Monday 23rd
Today we were to arrive in Guilin, make our way to the Hotel Universal and explore Guilin.
There were a couple of things we hadn't factored in - the first was the typhoon that was lashing south east China - just where we were heading. The other was diarrhoea. Poor Ann had the most awful night and on this slow and rickety train …

Day 11 - Ping'an Village

... how the Zhuang have cultivated this land. They use water buffalos to plow the terraces each year. However, when the rice terrace is too narrow for a water buffalo, they pull the plow themselves or use a hoe. To plant, weed and harvest is hard work - work in which all the villagers must help.

Because of the climate in the Longshen (Dragon-Spine) Terraces, there is only ...

    Guilin is such a picturesque town on the Li river with lots of tourist attractions, and is the gateway to Yangshou. The prices in the hotel we felt were excessive for food, drinks and simple things like business services. Nonetheless, the room was clean and comfortable and there were lots of nearby options for a good meal. We found The Little Italian Cafe which gave great service, lots of useful information and well priced food and drink - and best of all - fabulous coffee!
