Visiting a night market is also an interesting experience. After the sunset, when the lights come on, food stall owners begins their business selling various local-flavor dishes and snacks, such as rice noodles, snails and sweet rice wine. Rice noodles cooked with horsemeat are a Guilin specialty that tourists may try.
There is also a night market specializing in handicrafts and antiques. The market stretches several hundred meters along Binjiang Road, and on the sale are all kinds of handicrafts and art works, from ancient furniture to silk and paintings.
Here, business is flourishing, but you need to do your homework on how to distinguish a good from bad, and a real from fake before you go shopping on the market.
