Itinerary Quick Look

Here is a suggested itinerary. We are happy to customize a tour according to your interests.

DAY 1 Guilin Arrival | Airport Transfer

With buildings surrounded by mountains and rivers, Guilin might strike you as a small laid-back town yet its charm calls out to you to explore it. Upon arrival in Guilin, you will have a lot of free time to discover the city on your own.

DAY 2 Guilin to Longsheng | Rolling Mountains in Longsheng

After breakfast, start exploring Longsheng. Usually, it takes 3 to 4 hours to get there on the mountain road. You will travel on the highway instead, to shorten the journey to 2 hours.

Arriving at the famous terraced rice fields, you can either walk up or take an electric buggy to get to the top.

Enjoy lunch with a Yao family who invite you into their home. You will return to Guilin by the evening.

DAY 3 Guilin to Yangshuo |A Li River Cruise with Scenic at Every Turn

Listed as one of the world’s 15 best rivers for travelers by CNN, the Li River presents itself differently in each season and there are different ways you can appreciate it.

You will enjoy the most classic way: a cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo. To maximize your experience, we will arrange a 4-star cruise for you, which is the highest level. It offers better facilities and a buffet lunch.

DAY 4 Guilin Departure | Until Next Time, Guilin!

To experience the daily life of the local farmers on your last day in Guilin will let you see another side of China.

Drive through the villages where there is almost no other tourist. You might meet someone on his way to the field with a water buffalo or someone working in the paddy.

Take a ferry and a local farmer's taxi to the market in a small town on the other bank of the Li River, see the real lifestyles of the people living in this rural area of China.

We will see you off smoothly with an airport transfer in the afternoon.
