Day one of your tour of Guilin and Yangshuo starts off easing you in, when our English speaking driver and tour guide pick you up at the airport.
For a better experience, it is recommended you take the earlier arrival time. Feel free to ask your tour guide questions along the way.
From the airport, we'll escort you to your first destination and visit the Elephant Trunk Hill, an iconic landmark of Guilin, being a popular tourist attraction since the Tang and Song Period.
Legend has it that the elephant was once the elephant of a great emperor who was stranded at Guilin after battle.
It is believed that a couple found the elephant hurt in Guilin. They took care of it until it was strong enough to return back to the emperor. According to legend, the elephant was so enamoured by Guilin to the point where his prime motivation was primed to stay in the city.
After his full recovery, the elephant told the emperor of his decision to stay. The emperor then respected the elephant's wishes and blessed the elephant with a pagoda for protection.
Today the elephant is named after its silhouette and how it looks strikingly similar to an elephant drinking water from the river; naturally formed over 3.5 million years.
After taking a closer look, we move onto our next stop: Reed Flute Cave.
Located in the northwest of Guilin City, 5 km from the city center, Reed Flute Cave was discovered in 1959 and is over 240 meters deep.
Inside this water-eroded cave is a hidden world of various stalactites, stone pillars and rock formations created by carbonate deposition.
The cave is illuminated by colored lighting, a truly unique lighting environment rendered in many variations throughout 240-meters.
Your tour guide will then take you to the famous pearl shop en route, then to dinner.
