An access point to Yangshuo, located downriver, Guilin is known for its ‘small city’ feel, in sharp contrast to the soaring, bustling life in areas such as Beijing and Shanghai. The most popular thing to do is a river trip down the Li River, visits to Buddhist temples and walking about town.

Airfare to Guilin will be the cheapest on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday. Mondays are popular with business travellers and weekends are key dates for holidaymakers wanting the longest trips possible – avoid these dates.

Also consider flights into Hong Kong. To get between the cities, you can grab a spot on a train, bus or flight. Look for cheap flights on no frills airlines. Spring Airlines flies to Guilin. And although it will take longer to reach your destination, a bus or train could save you enough cash to make it worth your while.

Another possible money-saving tip is to look for flights that go through Bangkok, Thailand; Delhi, India; or another major gateway city instead of flying direct. Because there are more flights – and competition – from these cities on low budget airlines, you can save some cash over flying non-stop to your destination. It is very common to layover in one of these main cities.

Finally, consider traveling on a lesser-known carrier. Air China, China Eastern Airlines, China Northern Airlines and China Southern Airlines are the national airlines. However, Thai Airways and other airlines also stop in Guilin.

The most expensive air tickets to Guilin are found during peak holiday travel times, such as the New Year. Also be aware of national events or festivals, which can also cause ticket prices to rise.

Summary of Money Saving Tips:

  • Fly mid-week
  • Book your holiday during the off-peak season
  • Consider flying into Hong Kong and traveling overland to Guilin via train or bus
  • Look for flights that go through large cities, with many flights
  • Check out carriers besides the national airline – they may undercut the monopolistic competition
