Tips for Travelling to Guilin
Try to Avoid domestic travel seasons
Try to plan your Chengdu tour by avoiding the peak holidays. Because of the popularity of Chengdu and Pandas for Chinese tourists, those attractions become more crowded in these periods.
 
The most crowded seasons in China are Chinese Spring Festival (usually in late Jan or early Feb.), International Labour Day (May 01 to 03) and National Day (Oct 01-07). Spring Festival and the National Day golden week are the most crowded time for travelling.
