Transfer back to your hotel in Guilin.
Be met at 8:30 at your hotel and transferred to Longsheng County at about 11:00. Have lunch at a local restaurant in the Village. Located in Longsheng County, Longji Terraced Field is built into the hillsides and look like great chains or ribbons as they wind from the foot to the top of the hill. This ingenious construction makes best use of the thin arable land and water resources in the mountainous area. Some parts of the fields were first built in the Yuan Dynasty and completed in the Qing Dynasty by the Zhuang people.
Among the terraced fields there stands two villages - Ancient Zhuang Village and Ping'an Village. Hike among the terraced fields for about 3 hours. You will see the two most famous scenic spots- "Seven Stars around the Moon" and "Nine Dragons & Five Tigers". Also have a chance to see the local Yao Minority Women's Long Hair Show (optional with extra charge) before being transferred back to your hotel in Guilin at about 18:00.
Pick you up from your hotel in the morning. First you will visit Reed Flute Cave, known as "the Palace of Natural Arts", which holds a great number of beautiful stalactites and stalagmites in different shapes. Then go sightseeing at Elephant Trunk Hill - the landmark of Guilin. The hill looks like a giant elephant drinking water from the river with its long trunk. Not far from it stands the Fubo Hill. There are lots of rock stone carvings and Buddha statues since Tang Dynasty. Enjoy a bird's-eye view of Guilin city if you climb to the summit. Then visit the Seven-star Park. The park is named after the Seven Star Mountain, where there are seven peaks just like the stars falling from the sky. It is a micro version of Guilin scenery. Be transferred to your hotel after the tour.
