Guilin is an ancient city situated along the shore of the mesmerizing Li River in the northeastern Guangxi Zhang Autonomous Region. It has long been renowned for its dazzling natural beauty and unique limestone karst hills. About 200 million years ago, the city was a vast expanse of sea until the oceans receded, leaving behind a beautiful landscape “unmatched under Heaven”.
The most stunning site this city has to offer, however, is the Li River. A river cruise along the emerald waters offers unparalleled views of a mystical landscape filled with mist-shrouded hills, caves, and meandering boats. In Guilin, you can also view more of nature’s masterpieces at Elephant Trunk Hill and Reed Flute Cave, where staggering stalactite and stalagmite rock formations create an eerie, dreamlike atmosphere.
