Day 2 Guilin City Li River Cruise and Yangshuo Group Day Tour (B+L)

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

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 formed and developed and how local people manage their life along the famous Li River.

After 4.5-hour cruise, you will embark 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.

West Street
Day 3 Longji Terrace & Zhuang Village Group Day Tour (B+L)

It would be hardly complete without a visit to the impressive Rice Terraces if you travel to Guilin. Rice Terraces is an incredible work with amazing combination of ancient Chinese wisdom and local geographic conditions. This group tour with lunch included will take you to explore the picturesque terraces you may have seen many times on books or magazines in the company of an excellent tour guide.

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. Then after lunch, you will move on to the highlight of the day, the 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.
