Guilin Culture & Culinary Tour

Discover southern China’s distinctive cuisine, unique cultural spaces and otherworldly natural landmarks in Guilin.

About Your Trip

Start your exciting Guilin tour at the symbol of the city, Elephant Trunk Hill on the Li River, and marvel at the landmark’s uncanny resemblance to a giant pachyderm drinking from the water. Then, test your cooking skills with a hands-on lesson in making rice noodles, which you can sample afterward. Following a relaxing Chinese-style lunch, continue to Reed Flute Cave. While there, witness a fantastic spectacle of stalactites and rock formations illuminated by colored lights. That evening, savor a traditional dinner followed by a visit to the Two Rivers and Four Lakes Scenic Area, a cultural development of interlinked waterways. Take in the beautifully landscaped surroundings and a captivating demonstration of osprey fishing. Your DreamTrip also includes free time to explore the area at your leisure.

What we love:
• Elephant Trunk Hill has been a famous tourist destination since the Tang dynasty (618-907 A.D.).
• Reed Flute Cave gets its name from the reeds surrounding the exterior — commonly made into melodious flutes.
• The osprey, an extremely intelligent bird, is used to hunt fish as part of an ancient Guilin tradition.

Destination

Guilin can be aptly described as one of China’s most prized hidden treasures. It’s easily the most picturesque region in the country, featuring colossal limestone karsts, rainbow-hued caves and more. Guilin is named for the flowering osmanthus trees that fill the streets with their sweet fragrance.

Popular attractions in the region include Jingjiang Princes’ City, Seven-Star Cave, Elephant Trunk Hill and Reed Flute Cave. Visitors from around the world visit this scenic area to float lazily down the winding Li River and to gaze upon the uniquely shaped Longsheng Rice Terrace. Well-preserved temples, pagodas and moats remain from the city’s storied Tang dynasty.
