Besides Elephant Trunk Hill, next in this Guilin day tour we also could visit another representative hill called Fubo Hill. There is a garden at the south foot of the Fubo Hill. The garden is a quite interesting place with full of bamboos, palm trees and flower. At the foot of Fubo Hill, we did visit a cave where we could see the Thousand Buddha Cave which boasts over 200 Buddha’s statues made during the Tang Dynasty.

Explore Best China Karsts Landscapes in Guilin by Werner


A trip to Guilin was really memorable and enjoyable. We did enjoy the whole trip itinerary from the start till the end. Pick up and drop off service were so nice and accommodating too. Private tour is really suitable for us. I visited China with my families, in total of 6 people of us. First, we arrived at Beijing then transfer to Guilin by air. Arrived at the airport, the staff picked us up at the airport then transfer you the hotel that we booked by ourselves.

YangshuoLi River to Yangshuo Cruise Tour

The trip in Guilin took us to visit lots of interesting and famous landscapes around the city include a cruise to Yangshuo. The cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo along Li River was so relaxing and interesting. A short trip with lunch aboard, we would able to enjoy stunning views along the river. Clear and deep river, fresh air and luxury cruise facilities make our journey more comfortable and fun. We took lots of photos as memories although the sky was not clear enough but the panorama still the best.

A trip to Yangshuo, I personally think is the highlight of the tour. Wished could stay longer in that small town near Guilin. Interesting local custom, stunning natural landscapes, friendly local people, authentic daily life and many others aspect of Yangshuo attracts me to stay and explore more. Yangshuo is kind of a tourist town surrounded by beautiful karsts landscapes. The air still fresh, no pollution and the environment is also so peaceful, less crowded.

Come to Guilin I should recommend take the cruise to Yangshuo and stay longer there. Nice vacation that you could have there. Poorly, we only have limited time in China, so we can just stay in Guilin 2 days. But all that we had and experienced there are memorable and priceless. Besides visited Yangshuo, we also did enjoy the unique landscapes of Guilin. Tour guide transferred us to Elephant Trunk Hill, Reed Flute Cave, and Fubo Hill. All of that attractions are offers incredible and breathtaking sceneries. Reed Flute Cave is a hilarious and huge cave with colorful LED lighting. It makes the stalagmites inside that cave colorful and more beautiful. My first experience saw that kind of cave.

At the end of the tour, we did feel satisfied about all the service and greatly thanks to all the staff who help us arranged this tour.
