Collapse All
  1. Our Shenzhen driver will pick you up from your hotel and transfer you to Shenzhen train station for the bullet train to Guilin (suggested: G2906/14:26-17:28). Upon your arrival in Guilin, our Guilin driver will wait for you at the exit of the train station by holding a board with your name and then drive you to the hotel for check-in. The rest of the day is free at your disposal.

    Accommodation: Guilin 3* Hotel

  2. Today is about the cruise on the beautiful Li River and sightseeing in old Yangshuo. It’s an enjoyable journey for both your eyes and souls.

    AM: When the river flows through Guilin city, it not only cuts out the ordered and special riverway but also forms skin texture of this city, which endows Guilin with its unique characteristic: soft, clean, bright and active. Taking the cruise on the Li River, you will admire the picturesque scenery of this land with a harmonious combination of the green hills, rivers, lakes and fields. But its beauty is not like a still painting, it’s alive when vivid – brisk bamboo rafts leaving wrinkles on the water and cormorants hovering under the working fishermen…

    Our guide will uncover the hidden history and culture behind the natural screen before you during your cruise. You will learn from the local expert about how the city was formed and developed and how local people manage their life along the famous Li River.

    Noon: Lunch in local restaurant.

    PM: After 4.5-hour cruise, you will disembark at Yangshuo. Follow our guide to visit the famous local West Street where you will find local crafts and snacks gathering. Listen to the guide’s introduction to explore there better. Finally, you will be transferred back to your hotel.

  3. AM: In the morning around 08:30, your guide and driver will meet you at your downtown hotel lobby by holding a board with your name. After about 2 hours’ drive, you will arrive at Longji Terraces Scenic Area. You will first enjoy a Long Hair Show performed by Yao Minority women in Huangluo Village which was awarded “World’s Longest Hair Village” by Guinness World Records. The women here are famous for long and shiny hair, and you may not believe that they only cut their hair once upon turning 18.

    Noon: Lunch in local restaurant.

    PM: Then after lunch, you will move on to the highlight of the day, Longji Rice Terraces. On the way, you will have another special experience as the coach winds its way on the hilly roads with the steering wheel well controlled in the hands of the experienced driver. You will marvel at the beautiful scenery alongside and meanwhile awe at the driver’s skill. The Terraces has been managed by the local Zhuang Minority people for thousands of years, hence today’s large-scale rice fields with the stilted buildings inset. You will be definitely stunned by the rolling terraces especially when you look down from the top. There are cable cars available on your own cost if the hiking is too much for you.

    At about 16:30, you will be transferred back to the hotel after a joyous day at this fantastic place.
