Once reaching Guilin, we only had time to visit the Flute Reed Caves. The reeds in this area are used to make...flutes.
Several people on our tour weren't very mobile and especially not after several exhausting days of visiting Beijing and Xian. Fortunately, they have a special service for people who want to visit the caves but are not up to the many steps. They had porters that will convey you through the caves.
