    Traveling While Black

    Very luckily I had got a chance to go to Guilin– it was a wonderful trip!! This city is known as one of the most picturesque in China and is actually featured on the back of the 20RMB Note.
    If you don’t speak Chinese, then you better have a good translator and a stable VPN because there are not many people outside of tour agents and young children speak English.

    I stayed in Guilin for 4 days and then traveled to the nearby town Yangshou for 3 days.

    There are tons of amazing things to do including:

    Longsheng Rice Terraces-This is where you can learn about ancient Chines culture and meet one of China’s 50 or so Ethnic Minorities. The women in this Ethnic group have a tradition in which they never cut their hair! You can take the cable car up for panoramic views of the terraced rice fields. It’s absolutely stunning! The best time to go is before the rice is harvested so you can see the golden fields of rice.

    Go to the Sun and Moon Towers- They are right in the heart of Guilin surrounded by a beautiful park and lake with lots of restaurants around. You can even go inside them! I think they are more impressive at night because they illuminate!

    Guilin Tea Science and Research Institute- One of the most highly regarded tea plantations in China. Very unique and cultural experience if you are interested in learning more about Chinse Tea Culture. You tour the plantation, learn how to pick and harvest tea and then have a traditional tea ceremony where you taste a bunch of different teas.

    Visiting the Reed Flute Cave- It is a natural limestone cave with multicolored lighting and has been one of Guilin’s most interesting attractions for over 1200 years.

    Climbing Moon Hill- It takes about 20 minutes to climb up to the arch, or considerably longer for those who wish to reach the summit. Visitors must pay a small entrance fee to climb the hill. The views from the top are lovely!

    Elephant Trunk Hill- This is a very touristy attraction, so expect there to be a lot of people. Go early or right before it close to avoid the crowds. It’s also

    Xicheng Pedestrian Street Market-From clothes and fake bags and shoes to calligraphy paintings and porcelain, this markets offer a wide variety of options. It’s fun to barter, no Chinese needed, as most shop keepers just whip out a calculator.

    Take a bamboo boat down the Li River- Relaxing on a cruise from Guilin to the quaint town of Yangshuo along the Li River is the best way to enjoy the natural beauty of the area. There are tons of options for this depending on your budget. Take a Cruise ship with meals included and a tour guide, or Take an engine-powered bamboo boat or take a traditional man-powered bamboo boat.
