    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Daxu Old Town, Daxu Old Street, Guilin China

    Time: 9:30-13:30

    This village called Xiongcun, has a history of more than 1,000 years. It was a very busy town in the past but its popularity faded as time went by. The original prosperity has been replaced with old houses, mossy stone steps, and elderly villagers who retell the village’s ancient stories.In this village, you’ll see the well-kept traditional Chinese residential culture. You’ll have the chance to visit a local family’s home and experience their peaceful lifestyle. Witnessing the lifestyle of the villagers will make you feel as though you have traveled back in time by several hundred years.

    After 20-minute driving from Daxu, you’ll arrive at a rebuilt village name Li Water Family (Li Shui Ren Jia). It is near the mountains and nearby an important tributary (Chao Tian River) of the Li River. This village preserves the old dwellings style of Northen Guangxi. You may also see many handicrafts here, like pressing old with a flying hammer, weaving cotton cloth, forging iron, making wine, etc. As the city develops, some of handicrafts are dying out. Fortunately, these intangible cultural heritages are protected and inherited at Li Shui Ren Jia.

    You can try one of handicrafts which is free. But if you want to do more deep experiences like potting, making dried bean milk cream, tie-dyed fabric, ect, that would be optional and pay on your own expense. Free free to ask the tour guide if you have any questions.

    Have a lunch at a local restaurant here. You’ll have a chance to taste some locals’ favorite daily dishes.

    Duration: 4 hours

    Stop At: Reed Flute Cave (Ludi Yan), 0773-2695075, Guilin 541001 China

    Time: 14:30-16:30

    Visit the most famous cave in Guilin — Reed Flute Cave. It is called a “natural art museum” due to the numerous beautiful stalactites and stalagmites inside it.

    Decorated with colorful spotlights and with intriguing shadows cast across the cave’s small pool, it’s as though you are looking at a beautiful Chinese painting. A karst cave on such a great scale as this and with such beautiful natural formations is a rare natural phenomenon in the world.

    Now Reed Flute Cave has become a calling card of Guilin. More than 180 international heads of state and politicians have visited this cave, including two former presidents of the United States, Nixon and Carter.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Gunanmen, China, Guangxi Zhuangzuzizhiqu, Guilin Shi, Xiufeng Qu, 榕萌路

    Time: 17:00-18:00

    You can enjoy a walk around the city’s water system — Two Rivers and Four Lakes.

    The two rivers in the name relate to Guilin’s two major rivers running through the city: the Li River and the Peach Blossom River. The four lakes in the name refer to the four major lakes in the city: Ronghu (Banyan Lake), Shahu (Chinese Fir Lake), Guihu (Osmanthus Lake), and Mulonghu (Wood Dragon Lake). These rivers and lakes are linked together in a circuit.

    Your walk will begin at Gunanmen (‘Old South Gate’), which used to be the south gate of Guilin during the Tang Dynasty in about 700 AD.

    Very good tour, the locations are well thought-out, from an out-of-the-way stop in an old village outside of Guilin, to the more well-travelled Ludi Yan, which is nevertheless well worth a visit. You can't go wrong with this tour!
