Silversea Luxury Cruises A Shenzhen


Located immediately north of Hong Kong, Shenzhen is a large, dynamic and highly urbanized metropolis and the gateway to the inland region of Guilin, which is accessed by train. In contrast to this urban starting point, the train from Shenzhen to Guilin reveals magnificent scenery of steep karst hills and beautifully stepped agricultural areas that follow the natural curves of the hilly terrain.

Guilin means “Forest of Sweet Osmanthus” for its large number of fragrant trees, and is one of China’s most popular tourist destinations because of its lovely natural landscapes. Although less urbanized than Shenzhen, Guilin is still a populous area, with over 4.7 million residents in the region. Popular destinations in the area include the Longsheng Rice Terrace nestled in the karst hills, the Pagodas on Fir Lake, scenic caves, and the Li and Yangshuo Rivers, to name only a few. Visitors trying local cuisine in Guilin will find it is a mixture of Cantonese and southern minority cuisine and is known for the use of spices, including Guilin chili sauce. The popular Chinese saying best encapsulates this beautiful place: “Guilin’s scenery is the best among all under heaven.”
