Spend the day exploring this charming village, with its traditional wooden stilted houses, and enjoy the incredible panoramas of the surrounding countryside.

DAY 2

DAY 2 - Longsheng - Guilin

Start the morning with a hike to the Longji or “Dragon’s Backbone” Rice Terraces. Built more than 700 years ago, the myriad layers of rice fields cascade from the top of the mountain all the way down to the riverside, making for an incredible sight.


Enjoy a packed lunch amidst the rice terraces and continue the scenic trek to the remote villages of Zhongliu and Tiantouzhai. Take in some last panoramic views of the breath-taking scenery, before heading back to Guilin.

DAY 3

DAY 3 - Guilin - Yangshuo

In the morning, take a relaxed cruise along the Li River to the picturesque town of Yangshuo. Sit back and take in the impressive views as jagged karst mountains are unveiled after each twist and turn of the river. Looming over the verdant greenery, the stretch between Yangdi and Xingping villages is definitely one of the highlights of the trip, boasting dramatic scenery of karst formations which have inspired some of China’s greatest poets and painters.

Upon arrival in Yangshuo, visit the small and quiet Fuli Village. Dubbed as an artistic town, it’s the home of the intricately hand-painted paper fans. Wander through the cobbled streets, lined with old stone houses and discover the colourful fans and scroll paintings that can be spotted all around town.
Spend the evening watching a spectacular display of lights and theatre at the “Impression Liu Sanjie” show. Set against the stunningly lit backdrop of the Li River and surrounding karst mountains, witness local farmers, fishermen and dancers perform the famous love story of the beautiful and mythical singer called Liu Sanjie. Return to Yangshuo for a good night’s rest.
