Tour Itinerary

Day 1 Guilin Arrival (L, D)

Your tour guide and driver will be waiting for your arrival at Guilin airport or railway station, and then transfer you to your hotel in downtown Guilin. After hotel check-in and freshen up, drive to visit the highlights in Guilin – Reed Flute Cave, Yao Mountain and West Hill. Reed Flute Cave is a brilliant cave marked on almost all travel itineraries. Yao Mountain is the highest hill (903.3 meters above sea level) in Guilin. It offers very different views in each season. You can easily get to the top of it by the 1,416 meters long cable car and get a wonderful view of the peaks and surrounds. West Hill is one of the most famous hills in Guilin. But it is always non-touristy and not like the other crowded scenic spots in the town. Lunch is in a good local restaurant where you will have a good chance to try Guilin cuisine. Return to your hotel in late afternoon. After dinner, have a relaxing walk around Guilin Central Lakes area to enjoy the colorful city.

    Hi there,
    My partner and I are currently working in Hangzhou and will have some time at the end of August to travel. We are hoping to travel some time between August 18th and August 30th. The 6-day Guilin, Yangshuo & Longji Hiking Tour looks good to us and we are wondering about the pricing of this tour based on economy (3-star) hotels. Thank you!
