Location

Guilin is a small, but beautiful city in the southern part of China. Compared to other cities in China, Guilin is less populated with a population just approaching a million people. The city is known for its scenic spots, marvelous hills, clean rivers, peach blossoms, and amazing rice terraces. It's only one of the few cities in China with ethnic minorities. Located in China's Guangxi Region, Guilin is in close proximity to Hong Kong and Guangzhou. 

Campus Facilities

CLI has a 5-story center which includes 18 private classrooms, several study areas, and a full kitchen and dining area. The CLI campus also has 3 stories of private bedrooms (each with a full private bathroom), and a recreational room equipped with a pingpong table, electric piano, and mahjong table.

Campus Life

In addition to a fun learning environment inside the classroom, CLI schedules extracurricular activities for students. This may be in the form of incursions, field trips, culture immersions, games and sports fest and many more.
