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 Buddha’s. 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 centrepiece 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.

Our hotel was pretty close to Elephant Hill so we really chose this primarily for the Reed Flute Cave. We were not disappointed at all. Even though we had high expectations of the Reed Flute Cave, we were still incredibly impressed.
