    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Xianggong Mountain, Xingping Town, Yangshuo County 541906 China

    Time: 10:00 – 10:50

    It is about 1.5 hours driving to from Guilin city. You may take more than a hundred steps to climb up, normally it takes 10-15 minutes, you will climb up to the peak of the hill where you’ll be taken aback by the amazing view of the beautiful karst landscape set as countless hills around the Li River. If you are a shutterbug, you can‘t miss this place. Tens of thousands of award-winning pictures were taken there. If you are lucky, you‘ll see the sea of clouds around the hills and rivers — it’s a wonderful view.

    Duration: 50 minutes

    Stop At: Jiuxian Ancient Village, Yangshuo County China

    Time: 11:50 – 12:40

    After driving for about 1 hour from Xianggong Hill, you’ll arrive at the rural paths near the Yulong River.

    Take a bicycle or an electric scooter ride along the beautiful countryside paths next to the Yulong River where the water flows silently, the birds are singing, and flowers are blooming. Watch the local farmers ride their ox carts as they plow the fields. Everything is so peaceful, harmonious, and perfect. Forget all your troubles while you feel like staying in paradise.

    Duration: 50 minutes

    Stop At: Xingping Scenic Area, Yangshuo, Guilin, Guangxi, China

    Time: 15:00 – 16:30

    Arriving at Yangdi Wharf, where you will enjoy a private raft trip. You will drift along the most beautiful part of the Li River for about 1 hour, from Yangdi to Nine-Horse Painted Hill, and then back to Xingping.

    As you drift on the most beautiful rivir in China, you’ll feel like you are in a Chinese traditional painting. The breeze will gently blow on your face, the hills will pass you by and the celar water will flow beneath you. Just let time pause and enjoy the scenery and the moment.

    If you have a 20 yuan Chinese bank note, look at the illustration on the back of it — it is the scenery that’s directly in front of your eyes.

    Duration: 1 hour 10 minutes

    We are so glad that you had a great day in our one-day Yangshuo tour with Lily even though it was not a very good weather. Lily is a very experienced local guide, and knows well about how to meet the best view of Yangshuo. Li River also has a different but wonderful view in a rainy or foggy day. Hope you have a nice travel in China!
