Meet your guide at the lobby of your hotel in Shanghai city centre and be transferred to Shanghai airport to take a flight to Guilin. The guide will also help you to check-in at the airport counter. Once you arrive to Guilin Liangjiang International Airport, a new guide will pick you up at the exit lobby and you will be ready to start this private tour to visit the most spectacular landscape in China.

 

First you will drive out of the city to visit the Elephant Trunk Hill Park, situated at the west bank of Li River and regarded as the symbol of Guilin landscape. Originally named "Li Hill", "Yi Hill" and "Chenshui Hill", the hill is 3.6 hundred million years old. Resembling an elephant leisurely sucking water from the river with its long trunk, this hill is famous as Elephant Trunk Hill for hundreds of years. You can climb up the stairs to obtain a bird’s-eye view of Guilin.

 

Next you will enjoy a traditional Guilin style lunch including Guilin Rice noodles and other famous local snacks. In the afternoon, you will board a cruise to enjoy the stunning scenery of the Li river. Almost every bend in the river is a great opportunity to take pictures of spectacular limestone peaks, graceful bamboo groves, farmers tending rice paddies, and lumbering water buffaloes pulling carts or cooling off in the river. If you’re very lucky you might see one of the famous fishing cormorants.

 

Then you will visit the Reed Flute Cave, a natural limestone cave with multicolored lighting. The cave got its name from the verdant reeds growing outside it with which people make flutes out of. Inside this water-eroded cave is a spectacular world of various stalactites, stone pillars and rock formations created by carbonate deposition. Illuminated by colored lighting, the fantastic spectacle is found in many variations along this 240-meter-long cave.

 

After this last attraction, your guide will drop you off at Guilin airport to take the flight back to Shanghai. Once you arrive to Shanghai a new guide will pick you up at the exit lobby and transfer you to your hotel in Shanghai city centre.

This day trip to Chengdu from Shanghai includes a hotel pick up and drop off and round-trip air travel plus a private tour of the capital of Sichuan Province, the natural habitat of the famous and endangered giant pandas. You will visit the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, the Wuhou Temple and the Jinli Promenade.

You’ll be picked up at your Shanghai city hotel for an early morning flight. Upon arrival at the Chengdu airport, your expert local guide will escort you to a comfortable, private vehicle to experience what Chengdu has to offer in a day.

First you’ll visit the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. The center has two types of 'accommodations' for giant pandas - the Captive Cages and the Semi-Natural Enclosures. Most of the giant pandas in the center stay individually in the captive cages, which are in fact large enclosures, each consisting of an indoor room and an outdoor courtyard. The semi-nature enclosures are very large wild areas but protected by border fences. Pandas in these areas will soon be released back into the wild, and these enclosures help them adapt to this natural environment.

Although food has to be provided, the giant pandas will sleep there, eat there and recover their natural survival skills there until they can be released back to the wild. A visit to this center is one of the best ways to see the pandas the way they are as close to their natural habitat as possible. After this you’ll have a traditional Chinese cuisine lunch at a local restaurant, where your guide will help to explain every dish that you will be served.

After lunch you’ll visit the Wuhou Temple, which was constructed in memory of Zhuge Liang, a well-known strategist and statesman during the Three Kingdoms Period. Your tour guide will provide some historical background to help you better understand what the displays in the temple mean. The temple covers a surprisingly big area of 37,000 square meters. It is unsure when exactly this amazing example of Chinese architecture was built, but the atmosphere here is great and the temple is one of the best known sights of the city.

Across from the temple is theJinli Promenade, a trading and folk art street imitating ancient-style buildings of this region. "Jinli" is the name of an old street in Han-dynasty Chengdu, meaning "make perfection still more perfect and hide the universe in the universe". The ancient Jinli was one of the oldest and the most commercialized streets of its time. The promenade offers a lot of local culture, including local snacks that your tour guide can help you understand. There are also other local specialties and souvenirs on offer, but don’t forget to bargain for them!

From here, hop back in your private vehicle for the transfer to the Xi’an airport in time for your return flight. You will be greeted on arrival in Shanghai and driven back to your hotel just in time for a good night’s sleep.
