A Full Day Tour of Guilin

Today I took a full day tour of Guilin.

Our first stop was Seven Star Park. There was something for everyone in this park. There was an amphitheater for shows. There was a rock museum with all kinds of rocks from all over the world and various periods in time. There was even a small zoo here.

The next stop was the Reed Flute Cave. The cave got its name from a kind of flutes growing outside which can be made into melodious flutes. The cave is filled with a large number of stalactites, stalagmites, rocks in all strange shapes. The cave is about 240 meters long and a trip last about one hour. Along the u-shaped route, visitors can see those oddly shaped rocks, stone pillars and your guide will give you interesting story about them. Illuminated by the colored lights, the cave looks like a dazzling palace that's why the cave is otherwise known as the "Art Palace of the Nature". Inside the cave there are more than 70 inscription written in ink, which can dating back to 792 AD during the Tang Dynasty, over one thousand years ago. These aged marks tell that it have been an attraction in ancient time.
