Elephant Trunk Hill (象鼻山)

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 (榕杉湖)

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.

Longji rice terraces (龙脊梯田)

The ingenious Longji rice terraces have been built up on the ridges between the river and mountaintops over centuries, rising nearly 500 meters at the highest point. In Chinese "Longji" means "Dragon's Backbone". The coiling line spirals up the mountain like an enormous dragon, making the most of limited arable land and water resources. The Terraces date all the way back to the Yuan Dynasty (1271–1368 AD).

Guilin–Yangshuo Li-River Cruise (漓江游船)

There's no better way to experience the incredible karst mountain vistas of Guilin than a boat trip to Yangshuo. A Li 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.

West Street (西街)

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.

Big Banyan Tree & Moon Hill (大榕树)

The Big Banyan Tree towers some 17 m (56 ft) and is estimated to be as much as 1,500 years old. Visit Moon Hill to see 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.

Reed Flute Cave (芦笛岩)

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.
