We will have a lakeside cruise on the lovely Kunming Lake and enjoy the magical views of the temples, pavilions and covered corridors around.

Then, your Honeymoon trip will go on to one of the oldest city in China – Lijiang. It is also known as Dayan Town in Lijiangba and was included in the UNESCO world heritage list in 1997.  It was first built in the Southern Song Dynasty and in 1253 and became larger during Ming and Qing dynasties.

Altogether there are 13 peaks along the range, stretching for over 35km from south to north. The summit, Shanzidou, is 5596 meters above sea level. Viewed from afar, the snow-capped range resembles a silver dragon with snow curling up its middle. Rich forest, herb and animal resources thrive on the mountain.

On our way we will stop at Dongba Village in Yushui Stockade, which is built completely according to the traditional life style of Naxi Minority. You can feel the traditional atmosphere of national culture from the layout of its yard, building facilities, tools and details of life.

Day 6 Lijiang/Zhongdian (B,L)

Lijiang/Zhongdian (B,L)

Transfer via: Private Vehicle on our arrangement
Sightseeing: First Bend of Yangtze River, Tiger Leaping Gorge

In the morning you will be transferred to Shangri-La. On the way, you will fist visit Tiger Leaping Gorge. Being one of Yunnan's most famous spots, the gorge itself is tucked neatly between the Yulong Snow Mountain and Haba Snow Mountain, which surround its two sides.

Secondly, we will see the first bend of the Yangtze River. It lies in Shigu Town, Lijiang. Rushing down from the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, "the roof of the world", the Yangtze surges into Yunnan from its northwest, where it meets Lancang River and Nu River. Then, they go together through the high mountains and deep gorges of Hengduan Mountains. You will be impressed by this natural power.

Day 7 Zhongdian (B,L)

Zhongdian (B,L)

Sightseeing: Song Zanling Monastery, Bitahai Nature Reserve, Napahai Lake

Today your tour will start with a visit of Songzanlin Monastery, which is a typical Lama monastery. Located at the foot of Mt. Foping, four kilometers north of Zhongdian County, a monastery was first built here in 1679 and has been rebuilt many times. The architectural style of the building is a faithful imitation of the Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet.

Then you will see Bitahai Nature Reserve, an intact natural attraction with various species of flora and fauna and of course picturesque landscapes. In the reserve itself, century-old pines and cypresses are growing around Bitahai Lake, in which the water is crystal clear. In the middle of the lake there is an islet covered by cedars and azaleas.

Finally, we will head to Napahai Lake, both an ideal grazing field for herdsmen and a paradise for many species of birds. This is, in the true sense, a seasonal lake. When summer comes, snow on the adjacent mountains melts and flows down into about ten rivers forming a vast lake. In the dry season, Napahai becomes boundless green grassland--the best time for herding sheep or cattle. Nevertheless when you will come, the whole scenery will be kind of unique.

A picnic lunch or BBQ on the meadow will be a sparking point of your honeymoon tour.

Then visit the Elephant Trunk Hill. Located at the conjunction of the Li River & the Peach Blossom River, the whole hill looks very much like a giant elephant with a long trunk drinking out of the river; it is the symbol of Guilin city.

In the afternoon we will continue to visit the Fubo (wave-subduing) Hill. Located at the conjunction of the Li River & the Peach Blossom River, the whole hill looks very much like a giant elephant with a long trunk drinking out of the river; it is the symbol of Guilin city.

Comment on our service from Martin McMulkin, UK
Guide was excellent, helpful, informative but not intrusive. Driver was very good, did not drive too fast or zig-zag along the roads. We chose your company as you gave us the best price by a big margin.
Yinchuan tour
Thank you for organizing the trip, we had a great time.

1. Guide was excellent, helpful, informative but not intrusive.

2. Driver was very good, did not drive too fast or zig-zag along the roads. Only problem was that the seatbelt in the van did not work properly.

3. We chose your company as you gave us the best price by a big margin. Lots of companies seem to quote ridiculous prices for non-Chinese travelers.

Thank you very much and if we plan to visit somewhere unusual like this again I will get in touch with your company.

Thanks

Thank you so much for organizing the Tour for us - my Boss loved it!!!

All went well - actually much better than I thought it would be.

The tour guide Lucy (Ling Ling) was simply amazing - what a wonderful lovable and knowledgeable person!!!!

She took care of us in the most perfect way. 

If there's a tourist guide that can work really well with foreigners, it's Lucy.

Her command of English was simply great.

Thank you again for arranging everything.

Enjoy the rest of the day.


Cheers,

Family tour in Yunnan
Please see my comments as follows:
1. What do you think of our guide service? 
Good and helpful.

2. What do you think of our driver service? 
Good, but not particularly cheerful.

3. What do you think of the hotel service and their breakfast? 
These International hotels' services and quality are as good as they usually are. The only comment I wish to make is that on top of the guests request for the types of rooms, they should consider to allocate ground level or easy access rooms for elderly and/or handicapped guests.

4. Which meal makes you memorable? 
Aside from the hotel being rather old the Chinese restaurant food was excellent in Dali. Good variety and tasty.

5. Could you please advise why you choose us to be your tour operator for your holiday? 
Because of you, Sandy! You were very helpful and prompt in making arrangements for us. Thank you!

Best regards,
Barton
