What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Xi'an City Wall (Chengqiang), Zhongxin District, Xi'an 710001 China

The tour starts in the morning at 9:00 am. Your tour guide will meet you at your hotel lobby. After meeting up, get on a comfortable vehicle to start the journey to the eighth world wonder, the Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum. The museum was listed by UNESCO in 1987 as one of the world’s cultural heritages. It mainly consists of three pits. Upon arrival, you will go directly to check out those life-size warriors and horses. Each pit is like an enduring mystery that remains hidden within its depth. No one knows the exact story behind those vivid figures but everyone has a story for them deep in mind by imagination.

Later you will enjoy a typical Chinese lunch in a local restaurant, the guide will help to choose your preferred dishes, this is a great opportunity to try out the local cuisine. Then drive back to Xi’an downtown. You will start exploring the ancient City Wall. It wins the fame as the most complete city wall existing in China and also one of the largest ancient military defensive systems in the world. Walking on the wall, you may see the modern Xi’an outside the wall and the old Xi’an inside. If you are daring, you may ride a bicycle to quickly tour around it.

After that, you will head eastwards to visit the Big Wild Goose Pagoda - one of the most famous Buddhist pagodas in China. Originally built in 652 AD during the reign of Emperor Gaozong of Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD), it functioned to collect Buddhist materials that were taken from India by the hierarch Xuanzang. Now you may see many entertainment and relaxation facilities at the neighborhood. The area is quite popular among the locals also, so it will be a good chance to mix with the local people.

To conclude the full day sightseeing, your guide and driver will transfer you back to your hotel at last.

Best of Guilin in a Day expertly planned by Bruce [TravofChina] & by our Guide, Ricky
Once our Tour was confirmed, we had the pleasure of dealing with Bruce, TravofChina's representative, who expertly coordinated everything via email before our arrival. Despite us staying at a Yangshuo hotel, a good hour and a half each way from Guilin, Bruce organised our pick up and drop off at no extra cost. Our wonderful guide for the day was Ricky. We started our day at the delightful Seven Star Park, where we were treated to scenes of locals carrying on with their everyday lives, much greenery, trees brilliantly painted by neighbouring school children into animals matching the tree's shape [!], wild furry monkeys scurring about, statues and most notably a Karst formation named "Camel Hill", due to its remarkable shape. Our next stop was Elephant Trunk Hill. A Karst formation, with a protuding arch on the water, resembling an elephant's trunk. The neighbouring lovers park, Li River and unique modern art statues, made the visit here worthwhile, as did Ricky's commentary. Later we were treated to a delicious and generous lunch of local specialities, including the delicious "beer fish" made with fresh fish from the area. Ricky was mindful to keep all our dietary and personal culinary requests in mind. Then it was onwards to Fubo Hill with it's elaborate Buddhist carvings, followed by a climb to the top to admire a view of the city of Guilin and the Li River. The grand finale was the award winning Reed Flute Cave visit, named for the red reeds that used to grow there in ancient times. Our time in the cave took close to 90 minutes, where we were treated to glorious rock formations and a unique light and sound show which played out on the cave's wall and ceiling. As we had a long drive back to Yangshuo, Ricky very kindly accompanied us to a supermarket so our young daughters could pick up some snacks. All in all, we had a wonderful day, expertly planned by Bruce and brilliantly executed by the caring and very experienced Ricky. Book this tour for the very best of Guilin and for the best services offered by TravofChina! Oh yes, and make sure you ask for Bruce and Ricky! ~Felicia Variava Albert, Managing Director, Blaze Tours & Travels Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai, India
