Bamboo rafts on the River Li | Yangshuo | China

Guilin & Yangshuo

3 days  |  from  £500

This add-on is a 3-day tour of Guilin and Yangshuo that can be booked in conjunction with any of our Signature China group tours, private tours or tailor-made tours.

Renowned for its striking, if bizarre scenery - vast areas of karst limestone outcrops that rise up from flat rice paddy fields, Guilin is often the subject of Chinese painting. The Lijiang River cruise is a true pleasure that offers an endless procession of peaks and simple villages. Cruising at a sedate pace along the often misty river, local village boys paddle out to the river boats with all manner of souvenirs, whilst local fishermen use trained cormorants to catch fish.

Charming Yangshuo, a river town lined with cafes and little shops selling handicrafts, clothing and curios, offers gentle respite far from the madding crowds of the cities. From Yangshuo, bikes can be hired at reasonable cost to go see more of the area and its stunning limestone karsts, or watch the scenery from the included river cruise.

In Guilin, see Elephant Trunk Hill and visit Reed Flute Cave, which offers the chance to walk inside a gargantuan and deep limestone cave that features innumerable stalactites, stalagmites and rocky outcrops.
