Guilin, formerly known as Kweilin, is a city in China that is best known for its osmanthus trees; hence, its name that literally means Forest of Sweet Osmanthus. Also considered a prefecture-level city in the northeast China region, this popular tourist destination is actually the perfect epitome of Mother Nature herself. There’s the Cuiping Village with a scenic view of tall hills, as well as the Xinping Village with a picturesque view of connecting islands. There’s also the still Li River, which links Guilin to the lush Yangshou County. There’s even the Reed Flute Cave, where tall reeds are made into musical flutes.
But you know what?
Guilin also inspired the world-class Kweilin Restaurant, a Chinese restaurant in Scotland that features delicacies from this rare gem of a city itself. Some of their most popular dishes include spring rolls, fried rice, and prawn crackers. They are rated 4.5 on TripAdvisor, further proving that their dishes are nothing but deliciously delicious than other delicious dishes out there.
And, let’s not forget the fact that Guilin is well-known in the food industry for their delicate tastes – with horse meat being used as pairing for noodles, and also glutinous rice as pairing for dumplings, and even mung bean paste as pairing for bamboos.
Indeed, there’s more.
There’s more to China than what it seems to be.
There’s more to Guilin than what it seems to be.
Most of all, there’s more to me than what people in China – or even other girls who travel – seem to think so.
And it’s all thanks to this blog…
