Travel Tips

1. The best time to visit these attractions is in summer and autumn.

2. It is suggested to wear down jackets and warm shoes since it is cold on the top of the snow mountain. Visitors can rent a down jacket on the mountain for 50 Yuan. When climbing the snow mountain, please avoid vigorous physical activities to prevent altitude sickness. Additionally, visitors can also buy an oxygen tank at the foot of the mountain for about 50 or 60 Yuan.

3. It is not recommended to visit these attractions during “May 1st” and “October 1st” these two golden vacation weeks. At that time, Guilin with suitable weather will meet a lot of tourists, so the hotel reservation and transportation will be in its climax, the price will be much higher than ordinary times.
