Guilin & the Reed Flute Caves

Guilin, China


Guilin is quite a modern city, at least in comparison to the many 'ancient' towns we had recently visited, and it was really easy to get around by local bus & see the sights. One of which was a trip to the Reed Flute Caves.
It's a beautiful grotto, illuminated by multicoloured lights with lots of strange rock formations some of which look like mushrooms & tigers (apparently!) and was actually pretty spectacular.
Here we sampled a few of our fave culinary delights, rice pots filled with as many delicious ingredients as we could ask for (but only those they could understand that we were asking for!) and a great shopping centre/market stall that served up the best noodle soup ever.......that we actually shared with a fellow Stokie that we met along the way!

From here we took a River cruise on the Li River, down to Yangshou..........and I think this was the highlight of Guilin for us. The River scenery was almost like a minature Yangze River cruise and for us was the perfect way to reach our next destination. Yangshuo.
