Great location. The rooms to this "museum" hotel are beautifully decorated. Enjoyed a room overlooking the lake and city skyline. Internet cabelling in all rooms. Front desk employees were extremely helpful. Had a wonderful stay.

The next day I had signed up for an organized trip to the famous Longji rice terraces. Another girl from the hostel, Laura from Budapest, also joined me on this trip and together we travelled on the bus with a collection of tourists from all over the world.
It was quite a trip, but after ...
... can we get a ticket with sleeper to Guilin?' 'Tuesday' the attendant tells us. 'okay okay... We will take the upright chairs'... It was only around 6pm after on board the train that we had the consideration that 14h may have meant time of arrival....2pm. A 22 hour train ride! We survived. We even made some non-English speaking friends (one of whom bought us lunch after the long ride) and I even slept a portion of the night on the floor, curled up beneath ...
