What You Can Expect

Guilin Half Day Tour including Li River, Reed Flute Cave and Elephant Hill

Reed Flute Caves, Guilin

Guilin and the nearby Li River display some of the most unique and beautiful terrain in all of China. This half-day tour showcases some of the geographic and cultural highlights in the city of Guilin itself.

Your adventure starts at Fubo Hill which has both natural beauty and historic art. Beginning in the Tang Dynasty, local artisans created intricate carvings and elegant stone Buddhas. From here it's on to Reed Flute Cave to see the impressive natural beauty of its stalactite and stalagmite formations. Locals call this cave the "Palace of Natural Arts," for reasons you'll soon discover. Next will be a stop at a local pearl market for rest, refreshments and shopping.

Then you will visit the centerpiece of Guilin's riverside park, Elephant Hill. Nature created this marvel some 3.5 million years ago and its shape resembles an elephant drinking water through its trunk. Finish your tour with a vigorous climb up the hill to take in the panoramic scenery of the city, river and surrounding countryside.

We were contacted personally in our hotel by the tour company to confirm our trip which was very good. We really enjoyed our trip which was led by a Chinese guide who had studied tourism and English at university.
