A place you don't want to miss when you're here and it's fun to take photos at night at this place and have fun @ the gate.

Attractive by night and during the day. Combine it with a walk around the lake -- or farther up the river if you want. The strolling around the lakes is probably the very best thing about Guilin itself.

It was the first sight we visited in Guilin, nice place for a half an hour stroll once the New Old town gets re-build. It was supposed to get finished in 2015 already.

Situated within the Jiang river, it is just a standing tower. Nothing fanciful really. The park where it situated was worth a visit especially at night to enjoy it's surrounding scenery.

This is part of the old wall that surrounded Guilin centre, I believe. It is worth a five minute stop on a walk around the lake. Much more interesting is the old gate and locks by the entrane to the town rivers from the LiJiang...More

The only remaining part of the original Guilin city walls is actually worth a look as it leads nicely into the "New Old Town" where the city is restoring dozens of old buildings along the eastern and southern stretches of the wall. It's almost kitsch,...More
