Day 1
Day Tour to Longji Rice Terraces

Our English-speaking tour guide and skilled driver will pick you up at your hotel at around 8:00 am (or your convenient time) for a 2.5 hour driving to the Ping'an or Dazhai of Longji in Longsheng County, 100 km far from Guilin downtown.

To make the most of the area to plant the grain, mountain ranges were cleverly dug out as the rice field by local farmer forefathers. The ladder-like field, thriving plants and the working farmers unveil you a tranquil beautiful picture.

Meanwhile, you will also get the chance to see the Zhuang and Yao ethnic minorities and their characteristic daily life in this area as well.

Conclude intraday tour by transferring back to your hotel in Guilin in the afternoon.

Day 2
Cruise to Yangshuo

The tour guide and driver will meet you at your hotel at around 8:30 am and transfer you via the private air-conditioned car to the Li River Cruise dock. The 83-km river cruise, starting from Guilin and ending at Yangshuo, is known as the "hundred miles art gallery" for its pretty karst hills as well as crystal water along the journey.

We will disembark at Yangshuo around 02:00 pm and the balance of the day is left free for you to wander around the famous West Street, cycle around Yangshuo rural area, visit local primary school, cool off on Yulong River bamboo rafting, etc.

When it comes to dinner time, you can go to one of the ambience bars or a small restaurant on the West Street where you can sample the local famous Guilin dishes like fish fried with beer or your familiar favorite western dinner.

Day 3
Back to Guilin, Guilin Day Tour

Our tour guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel at around 8:30am (or your convenient time) and transfer back to Guilin for Solitary Beauty Peak. This hill, a tranquil oasis nestling at city center, has changed from a former Ming dynasty mansion to the present home to Guangxi Normal University. After conquering 306 steep steps up to the peak, you will be rewarded with a magnificent panoramic view of Guilin city.

Later, let's move to the emblem of Guilin city--Elephant Trunk Hill Park. A huge elephant-drinking-like hill earns it the name. And then you can walk around this little pretty and tranquil park to enjoy the leisure time.

Our next stop is Fubo Hill Park. The park's hill is half covered by the river and looks like subduing on the water. Besides, you also will see the pretty garden, some cultural relics as well as a cave restored with some stone statues from Tang and Song Dynasty.

After finishing three parks in the downtown, we will continue the tour in Reed Flute Cave in the suburb area of Guilin city. The cave got its name for local people were said to usually play the flute made of reed straw growing by the cave entrance. The 250 meters cave is fulfilled with karst formations like various stalagmites and stalactites in different shapes.

Conclude intraday tour by transferring back to your hotel in Guilin.

Friendly Tips

  • 1. Longsheng rice terraces are at their best in late May to early June when paddy fields are fully irrigated with water. Late September to early October is another best time to view layers of golden rice. Please note the first week of October is busy Chinese national holiday, right after which the harvest will start.
  • 2. The local foods tend to be more expensive and less satisfying due to the relatively remote mountain condition.
  • 3. Most Longji accommodations are in traditional wooden structure and not so sound-proofed.
  • 4. Porter service provided by local people is available at about CNY20-CNY30 for a piece of luggage. It is advised to negotiate the price before the service starts.
  • 5. Li River Cruise only operates one way service from Guilin to Yangshuo downstream. The cruise normally lasts about 4.5 hrs and includes a buffet lunch on boat.
  • 6. When doing the Yulong rafting, please remember to wear the life jacket all the time and keep a close eye on the kid if there is any.
  • 7. When you do the Yulong rafting, electric devices like camera are advised to be water-proofed protected for the occasional water splashes, from the dam or other raft tourists' trick.
  • 8. Yangshuo outdoor challenging activities like the rock-climbing and hot air balloon are not advised, esp. for the less experienced challenger as many related organizations or agencies are not officially licensed and not safety-guaranteed.
  • 9. The stone steps of Solitary Beauty Peak are steep and attention is needed to be paid.
  • 10. Reed Flute Cave is damp inside, so non-slip shoes and attention during the tour is suggested.
  • 11. If you are looking for nighttime activities in Guilin downtown, popular places are Zhengyang Pedestrian Street (shops and eateries), Shangshui Street (snacks) and the night market (inexpensive souvenirs) stretching along Lingui Road and Jiaotong Road.
