Gotta see it to believe it!

Guilin is home to some of the most breathtaking landscapes in all of China and although you could stare into its horizon for hours, we recommend you link up with a guide to take it to the next level. After being picked up at the cruise pier or your hotel, we will take you right to Reed Flute Cave. This incredible water-eroded spectacle was created by carbonate deposits and stretches 240 meters long. The inside is illuminated by colored lighting that may have you thinking you are walking amongst a place of Gods. Each formation has a unique Chinese name with a legend to go along with it. Your camera won't do this justice!

The journey of one-of-a-kind landscapes continues at Elephant Trunk Hill, just off the Li River. With the shape of the hill representing a huge elephant drinking from the river, you will quickly understand its very literal name. Multiple caves make up the different body parts from the eyes to the trunk and legs. On the top of the hill, you'll find a pagoda that rests on the elephant's back--the symbol of Guilin.

Surrounded by mountains and along the Li River, you will come across Daxu Old Town. This ancient street was developed by the Ming and Qing dynasties with stone streets that carve their way to historic temples, tempting markets, and old docks that make for some of the most picturesque spots in the area.
