Where to Stay in Guilin?
1 Aroma Tea House
Set in a historical tea house, lovely renovated to encapsulate its past and continue its rich traditions, hosting an exceptional collection of antiques and art. Located near the Banyan Lake and night market.
2 Guilin Central Hostel
Located in the very city center, the side of the Li River, next to Guilin Sheraton Hotel. Close to the pedestrian street, where there are kinds of restaurants, local food and shops.
Where to Stay in Yangshuo?
The hotels in Yangshuo concertrate on two areas: surounding the West Street and along the Yulong River. 1) The hotels near the West Street are easy to reach, can enjoy bars and night life, but will be noisy and crowded. 2) However, the hotels along the Yulong River will be more quiet and private, also with larger room and amazing countryside landscapes, but 10-20 km away from the downtown although almost all hotels have the free pick-up service.
