Directly behind the gate is a restaurant called "You Fei Yu Ping You Cha Hui Suo". We were staying nearby at "This Old Place" Youth Hostel and ate here several times. Each time the food was really good, especially the vegetables. It's not expensive and...More

This is one of the sights you pass along when walking around the lakes in the city center. It's nicely lit at night and with a wet surface makes for nice reflections. However it is also not much more than that. You can view it...More

We went for a walk around the two lakes in Guilin (Banyan and Cedar lakes). On our way we came across this ancient gate. It is very impressive. Worth seeing.

It was the first sight we visited in Guilin, nice place for a half an hour stroll once the New Old town gets re-build. It was supposed to get finished in 2015 already.

Situated within the Jiang river, it is just a standing tower. Nothing fanciful really. The park where it situated was worth a visit especially at night to enjoy it's surrounding scenery.

This is part of the old wall that surrounded Guilin centre, I believe. It is worth a five minute stop on a walk around the lake. Much more interesting is the old gate and locks by the entrane to the town rivers from the LiJiang...More

The only remaining part of the original Guilin city walls is actually worth a look as it leads nicely into the "New Old Town" where the city is restoring dozens of old buildings along the eastern and southern stretches of the wall. It's almost kitsch,...More

While on the way back to my hotel from my hike at Diecai hill, I strayed into this Rong lake area. First I saw the Glass bridge where you need to pay RMB10 to walk along the bridge. Then, not far from the Glass bridge,...More

Interesting sight and a good place to see when in the area or on a slow day, but not a must see. Near shopping area

There is little left of the ancient gate and a modern building has been built on top. If you're wandering Riyue Cultural park, you will pass by the gate and almost miss it. Nice photo stop, but don't come just for the gate.
