Board on flight from Hong Kong to Guilin by yourself, but after your flight lands at Guilin Liangjiang International Airport, your personal tour guide, driver and car will be ready and waiting to pick you up, transfer to your hotel and help you with check-in. You have some free time for the rest of the day. Feel free to ask your tour guide for recommendations for walking around, dining or shopping, if you are interested in exploring the city a bit by yourself.
Walking inside Reed Flute Cave is like visiting a magic world of stalactites, stalagmites, stone pillars and stone curtains in fantastic shapes and colors. The visit lasts for 40 minutes walking along the 500-meter-long sightseeing route with many steps.
Elephant Trunk Hill is the symbol of Guilin City. Its shape resembles an elephant with its trunk drinking from the Li River. Float slowly on Li River by bamboo raft to Fubo Hill, and climb over 350 steps to the top and enjoy a bird’s eye view over the city. The last stop for today is to see the cuddly Giant Pandas at Seven Star Park. Stay overnight in Guilin.
Transfer to Zhujiang Pier about 40 minutes’ drive from city area to board on Li River cruise.
A cruise along the Li River between Guilin and Yangshuo is an unforgettable experience. As you take in the stunning scenery, there's something interesting to see at almost every bend in the river. Between spectacular limestone peaks you'll see graceful bamboo groves, farmers tending rice paddies, and lumbering water buffaloes pulling carts or cooling off in the river.
The cruise takes about 4 hours depending on the water level and weather condition. A simple buffet lunch is provided onboard, but it does not meet our standard. You are suggested to take a big breakfast, or ask your hotel to pack lunch boxes for you at extra cost.
Free time in the afternoon for your own exploration. Many interesting activities can be arranged in Yangshuo to enrich your travel experience, like learning calligraphy, Taichi practice, Chinese cooking class, etc. Feel free to ask your travel advisor or tour guide for advice. Stay overnight in Yangshuo.
You can choose to ride a bike or an electric golf style cart to see Yangshuo’s idyllic countryside. As you ride pass the paddy field and orchards that surround the famous mountains, you will take in the beautiful view and a fascinating insight into life in rural China. Drop by a local farmer’s house on the way, and the host will be happy to introduce to you his daily life.
As the tour concludes, transfer from Yangshuo to Guilin Liangjiang International Flight back to Hong Kong. Your tour guide will assist you with check-in and luggage, and accompany you till the point of security check to wave goodbye.
