The region of Guilin offers some of China’s most breath taking natural beauty. Our escorted tours of Guilin will make sure you do not miss any of this stunning region. One of the highlights to our tour is a visit to the Longsheng Rice Terraces, home to the Zhuang and Miao Minority communities where we hike the lush paddy fields, try traditional local organic food and take in the stunning view from the mountain tops.
From here, we head to a small resort in a nearby valley. Located close to the river, there will be time to relax and watch a demonstration of Cormorant Fishing. We visit the Crown Caves, which are less touristy than others near the city, before heading out on our cruise along the Li River, sailing through the stunning mountain scenery of towering limestone karst peaks. Our cruise ends at the quite town of Yangshuo. Nestled between the mountain peaks, this relaxed and charming town offers friendly restaurants and bars and some great shopping opportunities at the night market on West Street.
Our tour in Guilin also includes time exploring the local countryside, either by bicycle or in a motorised buggy, a chance to take a raft along the river and the option of a cookery class which features a trip to a local food market.
