Guilin Weather in December
CityWeatherGuilin comes into its winter weather in December when the temperature may drop down to around 8C (46F). Although much warmer than Beijing, Xi'an or Shanghai at this time, the weather will still be chilly due to the dampness and strong winds especially when the cold air comes from the north. Thus, you'd better stay in a hotel with heating to keep warm. Drizzle is also common in December, but it seldom snows or freezes.
The Li River is at its lowest water level during this period, so only the Yangdi to Xingping section is available for cruise tours. The scenery on both sides appears less vital than usual. The Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces also present a desolate scene. In a word, it is not the best time to travel to Guilin, despite low travel cost.
