A scenic town with a truly natural beauty. Guilin, you’ve been lovely.

*How we got there: I don’t want to disappointed the interested ones but getting to Guilin from Hong Kong is definitely exhausting (well, it depends on the time you start the trip/in my case, I started late at night).At first, you need to get the MTR from Central station in Hong Kong to Shenzhen. Afterwards, get to the North Station in Shenzhen to get a two and a half hour train to Guilin (the express one).*
