Day 66 to 68 Picturesque Guilin

20160902_132949We arrived Guilin by plane from Xi’an. From the air we could see that the region was full of lush and green nature, small hat-shaped mountain hills, beautiful curvy rivers, and farmland. Guilin city has more or less the same size as Oslo in Norway regarding inhabitants but when we count the greater outskirts of it, it numbers nearly 5 million people. They farm lots of local fruits, spices and rice. Still the main industry is the production of medicine, textiles, electronics, food (including fish) products and rubber. Our second night in Guilin we had the pleasure of tasting freshly squeezed bamboo juice and it was surprisingly sweet and quite good. We also ate local dishes which included tiny shrimp in their shells. Guilin is famous for its grand nature, Li River, beautiful caves and rice terraces.
