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!

Once at the airport, you’ll find your local guide waiting for you outside the baggage claim area. A private transfer will take you to your hotel in the city center.

Meal: Not included
Hotel: Overnight in Sanjiang

After breakfast, your guide and driver will pick you up and drive you to Longsheng to visit Longji Rice Terraces. Longsheng’s terraced fields are stacked from the foot of the mountain to the top of the mountain. The local Zhuang people have been building and using these stunning terraces since the 13th century.

You’ll have access to a maze of hiking trails through rice terraces filled with incredible views. Standing on the top of the mountain, you get nothing but the 360-degree terraces and the curves that wrap around the mountains. Then, you will visit a Zhuang village to experience their unique Chinese national culture.

Afterwards, continue with a private tour of Sanjiang, another typical Dong settlement.

Day 3Sanjiang - Guilin

Attractions: Sanjiang Dong Village, Drum Tower, Wind and Rain Bridge
Meal: Not included
Hotel: Overnight in Guilin

Today you will go on a trip to the Dong ethnic group. Dong Village is surrounded by mountains and rivers, with well-preserved dwellings and charming natural landscapes. In the village, you will see the iconic building – Wind and Rain Bridge, which combines the styles of bridges, corridors and pavilions, reflecting the unique Dong customs and wisdom of the Dong people. Built of wood and brick, the bridge provided a shelter for those working in the fields, but has since become a date place for young people and a popular attraction for tourists.

Another typical building in Dong Village is the Drum Tower. It is always located in the center of the village as a political and cultural center. Every time the village head beat drums on the top floor, the villagers would stop what they were doing and gather around the tower.

Then you will be transferred back to Guilin and rest at your hotel.

Day 4Guilin - Yangshuo

Attractions: Li River, West Street
Meal: Not included
Hotel: Overnight in Yangshuo

In the morning, take a cruise down the Li River to Yangshuo. The scenery along the way is picturesque: the mountains and mountains along the river are stacked, the clear water reflects, and the fields dot the shore.

Upon arrival in Yangshuo, your guide will help you to stay at the 4-star Kaiyuan Hotel for two nights. After a short rest, continue to visit West Street, a traditional southern Chinese street but with a unique international flavor due to the large number of foreign residents here.

Then we will take you along the country road to enjoy the beautiful natural scenery of Yangshuo. On the way, you will stop at villagers’ homes to learn more about the life of local farmers.

Day 5Yangshuo

Attractions: Yulong River, Fuli Town

After 50 minutes of bamboo rafting, it is a short drive to the ancient town of Fuli. This small town by the Li River has a history of more than 1,000 years. There you will see old houses and buildings where people still keep their traditional customs. It is also the hometown of Chinese painting fans. There is a fan street with shops and stalls selling painting fans and hanging paintings. If interested, you can also try to draw one yourself. Finally, we will drive back to Yangshuo.

Day 6Yangshuo - Guilin

Attractions: Daxu Ancient Town, Reed Flute Cave, Elephant Trunk Hill
Meal: Not included 

Return to Guilin after breakfast. On the way, you will visit Daxu Ancient Town, one of the four ancient market towns in Guangxi. Most of the ancient dwellings on the roadside are two-story buildings with blue bricks and blue tiles in the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) eras. Adjacent to the Li River in the west, it is the best location to enjoy the scenery of the Li River and the Snail Hill opposite.

Then you will go to Reed Flute Cave, one of the most famous caves in China. You’ll see stalagmites and stalactites in various shapes with interesting names, such as Dragon Tower, Crystal Palace and Primeval Forest.

The last stop is Elephant Trunk Hill. Considered a symbol of the city, the mountain is a naturally formed karst rock in the shape of a giant elephant. Taking pictures in front of the mountain is definitely one thing you will never forget.

Afterwards, our private transfer service will take you to the airport for your onward flight. Farewell, happy trip home!
