Guilin promised so much and unfortunately delivered so little. We arrived from Nanning and found yet another amazing Guesthouse (the dream run continues) and set out exploring. This place was very different to Nanning - not very modern and quite dirty. The 'sights' were lucklustre at best, and after two nights we were pretty eager to move on to Yangshuo. I guess this wasn't the polished China we had seen in Nanning, nor was it the relaxed countryside we were about to encounter in Yangshuo.
