Amazing sceneries - a must visit part of China
Another great travel with China Highlights. Due to school holidays we had to come in summer and yes, it was very hot. Still it was an unforgettable experience with the most beautiful sceneries we have ever seen. Monica prepared for us full experience with Longji rice terraces, Li River cruise, Xiang Gong Hill, tea picking, cave visit, etc. Lily has been very helpful and flexible with our wishes and adjusted according to weather, tiredness and hunger. Also restaurant selection was very good but we recommend to go for Chinese food as Western food is not really a strength for restaurant from this corner of China and the local food is really delicious in here. more
