Nice park (entrance is not free) to have one of the classical views of Guilin, the elephant trunk rock. Avoid weekends as it's full of local tourism.

Good spot for taking picture while you wear traditional dress. You pay 15 yuan for renting the tradisional dress.

A giant rock hill vividly shapes like an elephant which is drinking water. This is a huge park with stone carving, Buddhist temple, relic exhibition. Plan to spend a lot of time here. There is a lovers area with many sculptures.
