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.

Nous étions un groupe de 2 familles avec 3 adolescents. Daisy propose en plus de l'appartement spacieux ses services pour nous accompagner dans la région. Elle nous a permmis de faire des choses que nous n'aurions surement pas fait tout seul. Sa bonne humeur est communicative.
l'appartement est grand, nous avons pu y résider tranquillement, et nous régaler avec le pain du mari de Daisy.
un séjour agréable qui nous a permis de découvrir Guilin, les rizières, la rivère li, ...
merci Daisy pour votre aide

We had a delightful stay in the Penthouse.
Having researched all possible places to stay in Guilin for Chinese new year, we decided to go for this penthouse. We were pleasantly surprized, it was spacious and comfortable, my children were delighted to have their own bedrooms! This penthouse would be spacious enough for 2 families.
Mr Song's breakfast filled us up every morning, set us up for the action packed day Daisy had organised for us. I found it very helpful that Daisy was a tour guide, I told her the kind of things we wanted to see and do, she compiled a schedule for us and organised everything from the transport to the tickets. All events were flexible and we could add on more sightseeing if necessary.
On our days off, Daisy advised us on local areas we could visit and what buses to catch or we could just chill out in the penthouse.
I would really recommend this penthouse for your stay in Guilin, especially if you the adventurous type of person, we found Daisy and her family very helpful and the local Guilin people were delightful too.
The local restaurants were all a pleasant experience and the food was extremely tasty, by the end of the holiday we all had our favourite restaurant, even our children's taste buds were awoken!!
We currently live in Shanghai having moved from the Uk, I felt we experience the culture in more depth in Guilin and I would certainly recommend you get out and visit as many sights as you can as they all have a story to tell.
To offer guests a nice house and take to my picked restaurants usually make them good boys and girls. But the three teenagers got so exciting after the chicken village and tribe that they rocked the van on the winding way. What should I do? The stored stories and puzzles on my mind work well on them. Finally I was drawn to join their tricks and sneak on their dad. Rod seems rejoicing being a joke butt but spurred to study Chinese hard to fight back one day… Laughter, fun, chill-out, gain knowledge, nice food and bed etc. that is we call a holiday. Thank Rod, Wendy, Bethany, Connie and Bailey to be my guests on Chinese New Year.

“True Immersion -- Lifetime Experience”
Left on 07/14/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jul 14, 2013Stayed Jun 2013
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 aC. 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.

The apartment is in a nice area near the edge of town. Very peaceful. The owner was there to meet us when we arrived to explain where everything was and was easily accessible by phone if we needed advice about tourist sites or shopping areas. The apartment was clean and comfortable. It was a great place for our group of 7 to be able to be together as it has 4 bedrooms. We had free use of computer and high-speed internet which helped us plan our adventures in Guilin. Nice also to be able to do laundry and use the kitchen as needed.

We were well received, our trip was planned for optimum utilization, tickets and travel arranged well in advamce, so no wastage of time in Q or waiting. So flexible to accomodate late night shows and 3 sessions in a day. Access to kitchen, firdge, microwave etc.. will give you full freedom for food. the best thing the kids like was bunk bed and piano

This B&B; was an outstanding way to see the beautiful city of Guilin--with its misty karst mountains and meandering Li River. The property was clean, well-maintained and filled with useful and unique amenities. The owners were friendly, flexible, accommodating, capable and honest. Spending time in this property was a first-rate immersion experience. The family stayed on the lower level and cooked meals, arranged/guided trips (when requested) and met our needs/wants. The home-cooked local cuisine was memorable and delicious. Our family continues to talk about the many unforgettable cultural and culinary highlights of our Guilin B&B; experience.
