Fishy busi­ness

Travel Bulletin - - CHINA -

Ex­plor­ing Guilin’s finest, we take an evening cruise of the city’s four in­ter­con­nected lakes which fea­ture daz­zling il­lu­mi­na­tions teamed with singing and danc­ing along the shore­line. The lakes are also home to lo­cal fish­er­men who use tra­di­tional fish­ing meth­ods such as us­ing trained cor­morants which dive un­der the wa­ter and catch fish by swal­low­ing them whole. With so many wa­ter­ways, fish is one of the spe­cial­i­ties of Guilin, es­pe­cially Yangshuo Beer Fish along with Guilin Rice Noo­dles and Ginger Duck. Guilin cui­sine is known for its use of spices – es­pe­cially chilli – and chilli sauce is con­sid­ered one of the city’s ‘Three Trea­sures’. Rice roasted in bam­boo tubes sealed with banana leaves and baked on a char­coal fire is another re­gional spe­cialty.
