P-BJGUILIN2


Day 1 :  Beijing-Guilin (by air) (L, D)


At about 5:45 am your private driver will meet you at your hotel and drive you to the Beijing airport for your flight too Guilin, which is located in Guangxi province of southern China. Famous people and poets down through the centuries have eulogized Guilin’s scenery. It really has to be seen to be believed. The mountains are so sheer they come vertically out of the ground, as Guilin has some of the most spectacular karst topography in the world. The tooth-like limestone mountains come in clusters, or as isolated monoliths or mesas, often with caves, and sometimes with holes all the way through, like Elephant Hill and Moon Hill in Yangshuo. The flight will take about 3 hrs, and upon arrival you'll be met by your guide and driver.

After a lunch of local cuisine we'll get started on your tour by going to Elephant Trunk Hill. Located at the confluence of the Li River and Peach Blossom River in the south central area of Guilin City, it looks like a huge elephant stretching its trunk and drinking water, hence the name. Elephant Trunk Hill is the symbol of Guilin and its karst landscape.

Afterward we'll go to explore Reed Flute Cave. The Reed Flute Cave (Ludi Yan) is a fascinating gallery of natural sculpture (limestone cave formations), now enhanced by multicolored lighting, which has been one of Guilin’s many interesting attractions for over 1200 years. It rates as one of the top four tourist sites in the city. The cave is about 240 meters long and a tour lasts about one hour. Along the u-shaped route, you will have ample time see the oddly shaped rocks and stone pillars while the guide narrates interesting stories about them. Illuminated by the colored lights, the cave looks like a dazzling underground palace. That’s why the cave is also known as the Nature’s Art Palace.

Following dinner at 5:30 you'll be taken to a popular lookout point that will give you a magnificent view of the city at night. You'll then be taken back to your hotel for the evening. (3 or 4-star hotel).

 

Day 2: Guilin-Yangshuo-Guilin-Beijing (by air) (B, L)

Today you will be cruising down one of the world’s most stunning rivers, the Li. Gorgeous karst peaks give you surprises at each bend of the limpid river under the blue sky. Water buffalo patrol the fields, peasants reap rice paddies, school children and fisherman float by on bamboo rafts. With its breathtaking scenery and taste of a life far removed from the concrete metropolis, the scenery along the Li River become one of China's top tourist destinations. Some of the highlights you will see on your 7-8hour cruise will be Elephant Trunk Hill, a hill resembling an Elephant taking water from its trunk, Pagoda Hill, just a few minutes away from the Elephant Trunk Hill, Daxu Town, an ancient river town, and of course you will also see local fisherman and workers over their normal course of work. The cruise down the Li River offers a fascinating insight into the lives of the local population here.

Our cruise will terminate at Yangshuo, a lush and exotic county that includes minority groups from all over Asia. You’ll have some time to explore the city and do some gift-hunting. After a little bit you'll be driven back to Guilin and the airport for your flight back to Beijing. You'll be met at the airport by your guide and driver and will take you back to your hotel.
