Guilin Shopping

Not being a fashion metropolis, Guilin doesn 't offer a lot of high end trendy brand names. Instead, it is a place to enjoy some leisurely shopping for inexpensive souvenirs and decorations. A wide array of beautifully crafted local products fill the stores, including landscape paintings, pottery, porcelain, wood and bamboo sculptures, hand-painted folding screens, boxwood combs, bamboo fine-tooth combs, and embroidered balls.

Guilin is particularly well known for its sweet-scented osmanthus products, including osmanthus tea and wine. While in town, you definitely have to try the "Three Treasures of Guilin": sanhua alcohol, fermented bean curd, and chili sauce.
