Guilin Day 03

A trip on the bamboo raft! approx 100RMB per person. Quite a long journey about 1hours ride up and down the river stream.











Elephant rock park. This place is quite stupid, just that the rock behind me and wj looks similar to an elephant, others say that from another angle, it can look like a rat!

streets of Guilin with lots of pasar malams....did i mention that the street stools im sitting on is shaped like a pig? Next picture is a paper hat cum display item...hmm, nice colours...retro feeling, but useless ornament.
golden and silver pagoda towers.

byebye Guilin and back to reality of a working slave.

Guilin Day 02 - Lunchtime > 银子岩


They say come to Guilin must try only one thing, and that is their 桂花糕. The name Guilin originates from their Osmanthus flower which is called 桂花 GuiHua in chinese. The lin means the 树林 forest and nature's landscaped 园林 area together with the breathtaking mirror reflecting lakes and stoney mountains.



Ritey, so that's a little facts on Guilin. Here are some photos of where we had our lunch, at a local restaurant where they serve traditional village food. As the weather was quite cold, we order rice wine to go along with our food. i personally think the rice wine was an acquired taste as our china chinese colleagues were downing their cups while me and wj couldnt even finish our small chinese teacups (those petite ones where they serve at the prayer alters?) wj thought it was too sour while i thot hmm...how shall i put it, similar to drinking vinegar?


And not forgetting to mention that our lunch venue was also at a tourist spot called 'Moon Hill' where wj and i took a picture...there is a hole in the hill which resembles the moon...so it's called Moon Hill literally. cheesy lah these china people.



After lunch, we went to other tourist destination called 银子岩 (silver cave) Approx $90RMB per pax.


This silver cave is deep and irregular with a great number of stalactites and when lit with lights these stalactites will glitter in silver specks like twinkles in the sky!!! very fairy tale like!!! truly amazing! And besides this remarkable silver sight, there is a small pond that reflects these magnificent majectic stalactites as if one was looking deep down into the caverns!!! I couldnt believe my eyes when i saw the reflection!!! cos it hell didnt look like a reflection, it was as if i was lookin deep down into the bottom of the cave!!!!


i swear. it was so cool.






after dinner, we went for our 印象刘三姐 play which was staged on the Guilin crystal clear waters with the mountains as the backdrop in all its natural glory. Magnificent! it was totally awesome, breath-taking and in all its grandeur. Characteristic of Zhang Yimou, the play brought forth lots of vivid and vibrant colours of scarlet, blue and golden yellow with hundreds of participants all dancing in sync. Armed with our binoculars and buttock pillows (plastic chairs were at the amphitheatre), we were seated in the chilly night, what an unforgettable atmosphere!!! half the time wishing that the play would continue cos the colours and the whole effort was amazing while half of the other time, i cant wait for it to end cos it was so cold!!!!




ritey, after the play, we went to 洋人街 where there were some late night market going on and lots of scattered pubs...we drank quite abit that nite as we downed 2 bottles of chivas regal and 20 bottles of coronas! pretty amazin yah! for about 10 of us! hahaha....*burp*
