6 Top Guilin Tours from Hong Kong

6 Top Guilin Tours from Hong Kong in 2021

Guilin is well known for its karst landscapes, clean rivers, idyllic countryside, majestic rice terraces, and ethnic minorities. Located in South China, it's an ideal destination to access from Hong Kong.

How to plan a Guilin Tour

When we talk about Guilin, it usually consists of three parts and you can choose according to your days to day:

  • Downtown Guilin (1 day): Famous for its karst mountains and karst caves. Elephant Trunk Hill, Fubo Hill, and Reed Flute Cave are the most classic spots. They offer fantastic outlooks over Guilin and its rivers, weaving among its many hills.
  • Yangshuo (2-4 days): Yangshuo is regarded as having the most beautiful countryside in China due to its idyllic landscape and leisurely rural lifestyle. As you venture out into the countryside, you can see water buffalos grazing in the rice fields, fishermen fishing with cormorants, women washing clothes by the river with karst peaks in the background, and old men chatting in a village square under the shade of a big tree…. This should be the China you imagined.
  • Longsheng (1-2 days): The rice terraces in Longji look just like the scales of a huge dragon’s back (”Longji” means ‘dragon’s back’) as they proceed in tiers down the mountain ridges. The best times to see the rice terraces are around mid-May when they are irrigated and September to October when the crops are turning golden. A large number of hikers and photographers visit the area during these months

TA feedback

Rita had help plan a once in a lifetime tour for us last spring that we cancelled due to Covid. CH refunded our deposit in one day and wished us luck and good health. She then offered to send us masks since they were impossible to find in the US in April. 2 weeks later we received ~200 masks from CH with no charge! What a great, ethical and knowledgeable travel agent. Would rebook in a mi Ute if we knew it was safe. More...

Had a wonderful time with our tour guides Cactus and Jin. In the time of COVID it was a great relief to have help sorting through protocols for entering tourist sights. Excellent lunch options. The juggling and sugar candy art in the hutong was a real treat. Great thing about touring now - no crowds. Highly recommended tour operator for anyone traveling to Beijing. More...
