Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Bicycle tour around Yangshuo countryside

I will pick you up by car from your hotel after your breakfast. We drive to the Dragon Bridge on the Yulong River. This bridge is one of the oldest (500 years) and largest free standing stone arch bridges in China. From there, take a relaxing 2 hour bamboo raft ride on the Yulong River (not motorized, but guided with a pole). I will be waiting for you at the end of the raft ride, with bicycles.

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 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. The evening you are free to relax in your hotel or enjoy the center of Yangshuo.

Day 2:  Li River bamboo boat trip –Drive to the airport

After finish your breakfast, I will meet you at your hotel and then drive with you to Xingping. You can visit Fuli, an old town, along the way if you are interested. Here in Fuli you can see a fan painting workshop (where they also make the fans themselves). On some days there is a farmers’ market in Fuli (if the date ends with 2, 5 or 8, there is the farmer’s market in) where there are many interesting things to see like the dentist, and use of traditional Chinese medicine. Local people sell and trade their own goods (this not a tourist market, it’s just for the locals). We then proceed to visit Xingping old town. From there, you will then take a motorized bamboo boat from Xingping to Yangti. This stretch of river is regarded as the most scenic on the Li River. The driver will meet you again in Yangti to drive you to the Guilin airport for your flight (unless you continue your travels otherwise, of course).

 Tips:

  1. As Ping’An village offers better accommodation and food, and it requires a shorter and easier hike up the mountain, I suggest you stay the night in the Ping’An village rather than in the Dazai village.
  2. Also your hotel might be located in the middle of the mountain. You might not need to take much luggage with you when hiking many steps up to the hotel. Instead you can prepare a small bag just take some essential things needed to spend the night in the village. You can store your luggage in a luggage shop, it might cost RMB 20/bag for the overnight. Or if you wish, you can pay for the local people in the Ping’An village to carry the luggage up to your hotel. It usually costs around RMB 30/bag—50/bag, depending on the size of the bag.
  3. If it’s a rainy day, it might be a little bit difficult for the hiking path. We can adapt the trip at that point, or else you need to be physically fit enough to continue.
  4. If you are not a good hiker, we can drive you to the Dazai village. There is a cable car there that you can take up and down the hill (you could also then hike down the hill).
  5. The trip can start and end in either Guilin, Yangshuo or at Guilin airport, depending on your plans and needs.
