Day 2: Li River Cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo

After half an hour's drive to Zhujiang Wharf, your guide will show you the wonders of the Li on your four-hour Li River Cruise, a "must" for a Guilin tour. You can choose to stay on deck to breathe the fresh air or take seat inside. The boat navigating down the river is just like watching a Chinese landscape scroll painting unroll.

The boat arrives at Yangshuo at about 13:30. Enjoy free time in Yangshuo, then we will drive you back to Guilin.

Day 3: Visit Ping'an village in Longsheng

You will be driven about two hours to Longsheng. Then climb around 40 minutes to the viewpoints around Ping'an village to see the magnificent terraced fields from different angles. Get closer to local life to learn how they earn a living, and how they work in the fields with water buffalos. Stay at a Ping'an hotel in the middle of the rice terraces.

Day 4: Drive to Sanjiang to see Chengyang Bridge

In the morning you will head to Sanjiang, where Dong minority people live. After about 2½ hours you will be amongst the wooden buildings of the Dong. Wander through the villages and meet friendly people. Built in 1916, Chengyang 'Wind and Rain' Bridge is the best one among the several 'wind and rain' bridges in nearby Dong stockaded villages. It is the largest 'wind and rain' bridge in the world.

In the late afternoon, you will be driven about 40 minutes from Chengyang to Sanjiang town. Stay at the best available hotel overnight.

Tianxing Qiao Scenic Area features the perfect combination of stones, trees, and water. Tianxing Bridge Scenic Zone is like a natural miniascape (dish garden) that you can walk through. After the day trip, return to Guiyang.
