Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
If your pick-up location is not within the scoop of definition, your guide will meet you at an appointed place and transfer you back to the same location after the tour ends, or you can pay additional car charge for pickup and drop-off service from your hotel.

Departure Time

8:30 AM
Receive a morning pickup from your Guilin-area hotel and meet your guide, after which you’ll transfer to the Guilin Zoo to observe the feeding habits of the park’s resident Giant pandas. The early hours of the day are the best chance to see these sleepy creatures while active.

Leaving the zoo behind, travel by air-conditioned car to the Reed Flute Caves 3 miles (5 kilometers) outside the city center. You’ll spend one hour wandering along a path that cuts through the cave, observing the collections of rock formations like pillars, colored lights, stalagmites, and stalactites.

After your trip to the caves, proceed to Mt. Yao, where you’ll board a cable car for an included ride along the 4,593-foot (1,400-meter) span. Depending on the season you’ll likely observe blossoming Azalea trees in the spring or fiery-red maples in the fall. Enjoy the views from the top and check out several historic monuments including the Yao Emperor Temple. Leave the mountaintop and proceed back to the base on the cable car, or choose to return on foot on the .6-mile (1-kilometer) foot path passing through local forests and a scenic stream.

Back in Guilin, you’ll visit the South China Pearl Museum, offering a chance to learn about the region’s longstanding connection to the pearl industry. Then head to Riyue Shuangta Cultural Park, where you can explore this green space’s collection of pagodas, lakes, gardens, and historic bridges. The Sun and Moon Pagodas in the middle of the lake are worth a special visit. After your trip to the park, you’ll receive a ride back to your Guilin hotel.

Reed Flute Cave (Ludi Yan)
You will leave the city center by air-conditioned car to visit the Reed Flute Caves, just 3 miles (5 kilometers) from the downtown area. Once inside the caves, you will walk along a good path for about one hour and enjoy the variety of shapes of the stalactites, stone pillars, and rock formations all illuminated by colored lighting creating a surreal subterranean landscape.
Duration: 1 hour

Stop At:  
Guilin Yaoshan Mountain Scenic Resort
After leaving the caves, you will continue to Mt. Yao (Yaoshan Mountain) for a cable car ride to the top from where you will be rewarded with a panoramic view of the whole area around Guilin. The scene that welcomes you will change depending on the season with azaleas covering the surrounding hillsides in spring and red foliage of maple trees in autumn. In addition, with the spectacular 4,593 feet (1,400 meters) long cable car ride, you can also visit several historic sites on the mountain such as the Yao Emperor Temple built at the top of the mountain during Tang Dynasty. You may return to the foot of the mountain by the same cable car or the winding trail for about 3,280 feet (1 kilometer) that weaves through forests and meadows and past many small streams.
Duration: 1 hour

Stop At:  
Riyue Shuangta Cultural Park
Returning to Guilin, you will have the chance to experience the serene beauty of this city at Riyue Shuangta Cultural Park located right in the heart of the city. Here, you can stroll through the parklands and take a boat-ride on the lakes around the gardens passing by many replica bridges and pagodas. The park is also the location of the Sun and Moon Pagodas that stand in the middle of the lake. In fact, the name, Riyue Shuangta, in Chinese literally means Sun and Moon Towers. The Sun Tower is made from copper whilst the moon tower is made from a material similar to stained glass. There are many rooms with statues and thangkas to be seen inside the towers, but the most spectacular view of them is from the outside in the evening as the sun goes down and the towers reflect the glow of the fading light. After visiting the Riyue Shuangta you will be transferred back to your hotel for the end of your tour.
