This half-day tour takes you around to Guilin’s most amazing tourist sites, including the Reed Flute Cave, Fubo Hill, and the symbolic Elephant Hill Park.
What You Can Expect:
It is a bus tour, so your guide will go to several hotels to pick up other clients. The pick-up time is between 7am and 8am, after which your first stop will be the Reed Flute Cave.
The Reed Flute Cave is located about five kilometers northwest of downtown Guilin, the Reed Flute Cave is a brilliant cave marked on almost all travel itineraries. The cave got its name from the verdant reeds growing outside it, with which people make flutes. Inside this water-eroded cave is a spectacular world of various stalactites, stone pillars and rock formations created by carbonate deposition. Walking through the serried stone pillars, tourists feast their eyes on changing spots, feeling they are in a paradise where the Gods live.
After your visit to Reed Flute Cave, we will take you to Fubo Hill, half of which stretches into the river. The waves of the river are turned back when they meet the stone blocks of the hill, hence the name "wave-subduing hill" when Fubo Hill is translated into English.
Next stop is Elephant Trunk Hill Park, which is situated majestically at the southeast of Guilin city and west bank of Li River and is regarded as the symbol of Guilin landscape. Resembling an elephant leisurely sucking water from the river with its long trunk, this hill is famous as Elephant Trunk Hill for hundreds of years.
After this we will bring you back to your hotel with the rest of the day on your own arrangement.
