Things to Do in Guilin
Tour the building and extensive grounds of the Jingjiang Mansion, once the seat of the Jingjiang family who reigned in this part of China between 1368 and 1644. The property is enclosed by a 1.5-kilometre-long wall with the buildings, palace gates, gardens and its quarters arranged on a symmetrical axis. The axis centre is Solitary Beauty Peak, with 306 steps leading to its peak where you’ll get stunning views across the city. Another popular site is Elephant Trunk Hill, officially known as Xiangbi Mountain, a rocky outcrop on the Li River. It is known for its resemblance to an elephant dipping its trunk in the river.
Steaming and stir frying are popular methods of cooking local dishes, often a combination of Cantonese and Hunan cuisine, which are characterised by their sweetness. Take a stroll along Guilin Zhengyang Pedestrian Street to savour some authentic dishes and exotic delicacies, available in restaurants and from street vendors.
