Day Ten

Guilin


We have an extra day to kill in Guilin before we head on a boat tour tomorrow. We spent most of the day walking around the city and exploring the attractions.

Our first stop is a park just outside the city center called the Qixing scenic area.

As you can see, the weather wasn't great; rain and fog/haze were the backdrop of the day.

There were many other attractions such as wall climbing and paintball in the scenic area, but those activities weren't enjoyable in the rain.

Around noon we headed back to the city to get delicious lunch.

After lunch, we accidentally entered the wrong park, but since we paid for it, we might as well explore every inch of it.

We were very disappointed with the park until, when we were making our way to the exit, we noticed a map showing a viewpoint at the top of a mountain.
