5-Day Guilin Tour with Moderate Hiking

Real Interaction with Picturesque and Idyllic Guilin

5-Day Guilin Tour with Moderate Hiking

The best way to explore a picturesque and idyllic place like Guilin is just to feel the land with your feet and see it with your own eyes. When you replace typical tour activities like driving or taking a cruise with hiking and climbing, you will be able to slow down and take in the beauty around you instead of just passing quickly by.

On this 5-day Guilin tour, you will drop the 'set menu' made for ordinary tourists and go beyond the popular sites. Take a moderate hike in the terraced fields and alongside the picturesque Li River.
