China is quickly gaining ground as a hotspot for tourism (ranked the world's 4th most visited nation). And in easily the most beautiful spot in the entire country-- with breathtaking natural scenery of winding rivers and limestone outcroppings covered in vegetation-- Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts is planning to open the Shangri-La Hotel, Guilin. Slated to open in 2009, the hotel will be situated on the Li Jiang River, with its 418 guestrooms boasting river views. Guests can expect all the luxurious Shangri-La amenities, including wireless internet, business center, numerous dining options, health club, spa and swimming pools. This former backpackers mecca in southeastern China will no doubt be transformed by the arrival of a five star hotel by Asia's leading luxury hotel group.
