The Location:

The School of Modern English is located in downtown Guilin, in Guangxi Province. It is an amazingly beautiful, safe, and friendly city, nestled in a vast surrounding countryside. You can get a feel for the area in the 360-degree aerial panoramas provided in the link below. The first 3 were taken outside of Guilin and range from a 20-45 minute drive from the main ME campus. The 4th panorama is of downtown Guilin, taken approximately 2 blocks from our school:

The cost of living is very low in Guilin compared to most of China, and a rule of thumb is that if something costs 1 USD in the states, it will cost about 1.5 RMB in Guilin (current exchange rate: 1 USD = 6.3 RMB). On average, most ex-pats in Guilin tend to live well off of 3,000 RMB (478 USD) per month, while most locals spend less than 500 RMB (80 USD) per month on living expenses. For a more information on Guilin, the following link to the Chinese Language Institute (CLI) provides a nice description of the city, along with testimonials from foreign students studying Chinese language in Guilin.

Guilin is also only a 1.5-hour bus ride from Yangshuo, which is considered by many to be the backpacker´s mecca of China. Every outdoor activity imaginable is available in Yangshuo, from rock climbing to cave exploration to white-water rafting.
