Guilin, Sanya - China Report

Foodnut8 | Jun 10, 2011 02:02 PM

We were recently in Guilin, and Sanya, Hainan Island, China and noticed that there are no reports on here. Both of these areas are some of the most beautiful parts of China. A great change of pace from the big cities.

On the 3rd month of the 3rd day, per the lunar calendar, Guilin has a Street food Festival. We luckily encountered this and have a bunch of pictures of the interesting foods available.

Guilin has an excellent Shangri-La hotel, that is not only an excellent hotel, but houses a branch of Hong Kong's Shang Palace. The food at dinner was very good, but they have an all you can eat lunch dim sum that is a bargain, and features. Good quality food.
Yangshou is at the end of the Li River cruise in an even more beautiful city that deserves several nights lodging. The eateries are far more crude, but we managed to find some excellent beer fish and steamed chicken their.

Sanya is essentially China's Hawaii, with warm water and sandy beaches. Only found a couple good places there, and Dianping really wasn't much of a help. Hopefully others can have to my list of decent spots. A coconut hainan chicken dish we had . A Hot Springs resort, was stellar.
