About Guilin Local Tour

Fan Chengda, a poet of the Song Dynasty (960-1279), claimed in one of his famous poems that the peak forest landscape in Guilin is "Unparalleled on Earth". You may wonder whether a city deserves such an honor, but if you have a chance to visit Guilin one day, you will believe it. You can see the perfectly developed tropical tower Karst in different shapes, such as elephants, camels, horses, lions, lotuses or even hairpins. All that you need is just a bit of imagination.

TOUR ITINERARY

GWAC-GL-01
Day Activities Hotel
DAY 01 Arrive in Guilin

You will fly to Guilin, which is located in Guangxi province of southern China. Famous people and poets down through the centuries have eulogized Guilin’s scenery. It really has to be seen to be believed. The mountains are so sheer they come vertically out of the ground, as Guilin has some of the most spectacular karst topography in the world. The tooth-like limestone mountains come in clusters, or as isolated monoliths or mesas, often with caves, and sometimes with holes all the way through, like Elephant Hill and Moon Hill in Yangshuo.

Upon your arrival at the airport you will be met by your English-speaking guide, and from the airport you will be taken to your hotel. If there is time available, your guide will take you on a city tour to show you the major points of interest in the city, which includes all the wonderful topography.

DAY 02 Li River-Yangshuo-Guilin (B, L)

Today you will be cruising down one of the world’s most stunning rivers, the Li. Gorgeous karst peaks give you surprises at each bend of the limpid river under the blue sky. Water buffalo patrol the fields, peasants reap rice paddies, school children and fisherman float by on bamboo rafts. With its breathtaking scenery and taste of a life far removed from the concrete metropolis, the scenery along the Li River become one of China's top tourist destinations. Some of the highlights you will see on your 7-8hour cruise will be Elephant Trunk Hill, a hill resembling an Elephant taking water from its trunk, Pagoda Hill, just a few minutes away from the Elephant Trunk Hill, Daxu Town, an ancient river town, and of course you will also see local fisherman and workers over their normal course of work. The cruise down the Li River offers a fascinating insight into the lives of the local population here.

We’ll then make the short drive back to Guilin, and before taking you back to your hotel, we’ll stop for a bit at the Reed Flute Cave. The Reed Flute Cave (Ludi Yan) is a fascinating gallery of natural sculpture (limestone cave formations), now enhanced by multicolored lighting, which has been one of Guilin’s many interesting attractions for over 1200 years. It rates as one of the top four tourist sites in the city. The cave is about 240 meters long and a tour lasts about one hour. Along the u-shaped route, you will have ample time see the oddly shaped rocks and stone pillars while the guide narrates interesting stories about them. Illuminated by the colored lights, the cave looks like a dazzling underground palace. That’s why the cave is also known as the Nature’s Art Palace.

You’ll then be taken back to your hotel, where the night can be spent at your own discretion.

3 or 4 star for common; 5 star for deluxe
DAY 03 Guilin-departure

Before your departure from Guilin, you’ll be able to experience some of the other attractions that make this city so memorable. Following breakfast at the hotel we’ll head out to the Elephant Trunk Hill. Located at the confluence of the Li River and Peach Blossom River in the south central area of Guilin City, it looks like a huge elephant stretching its trunk and drinking water, hence the name. Elephant Trunk Hill is the symbol of Guilin and its karst landscape.

Then it is off to the Seven Star cave park. Seven Star cave got its name for the seven peaks supposed to resemble the star pattern of the Big Dipper constellation nearby - four peaks in the north are called Putuo Hill, three in the south are called Lunar Hill. The famous Seven Star cave is just located at the halfway the Putuo Hill. The cave is famous for its stalactites of various shapes inside. The cave is divided into three parts. The upper part is so high and steep that one can hardly reach while the lower part is an underground river channel. The middle part, an 814-meter-long tunnel, with the widest place of 49 meters and the highest of 27 meters, serves as the main touring area. Since Sui and Tang dynasties, the cave has been a favorite tour resort, and many visiting poets, writers, scholars and nobles once left their inscriptions on the wall.

You will then be taken to the Guilin airport, where you will fly on to your next destination.
