Tour Itinerary Planning

For Muslim Business Travelers

If you are a Muslim and you are on business here in Guilin and you have one day off to tour around Guilin, we suggest to take the one day Li River Cruise trip, spend some time in Yangshuo once the cruise ship arrives there, back to the city in the afternoon you may join the local Muslims at Guilin Ancient Mosque for Salat prayer.

For Muslim leisure travelers

3 Days and 2 Nights Guilin Muslim Tour is the best choice for Muslim leisure travelers because this tour itinerary allows you to have enough time to know both Guilin’s culture heritages as well as Muslim heritages. You are not in a hurry to get around Guilin from one place to another. Please check IslamiChina’s Guilin Muslim Tour 3 Days for details.


The 4-star Guilin Guishan Hotel is the only hotel in Guilin which has a Halal restaurant available for Muslim travelers.

Halal Restaurants

Since there are not many Muslims living in Guilin, there are very few Halal restaurants available in Guilin. The easy way to find Halal food in Guilin is to look for Xinjiang Uyghur Restaurants and Lanzhou Beef Noodle Restaurants.


Guilin Ancient Mosque is located in the city proper area where local Guilin Muslim perform salat prayers. The Seven Star Mosque is located in the picturesque Seven Star Park.

Money Exchange

You can exchange traveler's checks or cash at most banks, and most 5-star and 4-star hotels always have a money exchange counter. You can also get a cash advance on your credit card on ATM machine. The exchange rate all over China are the same fixed by Bank of China. To change money, you have to have your passport at hand. If you want to change money in a hotel, you usually have to be a guest there. Sometimes if you are not a guest in a hotel but need to change money there, you can just say a random room number, but this doesn't always work. Remember to keep the exchange slip well because you need this slip to change the Chinese Yuan back to your currency if you do have this need at the end of the tour. At present, the RMB is not exchangeable on the International market, so it is only usable within the country. So when you are changing money, don't change too much, because it is difficult to change back into other currencies. To change RMB back into your home currency, you must retain the exchange slips that are given to you at the bank or money exchange counter.
