Guangxi Province

Many visitors to China will include Guilin on their itinerary, taking the Li River Cruise to Yangshuo, perhaps staying for a night, then returning to the airport to fly on to the next destination. But Guangxi province is deserving of much deeper exploration. Boasting lush, green countryside, spectacular karst peak and rice-terraced landscapes,  the largest waterfall in Asia and minority villages with vibrant traditional culture, it is a great choice for travellers wanting to immerse themselves in rural China.
