Activities around Guilin
Guilin is the Li river cruise access point. The Li River is one of the most 15 beautiful rivers in the world (rated by CNN) and winds along the jagged mountains for hundreds of miles in southern China. There is a 4 hour Li river cruise which provides an overall experience of this beautiful river. The Chinese call this the big landscape painting.
Guilin has been granted a Natural Heritage Site from UNESCO. Within the city center there are many different river pathways, bridges and 4 large lakes to view. Natural mountains pop up throughout the city core creating a unique and vibrant landscape like no other city in the world. Downtown Guilin sparkles in the night as the city is decorated with a plethora of colored lights. Visit the old Guilin gate, see the 4 lakes, walk over the 13 different European style bridges all which contribute to making the night life vibrate.
Also nearby are the LongSheng Terraced Paddy Fields, home to the ethnic minorities of Zhuang, Yao, Miao and Dong. These rice fields are incredibly beautiful and attract tourists from around the world. This is 110 km northwest of Guilin.
Other attractions include the Yulong River, where you can take a bamboo raft. Watch a demonstration by fishermen and their cormorant birds and enjoy another kind of lifestyle here.

Thank you Daisy for your courteous and thoughtful care, whether at the
apartment or as a guide for a family with absolutely no Chinese language
The apartment is outside the immediate city where tourists might
normally stay. Speaking only English we were at a minor disadvantage
locally; however we had Daisy's telephone number and were welcome to
call for any need, or to talk to a restaurant to assist us.
With weather changes Daisy was able to come up with acceptable
alternative excursions; and was a great help with explaining health
needs at a pharmacy.
On a busy, bustling day in Guilin, Daisy Chan greeted us on the opposite side of a street that was torn apart, and scraped bare due to construction. Daisy was warm and hospitable, helping us with our suitcases as she directed us to the apartment. The apartment was as promised, roomy and spacey, clean and adequately furnished, with an elevator that drops you right at the apartment door. Hopefully when you choose to rent this apartment, the construction and renovation of this part of Guilin will be completed. There is a brand new mall opening a short bus ride away from Daisy’s apartment featuring a large modern super market fully equipped for shopping needs. Our experience with Daisy was more than exceptional. She was extremely helpful and always answered her phone and our questions. A word of caution however, the heating system of the apartment is not equitable to most western standards. Unfortunately, we chose December to visit Guilin and coming from New England, were not use to the ‘spotty-heating’ systems used in China. There are wall space heaters with fans, BUT, if you are used to Western central radiant heat systems' as we were, you may find the apartment to have areas that are cold. All in all, the apartment in warmer weather, should be comfortable and pleasant. Also, do take Daisy’s guided tour on the Li River. She is an exceptional host and experienced tour guide.

We feel blessed to have found Daisy on VRBO! She helped us with our flights between multiple cities and meals along with sites of exploration. Because it was just the two of us we had an intimate tour with the best of Daisy's 16yrs experience in the travel industry. Our weather was very wet in beautiful Guilin, but Daisy was able to make the best of it changing plans so we could experience the most on our visit. The Penthouse was more then ample for us! With all the comforts of home we were even able to do some laundry. We especially enjoyed meeting your student's from your English class!! I'm not sure if we'll get the opportunity to visit again, but we would totally stay with you.

We spent the last week of July 2014 at Daisy's penthouse in Guilin, China. What an unforgettable, amazing experience. This vacation rental has everything you'll need for a relaxing and rejuvenating holiday. Daisy has been in the tourism sector for 15 years in Guilin and knows the ropes. Not only does she rent this wonderful holiday home, she also offers informative, safe and value added tours of the surrounding area. Daisy will give you an honest price and work hard to make sure your trip is everything you want it to be.
Her rental is located on the top floor of an apartment/condo building and its two stories. There is plenty of room for large groups or big families which is HARD to find anywhere in China. The price is unbeatable since you aren't forced to rent 2 hotel rooms to fit your family.
The rough and jagged mountains that make Guilin famous are visible from all the balconies of Daisy's place. She makes a great breakfast - which even my picky little eaters were happy with.
We hired her for 4 days of touring and it was wonderful to be able to custom pick the places we wanted to go and things we wanted to do rather than join a large group. I was very impressed with the van driver Daisy choose for us. He was such a safe driver and I felt confident that he could manage the long drives on sometimes a little scary roads.
She gave us great restaurant advice and made sure we were able to get where we wanted to go. A taxi ride to downtown from Daisy's place is a little far but just a couple bucks.
I would highly highly recommend Daisy's rental to anyone going to Guilin. Also - if her place is already rented - contact her for tours. She's probably the most honest tour guide out there.
I picked Guilin as one of our destinations on our trip because of browsing around the vrbo site. Daisy definitely lived up to my expectations. She was friendly and she is passionate about what she does.
We stayed only a few days and we were able to see a lot. Her apartment was spacious and the breakfast she provided was more than enough to feed 5 hungry adults. I travelled with my 11 month old and he seemed to enjoy his time there as well!
Thank you Daisy for your hospitality! I'll always remember the beautiful mountains!
We're almost two weeks back in Israel. We still have the good taste of China.
We enjoyed touring your country.
Thanks to you everything went easily and smooth: the flights, the hotels, the guides and drivers.
We thank you very much especially for the tour in Guilin, the special and unique area, and to your guiding. It was very interesting and unique!

There are not enough words to convey how wonderful of a time I had, the week I stayed at Daisy's home.
If you are looking for true immersions; living among the locals... this is the place. Her penthouse is spacious and clean. It's located in a condo/apartment complex with a guard house. In addition, for incidentals there is a little convenience store on the premises.
If you'd like you can ask Daisy to organize local trips around Guilin as well as restaurants. Pretty much if need something done she and her husband, a doctor of massage therapy, can make it happen. If you ask her husband he will give you a massage at the penthouse; for a fee.
Her home is quite comfortable and all the rooms have WC. The location is not in downtown Guilin and that was ok for us. But a 5 min bus from in front of the complex will get you to supermarkets, a small mall, restaurants, and banks. If you are willing to learn Chinese and willing to speak English to children, Daisy has a school that teaches English to elementary school kids. We took advantage of that and did a lot of local activities with the children and their families.
I felt very welcome in Daisy's home and in Guilin. So happy I lived among the locals.
