Guilin is a city in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China, located on the Li River. It is named after osmanthus, a tree that grows abundantly between the river and the hills. Founded more than 2,000 years ago in the Qin Dynasty, Guilin is one of Guangxi's best-known tourist destinations, of which it is the former capital. The city now covers 551 km2 and has about 1 million inhabitants in 2010.
Guilin was also one of the strongholds of Chinese resistance against the Japanese invasion. An opposition march was also held there in the spring of 1989. Guilin is known for its landscape composed of thousands of small mountains in the form of steep slopes, karst landforms, characteristic of this region. This extraordinary landscape, almost supernatural for some, is very popular with tourists, who use the Guilin Liangjiang International Airport, 30 km southwest of the city.
The Guilin area is one of the most productive agricultural land in the country: rice, cereals, citrus fruits, taro, chestnuts are grown here. Another pillar of the local economy is tourism for beginners. The pleasures of country life were set up by the authorities and appealed to more and more Chinese townspeople. © Pictures of Emmanuel Buchot
