Introduction to Shangri-La in Guilin (世外桃源景区)

The Shangri-La Guilin, or named "Land of Peach Blossoms", is a popular tourist site in Guilin. Located 15 kilometers north of Yangshuo County and 50 kilometers south of Guilin, the Shangri-La is a nature park which is built inside a lake. The Shangri-La depicted in the legendary novel Lost Horizon by English writer James Hilton describes a paradise featured by snow-covered peaks, grasslands, lakes and forests. This Shangri-La in Guilin also present a paradise with spectacular natural scenery.

As the Shangri-La located inside a lake, tourists can take boat to reach there. There are many beautiful and interesting sights to enjoy. The first sight to come into the eyes is the Peach Pavilion which is a five storyed building and from its view platform at the top tourists can get a panoramic view of the surroundings. After the Peach Pavilion, tourists will be led to the idyllic Swallow Lake which is the largest tributary of the Yulong River. This is a great place for drifting with its limpid water and the charming scenery along the river bank. Taking the cruise boat or sailing on the lake is very popular among tourists.

As there are many ethnic people from minorities like Dong and Miao living in north of Guilin around the Shangri-La, buildings in the park are mostly styled at Dong and Miao. On the lake there stands the Wind-and-Rain Bridge which is characterized with classic Dong minority features. Large Totem Pillars are found when coming through the bridge. The Grand-view Garden inside the park is a great place to have some fun and tourists can watch folk custom performances of ethnic dances and songs from Zhuang, Miao, Yao, and Dong minorities.
