When to come to Guilin
The optimum time to travel in Guilin is from April to November. It is warm with some rain in April and May. On rainy days, the rivers, pinnacles and the city itself can be shrouded in mist, which is especially enchanting. Summer – June, July and August can be hot and humid; most of the rain comes in June and July. But the beauty to be found out doors is quite adequate compensation. Autumn –September, October and November is a beautiful time to visit Guilin as the weather cools down. And it is sunny almost everyday because dry season starts in this season.
But, try to avoid the golden week, National Day (1 October to 7 October), when all the people in China seem to come out and travel. Also Spring Festival (Chinese New Year) in January or February should also be avoided since more and more families take a trip rather than staying at home as before. At these times you can expect difficulties with hotel reservations, ticket booking and traffic conditions and prices are frequently much higher.
