Elephant Trunk Hill -- Sightseeing
Guilin, Guangxi China
This is a small park with a beautiful hill (Elephant Trunk Hill) that sticks out over the point where the Taohua and Li rivers meet. The park also has a few shrines and a quiet temple suitable for your basic spiritual needs. There are also several small caves to explore, and the particularly lovely "water moon rock". Admission is 15 Yuan. You can take a boat around the hill, or have your picture taken in colorful native garb, if that's your thing.
To get to Elephant Trunk Hill, head North from the train station, hang a right as soon as you cross over Nanmen bridge and walk another 1/2 KM.
