We then cycle through the beautiful countryside road to Moon Hill. It is around 1.5 hours bike ride, you decide the pace. We have lunch at a local farmer’s restaurant nearby the Moon Hill. After lunch time, if you wish (and if the weather permits) you can climb to the top of the hill (walk to the Moon and then follow a path through the Moon shape to the highest top of the mountain). After that, we visit the nearby Banyan Tree Park. Finally, we return by bike back to Yangshuo, stopping at any points of interest in a different nice part of the countryside.

1 Day Li river countryside discovery tour (Option A)

Available: Daily
Duration: 1 day
Starts/Ends: on your request
Attractions: Bamboo boat on Li River, Liangshi Ancient village, Xingping farmer’s market, Fuli Old town
Transport included: car or van, bamboo boat
(You can click on links to read more about the activities or attractions)

 

I will pick you up by car from your hotel after your breakfast. We will go to Yangti, from where you will take a motorized bamboo boat trip down the river to Xingping. This is the most beautiful, most scenic section of the Li River. However, it is also popular for big boats coming from Guilin. To escape the big boats and enjoy a quieter cruise, the best time to visit this part of the river is early in the morning or at noon. After a boat trip of about 2 hours, you will arrive in Xingping. This ancient village is not yet touched by tourism as much as Yangshuo. We will visit the Old Street in Xingping and have lunch there. Our driver will meet us in Xingping and drive us back to Yangshuo. On the way, you have the opportunity to make a halt in Fuli village, if you are interested. This Old town is famous for its fan painting workshops where fans are handmade and handpainted. Some days there is the farmers’ market in Fuli, with many interesting things to see like the local dentist and traditional Chinese medicine. Local people sell and trade their own goods. (This is not a tourist market, it’s organized by and for local people.)

Available: Daily
Duration: 1 day
Starts/Ends: on your request
Attractions: Tea Farm, Xianggong Hill, Bamboo boat on Li River, Old stone village
Transport included: car or van, and bicyles
(You can click on links to read more about the activities or attractions)

 

I will pick you up at your hotel after your breakfast. We then take a car or van to see one of the most scenic and less travelled routes of Yangshuo. On the way we will visit the Seven Star Tea Farm, where you discover the beauty of the tea tree hills and the origin of your tea. You get to taste tea (this is not a tea scam!) and the farm’s staff will teach you about tea culture in the tea farm. We then continue on the road towards Xianggong Hill. There are many beautiful views of the mountains and the orange tree farms along the way. The famous beautiful sunrise view is on the top of the Xianggong Hill. You can climb this mountain to take amazing pictures and it’s very easy hiking up and down. We can have lunch at the foot of the mountain at a farmer’s restaurant. Then I bring you the Li River for a trip with a motorized bamboo boat. Amongst others, you will be able to see the real view that corresponds to the back of 20 rmb note, nearby Xingping town on  the Li River. The boat then brings you back to where you first started the boat trip. The scenery along the boat trip is regarded as the most beautiful view of the Li River. After the bamboo boat ride, we will visit the Old Stone Village which is about 1400 years old and where the houses were built without cement. After the visit, I bring you back to your hotel following another road, to let you enjoy the unique and beautiful scenery along the countryside roads.
