Our trip to Guilin with China Highlights was AWESOME! Seriously, stop trying to plan a trip yourself and book through them. They took care of everything and made the trip ideal for us and the activities we enjoy. I loved the long hike along the river, and the chance to make bamboo rice with locals. Also, the bike ride through the local countryside was truly unforgettable. I don't think it would be possible to do any of this without the support of a company like China Highlights. more
