Overview:

It is no exaggeration to call Guilin a photographer’s paradise. The endless green mountains are hidden by the quiet and clear Li River, forming the most classic scene of Chinese landscape painting; the Longji terraced fields silently tell the hard work of the local farmers; the antique buildings of the ancient town tell the stories of the old times…

This Guilin tour can be customized according to the photos you want to take and the weather conditions when you go. Feel free to tell your personal travel advisor your interests and ideas!
