East or west, Guilin...is best.

套用俗语East or west, home is best.好是好,可是桂林在中国南方,与东西有点不配,不能不说是一点遗憾。

when the author borrowed from the well known idiom "east or west, home is best", he failed to notice that some "homesick" feeling, or yearning, has been carried over to his new sentence and made his new sentence more emotional than observational.

also, Wu's use of landscape is a failure. the word landscape makes an unnatural image for the truly natural geographical objects-- mountains and waters. an alternative word is scenery, or natural scenery.
