Day 1 Guilin Arrival, Highlights Tour

Meals included: Upon your request

Welcome to Guilin! Famous for its unique natural beauty and profound cultural background, Guilin has been one of the most popular scenic destinations in the world.

After landing, take your time to get out of the plane and to the arrival hall, where your private guide is patiently waiting for you with your name plate and will give you a warm welcome. Then transfer to your hotel in downtown. Your guide will help you in the check-in procedures, so that you can have more time for a break.

(14:00-17:30) Transfer to visit Elephant Trunk Hill, a huge stone elephant is sucking water from Li River. Between the elephant trunk and the elephant leg is a about 150-square-meters round hole, resembling a bright moon floating on the river by night. The main attractions of Elephant Trunk Hill are the moon cave, Puxian Pagoda, Hongfeng Temple and the Stupa dating back to Sui and Tang dynasties (581 - 907).

Next, drive northwest to Reed Flute Cave (7 km away, about 20 minutes' drive). The cave is 240 meters deep and 500 meters long, and hailed as "the palace of natural art". Apart from the spectacle of various gorgeous and exquisite stalactite, stalagmite, stone pillars, stone curtains and stone flowers, there are also valuable ancient frescos for you to admire.

After a half day tour, transfer back to your hotel. For the evening time, you may relax at the hotel, or take a night cruise trip.

You may want to know:

  • Chinese sedan chair experience on Reed Flute Cave – There are steps to the entrance, besides normally an-hour walking is needed inside the cave for sightseeing. So if you really want to visit it but lack of physical strength, you may book the Chinese sedan chair service. Consult with your CCT travel advisor for details.

Suggestion for night activities:

  • “Two Rivers and Four Lakes” night cruise – a cruise trip around the central water system, with which you can appreciate the beautiful night scene of Guilin, pass by the spectacular Golden and Silver Twin Pagodas and several elegant bridges. (Please be noted that our services do not include any night activities, yet your tour guide will be very glad to book it for you if needed)

Recommended hotels in Guilin:

  • Shangri La Guilin - luxury five star rated, but about a 10 minute drive away from the downtown
  • Sheraton Hotel - five star rated, old but good location in downtown, right next to Li River
  • Bravo Hotel - 4 star rated, nice location in downtown and neighboring Ronghu Lake

Day 2 Cruise to Yangshuo, West Street, Departure

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch

(08:00-09:30) After breakfast, meet your guide at the hotel lobby. Then drive (private vehicle) about 40 minutes to get to Zhujiang Pier, the starting point of Li River Cruise.

Your guide will embark with you. Be seated. For your comfort, we can arrange you the luxury river ship with best upper seats if available. The cruise trip will last for about 4.5 hours.

Li River Cruise is definitely a must-have when traveling in Guilin, and suitable for all ages. You may have an illusion that you are sitting or standing in a picture, of clear blue sky (in sunny days, if it is rains in spring, then maybe clouded by mist), water reflecting the karst landscape of hills, connecting with the paddy or vegetable fields. Don’t miss the top attractions such as Nine-horse Fresco Hill and Yellow Cloth Shoal. Have a Chinese buffet lunch on board.

(14:00-16:00) Disembark in Yangshuo, then you come to the edge of West Street, blending the new and the old. The 1-km-long West Street is a perfect place to relax and have a leisure stroll, with traditional buildings, and many themed boutique shops, restaurants, bars and guesthouses.

Your Guilin & Yangshuo trip ends. Your private guide and driver will escort you to the airport or railway station. Your guide will help you at the Check-in Counter, and walk you to the security pass. Say goodbye and service ends.

Important notes:

  • During the low season from late January to February, the itinerary of Li River cruise changes a bit. It starts at Yangdi wharf, finished at Nine-horse Fresco Hill, and then back to Yangdi. The whole trip lasts for around 2.5 hours.
