Meet at Guilin Airport and transfer to your hotel. After a short break, visit Elephant Trunk Hill, and then visit Reed Flute Cave. After that, we will stay in a hotel in the city.
Elephant Trunk Hill is located on the bank of the Li River. It’s so-named because it looks like a elephant drinking water on the bank of the Li River. It is a symbol of karst mountain topography in Guilin.
Reed Flute Cave is the biggest and most beautiful limestone cave. It has been dubbed “nature’s palace” where you can see magnificent stalactites, stalagmites and all kinds of limestone shapes carved out by water.
DAY 2: Li River Cruise from Guilin—Yangshuo.
We will meet at the hotel at 8:00 and then drive you to Zhu Jiang Pier. It takes four and a half hours to cruise to Yangshuo from Guilin.

Have lunch onboard and disembark in Yangshuo at around 1:00 pm. Visit West Street which is lined with old buildings, but also has a cosmopolitan modern feel. Watch cormorant catching fish at night on the Li River and stay in a Yangshuo hotel.
DAY 3: Yangshuo countryside Tour by bicycle.
Ride a bicycle to the Yulong River in the morning during which we will pass villages and you can feast your eyes on the beautiful landscape. As you pass paddy fields and buffalos you can see how the local farmers work and live. Then move on to Moon Hill which is the symbol of Yangshuo. You can also climb up to the peak where you will have a panoramic view of that area.
Have lunch in a farmers’ restaurant at the foot of Moon Hill. After that, ride a bike to the ancient Big Banyan Tree in the afternoon. Go back to Yangshuo on a small trail.
