Day 1 Guilin airport pickup

Elephant Trunk Hill (Xiàngbí Shān, 象鼻山) (about 40 minutes)

One of the most famous is Guilin's Elephant Trunk Hill, a striking natural arch that juts out into the Li River, bearing a clear resemblance to an elephant dipping its trunk into the water.

Banyan Lake and Fir Lake (Róng Shān Hú, 榕杉湖) (about 1 hour)

Once protected the city and its people from hostile intruders, today it's simply a beautiful place to relax and enjoy some of Guilin's most beautiful views.

Stay overnight at the Guilin Bravo Hotel or Guilin Park.

Day 2 Guilin-Yangshuo (includes lunch)

Guilin–Yangshuo river cruise (Lí Jiāng Yóuchuán, 漓江游船) (about 4 hours)

There's no better way to experience the incredible karst mountain vistas of Guilin than a boat trip to Yangshuo. A Li River cruise takes between three and five hours and offers a chance to take in Guilin, Xingping and Yangshuo's spectacular scenery in a relaxed setting. Guests are free to walk about the boat and admire the scenery from any angle they desire. Most boats have a restaurant floor at water level and a sightseeing deck above that. A packed lunch will be served on board.

* Please note: Guilin-Yangshuo River Cruise is based on a group river cruise, you'll share the boat with other passengers during the cruise.

West Street (Xī Jiē, 西街) (about 1 hour)

West Street is Yangshuo's primary tourist magnet. This cobbled street of wooden shop fronts and laziness-inducing restaurants is bursting with a quaint charm that attracts visitors from around the globe. Although recently renovated to cope with the ever-increasing tourist foot and bicycle traffic, the street still retains its an old China charm.

Next, visit the Big Banyan Tree, which towers some 17 m (56 ft) and is estimated to be as much as 1,500 years old. Finally visit Moon Hill to see the intriguing hole found halfway up a mountain that resembles a full moon. You'll view it from different angles and see how it waxes and wanes, just like the real moon.

In the evening, why not enjoy Impressions Sanjie-Liu show (Yìnxiàng Liúsānjiě, 印象刘三姐), a spectacular show with over 600 performers, live animals, and spectacular lighting effects all performed on the Li River with the majestic limestone mountains as the back drop (additional fee applies).

Stay overnight at the Yangshuo China Town Hotel (West Mingshi Garden) or New West Street Hotel.

Day 3 Yangshuo-Guilin departure

Reed Flute Cave (Lúdí Yán, 芦笛岩) (about 1 hour)

Reed Flute Cave is just a 15 to 20 minute drive northwest of the downtown area. The cave's serpentine depths wind about within Guangming Mountain and feature some remarkable rock formations.

After lunch, you'll be transferred to the airport/station for departure.

* Please note: We recommend you book a flight arriving in Guilin before 3:00 p.m. / leaving Guilin after 1:00 p.m.
