Regarded as ‘Paradise on Earth’, Guilin has long been renowned for its unique scenery. This well-designed tour will take you to enjoy the highlights of the city. The Li River Cruise will show you a fabulous “Chinese landscape painting”. The Reed Flute Cave, Seven Star Park and the city’s symbol - Elephant Trunk Hill are included in the itinerary.
When you arrive at the airport of Guilin, you will find that our English-speaking guide is waiting for you outside the baggage claim area. Then you will be transferred to the selected hotel. The rest of the day remains free for you to have a good rest or explore the city. After dinner by yourself, we suggest you to take a walk along Bin Jiang Road where you could enjoy the beautiful night scenery of the city.
After breakfast, our driver and guide will pick you up at your hotel. Then we will take you to enjoy an unforgettable cruise along Li River to Yangshuo, which is truly a highlight for your wonderful trip. The river trip is over 83 kilometers (52 miles) long and is estimated to take four to five hours. On the clean, comfortable and classy cruise boat, we will see the karst landscape beautifully complimented by the Li River. Numerous verdant hills and grotesque peaks are mirrored on the crystal-clear water, just like a beautiful Chinese landscape painting. At noon, we have to provide you a set lunch on the cruise which can not meet our serving standards. We kindly suggest you have a larger breakfast at the hotel this morning. Upon arrival in Yangshuo, you will enjoy a short bicycle trip at the view of the splendid sceneries. Alternatively, we will transfer you there instead of riding bicycles. In order to learn about the local lifestyle, we will visit a local villager's home. Then return to Guilin by our private transfer.

This morning excursion will start with the Reed Flute Cave, regarded as the largest and most impressive cave in Guilin. Walking in the water-eroded cave, you will find a marvelous world of stalactites, stone columns, stone curtains and stone flowers. Under the colored lights, the cave looks more spectacular, just like a paradise where the Gods live. Then we will depart for the Seven Star Park, the largest complex park in Guilin City. The Seven Star Park gets its name from the seven peaks which distribute in the form of the Big Dipper constellation. The Seven Star Cave, one of the highlights of the park, is worthy visiting for its dazzling array of stalagmites and stalactites. Our tour will be extended to Elephant Trunk Hill, the notable symbol of Guilin. It is so named because it looks like a giant elephant drinking water with its trunk on the Li River bank. The hill is pierced with many caves and topped with a small pagoda. To conclude your wonderful Guilin tour, we will see you off at the airport for your return flight. Wish you a pleasant trip home!
