At the six horse bridge and the endless rows of clocks with time around the world. But time is not correct. At the other side you have the bells. Its nice and its free.

Popular spot with locals waiting for the Lijiang waterfall or strolling after. Hawkers selling whirly gigs which light up when you shoot them into the sky and various other cheap kids toys. Not a must see, but another great spot for people watching.

Now that I am seeing the picture I finally could recognize it... skip it, doesn't worth, there is nothing to see beyond a manicured garden in the front (one), that's it.

Always busy and bustling, it's better to come to the square at night, when all the streets surrounding the area are abuzz with locals and nightlife. Not much to see other than shops, food stalls and restaurants; it's the atmosphere you come here for and it's far more lively after dark.

If you are visiting Guilin and you have check-in luggage, dare go downstairs in the main plaza and you will enter in another world, shops, shops, shops with lots of clothes at ridiculous prices. Cheap, maybe not good quality but I bought working black pants for 3 dollars each and I loooove them! Do not forget to try the street... More

This is a great starting point for any travelers to the area and good meeting point for friends. The open space is nice to let the kids run around. The walking street is near by with lots of places to eat and shop. There's also a movie theater and KTV places.

We stayed at the Waterfall Hotel, so after dinner we walked to the pedestrian street, did some shopping there and then came here for the 10-minute waterfall show that started at 8:30. It was a Saturday and the city provided cultural show on stage with dancing, singing, and other interesting performances. The waterfall show was pretty but after the show... More

Nothing in particular to look at but will probably come across it at some point while walking around town or going to/from the train station.

This square is the city center of Guilin. It's surrounded by numerous establishments, banks, department stores, shops, restaurants, walking street, McDonald's, KFC, etc. The walking route for the two rivers and four lakes (Sun and Moon Tower) is right there. Very convenient for public transport.
