I feel like I did). Anyway, we stayed at the Riverside Hostel - it was okay, nothing to rave about, but also nothing to complain about.

    Our first day here was spent …

    We are up early for our tour and breakfast in the hostel. Our tour guide Lucy, collects us along with an Italian couple on their honeymoon (Paula and Max). We visit an older tribe of Chinese, now capitalising on the tourist market. It feels strange and uncomfortable, like we have come to gawp at them as in a zoo but they happily mix with the group …

    I started my 8 day weekend today. There is a national holiday this coming Wednesday, and my school has 4 days off, those days being Monday - Thursday. But for some strange reason (Chinese logic) instead of making the holiday days combine with the weekend, they fall during the work week.
