TravelPod Member ReviewsShilin Hotel Huangshan
Our guide recommended Shilin over Paiyonlou as we are told the rooms are larger and cleaner. Shilin was a comfortable stay on the mountain. The double room was very small so you might consider opting for the twin room which is slightly larger and has a small balcony.
Zero English. Meals were OK but nothing special.

Walking only down, I felt like I was in a kind of trance. When we were finally down we took the bus back to the Huangshan station and walked from there to the hostel while the rain was pouring down on us.. But it had been a beautiful day, the views were indeed ...
It's been a while, I've been back to Japan for one week, stayed in Hong Kong for another week and now I'm in China! In Huangshan, famous for its Yellow Mountains, where I will go to as soon as I have my first day off. Same as in Busan and Kibichuo(Okayama) I'm doing volunteerwork here as well. But it's definitely different from the places before. 1) I'm the only volunteer ...
... the concept of Feng shui, which I didn't realise till I got here means wind and water in chinese. So most of the buildings had gaps in the roof to collect water in pools as traditionally Chinese people believe water brings good fortune.
Next day we climbed the famous Huangshan mountain, which was apparently ...
