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.

It's fair to say that some were having more success than others... And yes, me and Lily (okay, just me) really wanted one of them to fall in. Sadly, this didn't come about.
With Friday came one of our favourite excursions out to a tiny village ...
... to find every nook and cranny. China is full of stairs – sometimes no longer going anywhere or only to locked doors!
Some stuff from around Guilin.The Lijiang River and first look at Karst Mountains.
Really awesome countryside, but still on the cold side.
They really like neon and lights in China.
The Next morning, Dec. 22, we are on a Bus to Yangshuo, about 40 miles down the road. We will be here ...
