Was a long ride to get to longsheng, but it was totally worth it! It was very very hot and the wait to take the lift to go up was pretty long and no A/C..but all of that goes away when you star going up! Is amazing, and so perfect! At least for me that I’m afirmó argentina and things are not that lever of perfection. So I recommend you must do it!!


My friends and I had a wonderful time in Guilin from the time we arrived at the train station till the day we left. My tour guide, TOM WU, made our holiday so enjoyable and relaxing. He is not only friendly and helpful but also always ever handy especially when I have a senior citizen in this trip. Tom and the driver really made our holiday worthwhile and enjoyable. Thank you so much.
