Travel content

Have you ever imagined China as a country with rice paddies and farmers wearing straw hats? That's Guilin! Located in southwestern China, it's one of the most enchanting places in the world according to many travelers.

The limestone karst peaks along the Li River create a magnificent fantasy landscape. Their fantastic shapes have inspired whimsical names, such as 'Looking out for Husband Rock', and their beauty has been immortalized by many a writer and artist. Guilin also gives travelers the chance to experience the village life of ethnic minorities in the countryside. In spring, the fresh green of newly planted rice paddies, light mists over the Li River and gentle spring drizzle all give Guilin a poetic appeal. Autumn is also very pleasant and, for those who don't mind a bit of heat or cold, even summer and winter offer great times in Guilin, where the matchless scenery and cultural delights always await you.

Travel Itinerary

    Beijing / Shanghai - Guilin
    • Flight to Guilin. Upon arrival at noon, your travel guide will meet you at the airport. Then visit Elephant Trunk Hill (Xiangbi Shan), one of Guilin's well-known landmarks, a limestone peak within the city. It actually looks like an elephant drinking from the Li River.
    • Visit Reed Flute Cave, named after the reeds that formerly grew at the cave's entrance, from which, locals made flutes. The huge stalactite cave can hold about 1,000 people and was used during WWII as an air-raid shelter. Now, huge concert lights reveal its fantastic interior.

  • Day 2:
    Guilin - Longsheng - Guilin (B L)

The fields are situated along the slope winding from the riverside up to the mountain top, the highest part being 880 meters in elevation while the lowest part is at 380 meters, providing superb vistas. The terraced fields were mostly built during the Ming Dynasty, about 500 years ago.
