Guilin (桂林), Guangxi Province, China

Don't forget to visit the caves in Guilin.

The spectacular views of Guilin are one of the two main reasons people come here. The rock formations are a result of kinda water dissolution process, called a “Karsting”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karst_topography. Yep, you can get on some of the rocks, paying some money or just get the “all-inclusive” ticket that allows to climb to all of them and to enter two marvelous colorfully-illuminated caves (yep, this is the second reason) with stalactites, stalagmites, stuff like that. Some of those natural sculptures will have picturesque names (like “three men, crossing the river on a boat”).

Don’t miss the night market on Zhongshan Road and if you have enough money – take a cruise on Li River (Li Jiang in Mandarin Chinese). Get off at Yangshuo to spend another few days taking yoga lessons or exploring the local villages by bike.

One more tip: to get TO “Guilin”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guilin on time buy your train tickets at least a few days ahead.
