Yangshuo (B, L)

After having breakfast, we will drive to Xingping dock where today's hiking tour start from. Xingping is an ancient town with 63 km (39 miles) from Guilin and 25 km (15.5 miles) from Yangshuo, on the east bank of the river. The town is surrounded by enthralling scenery. Both Mural Hill and Yellow Cloth Shoal belong to this scenic area.
First we will walk along Li River to Yangdi. About 4.5 hours' hiking, we will get Yangdi, a small fishing village. The landscapes there are very spectacular, elegant mountains, winding water, delicate beach, striking waterfall, dense green bamboos and dotted villages. Yangdi is also an ideal place to enjoy the misty rain of Li River, Which seems to be a wonderland, quiet, peaceful and mysterious in spring. The hiking tour finishes here. Our vehicle will pick us up and transfer us back to Yangshuo.
Yangshuo (B, L)
Route: Yangshuo - Fuli - Liugong - Yongcun - Yangshuo
Sightseeing: Fuli Old Town, Liugong Fishing Village
After breakfast, we will cycle for 2 hours from Yangshuo to Fuli, an ancient town along the Li River with nice traditional buildings. Then we will take our bike to the ferry boat to cross the river and begin the cycle tour on local bumping trails. Route turns more difficult for bicycle riding. After another two hours riding, we will arrive at Liugong Fishing Village. Located among beautiful carst hills, Liu Gong Village's typical ancient buildings are preserved till now. There are many footpaths between farmers fields. The Main attractions here are water-flowing cave, Liugong Three-Pond, Gold Lion Drinking Water, beauty and peach Li River, Eight-immortal Dragging a Horse and the pavilion on Riverside. The water flows very smooth and safe all long year. Then we will have free time to walk around this village.
Later afternoon, we will cycle back to Yangshuo. Visit Yongcun Village on the way.
Yangshuo (B, L)
Routes: Yangshuo - Chaoyang -Yulong River –Gaotian- Yangshuo
Sightseeing: Yulong River, Moon Hill
In the morning, we will cycle to Yulong River. The Yulong River, also called Dragon River and this River Valley is said to rival Li River Scenic Area in beauty and prestige. The part of the river that stretches from Yulong Bridge in Baisha Town, to Gongnong Bridge near the Big Banyan Tree, is known as the Yulong River Scenic Area, and includes some spectacular scenic views along each river bank. The languid river is surrounded by a primitive, but pure, natural landscape, combined with green bamboo forests and rolling hills.
First we will take around 1 hour biking to Chaoyang dock on Yulong River, and then we will take the bike onto the bamboo raft and have a two-hour rafting on the crystal clear river. This afternoon, we will cycle around Gaotian area and have a visit to Moon Hill on the way. Moon Hill, named for the crescent shaped cave running through the moon. The journey up to the summit is an arduous one which covers 800 steep steps. The scenery overlooking the countryside through the half moon, however, is well worth the trek, which is probably the best you will get in the area.
Cycle back to Yangshuo.
Yangshuo / Guilin Departure (B)
Transfer via: Flight on your own arrangement
Free at leisure until your guide pick up you from your hotel lobby and then transfer to Guilin airport for your next destination.
Dear Nora,Thank you again for such excellent arrangement under the rushed condition. I enjoyed the tour with excellent English guide. Whenever I visit historical cities, I usually join guided tour. In the guided tour especially in European countries, the guider usually prepares a presentation with picture files or using notepad for audience' better understanding. Sometime oral explanation is not sufficient. Anyway i have not seen such presentations from other tour groups around today. Again, my guider today was excellent to give me overall and essential points in the history. Driving was also gentle. All the best for your business. Ki Seob

Dear Nora Thank you so much for having arranged great tour for us! The visits were well arranged and we wish if we had more time then we can visit more attractions.All guides are super! Knowledgeable and have good commands of English, good sense of humor. We like them all!Transportations were ok but can not give them max points due to their ages! Drivers were all nice. Hotels in Beijing, Xi’an and Nanjing are great! Great location, well equipped, nice room and good breakfast. Hotel in Luoyang is an old style, simple breakfast, but we understand that they are in the same situation as the city. Near the Peony Hotel, I saw a new small hotel near by but I did not come in to check. I am thinking it may be better to use new small hotel than big old ones.In Shanghai, we are very disappointed about hotel. Room small, dirty, poor facilities. Breakfast is poor. Location is so so, not so convenience. I think you should find another option for your future bookings in Shanghai. Meals: the guide helped us to choose dishes and we really enjoyed. Except in Beijing, because of timing inconvenience due to traffic, we ask the guide to arrange the near by restaurants for quick food, all others were great. In General, we are all happy with your services. Hope will have the chance to come back with you for more tours in China and surely, I will recommend you and your company for my tour company friends! Nora, once again, thank you for your great work! My best regards Bich Ha

I hope this letter finds you well. We finally arrived home from our trip last Thursday the 17th. As promised I am writing to you about our experience in China and we thank you very much for your organizing. On the whole we had a wonderful time and were very well looked after by both guides and drivers we would especially like to thank Linda and Cynthia which we would highly recommend. They both gave really excellent service in every way including punctuality, information and restaurants that were chosen for lunches, the food was delicious. The cruise on the Huangpu River was cancelled because of bad weather which couldn't be helped so the guide offered us an Acrobatic Show which we enjoyed very much. We had a lovely time on day 3 to Tongli water town. Our stay in China was wonderful. Best regards, Kathleen Pam

Hi Sandy, Thank you for a great first tour together. I appreciate that it was a big commitment for you to be away from your office family for such a long time. I know you would have missed your young son a lot. I am also very grateful for your huge personal effort that you put into the detailed planning. The local guides were all great - Sally, Amanda Benny. Regarding the itinerary, I think we have an excellent itinerary for the beginning and the end, but the middle of the tour needs to be changed. Thank you again for all your excellent work. I look forward to visiting you in your home town for our first Tibet tour in August 2020. Jo I might travel up one day ahead of the group to meet you and have dinner with you. Best regards, Brod
