Guilin and Hong Kong
Spent two weeks away in July – a week in Hong Kong and 5 days in Guilin, a picturesque town of around 600,000 people, situated to the northeast of the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China. It sits beside the Li river, which winds its way through an amazing landscape dominated by limestone mounds which house amazing caves. here exploring the local area: a cruise on the River Li, visited some Panda’s, Tigers and Bears and spent time wandering around the town in between swimming in the hotel swimming pool and stuffing our faces with delicious Chinese food at local restaurants. The local wine wasn’t great, but the food was deliciously spicy and pretty cheap. We found the people friendly, especially those wanting to improve their English! One guy, called Tang, took time out to give us a private tour through the Forbidden city where one of China’s Emperors once hung out many moons ago.
