Greeting from Italy!

 

We had a safe trip back home and, once jet-lag was gone, everything is back to normal.

The travel has been a fantastic, unique experience I will never forget. Thanks for setting everything so well, so precisely, so perfectly! Everything was really great, from the hotels to the guides. So...thank you! The only thing you couldn't really do anything on was the weather.  Maybe next time you can "book" also some sunny weather for us, ok? ^_^

That was my pleasure to meet you in Chengdu. I promise next time I'll come to China I'll be able to read the book you gave me ^_^

 

Here Autumn has come, it's quite cold and i miss pandas very much...

 

Many thanks for your email, hope to hear from you soon.

Day01 Arrival Guilin
Today you arrive in Guilin, China's most scenic city. Greeted and received by your local guide and escorted to your hotel in town. The rest of day is at your own disposal.


Day02 Guilin - Longsheng - Sanjiang (B, L)Longji Rice Terrace
This morning you will head out for Sanjiang. The first two hour drive takes you to Longsheng for its remarkable attraction, Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces (Longji Rice Terraces). Located about 27 kilometers southeast of Longsheng County, the Longji Rice Terraces is of imposing beauty which is reputed as "unrivalled in the world". It was first built in the Yuan dynasty and completed in the Qing dynasty as the crystallization of the wisdom and diligence of the Zhuang people. The terraced fields are built along the slope winding from the riverside up to the mountaintop, with the highest place of an altitude of 885m and the lowest 380m, covering an area of 66 square kilometers. The coiling line spirals up from the mountain foot to the top, making the mountain looks like huge snail seen from afar. Standing on the mountain, you will be shocked by the patches of fields and curve lines around the mountains. You will then pay a visit to the Villages of Zhuang and Yao minority to experience the unique Chinese ethnic culture and see the Suspension Bridge in small size. Then continue the trip to Sanjiang.


Day03 Sanjiang - Guilin (B, L)Wind and Rain Bridge Sanjiang
Today you will take a Dong Minority tour to the Dong Village in Sanjiang. Situated at the foot of mountains and surrounded by rivers, Dong Village features well-preserved residential houses and charming natural landscape. In the village, you will see the landmark constructions of Dong village, the Wind and Rain Bridge and the Drum Tower. Chengyang Wind and Rain Bridge, also known as Yongji Bridge or Panlong Bridge, was built in 1916. It is 64.4 meters long, 10.6 meters wide and 10.6 meters high. Completely made of wood and stone, it is one of the most magnificent wooden architectural structures. You will be amazed that the bridge was constructed using not a single nail or rivet! Pieces of wood are closely jointed to each other. Though decades old, it is still very sturdy and in use. The bridge is inlayed with railings on both sides, and on the bridge there are 5 tower-shaped kiosks with many horns. Many huge wooden mill wheels dotted on the hillsides beside the village, you can see or even hear the water running slowly to turn around the wheels. The Drum Tower is always located in the center of a village, acting as the political and cultural center. Every time when the chief of the village beats the drum on the top floor, villagers will stop their work and get together around the Drum Tower. Later of the day you will take a comfortable and cozy vehicle back to Guilin.



Day04 Guilin - Yangshuo (B, L)Li River Guilin
Guilin is perhaps China's most scenic city. It is no doubt that the best way to enjoy its picturesque scenery is from a floating deck of a luxury cruise on the Li River. Your guide and driver will transfer you from your hotel to Zhujiang Pier to board your wonderful river cruise tour to Yangshuo. Li River, also known as Guishui River or Gui River, takes its source at Mao'er Mountain in Xing'an County, which lies to northeast Guilin, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. Li River makes its way through Guilin and Yangshuo and merges into Xijiang River in Wuzhou. The mountains on the banks over 40 kilometers long between Guilin and Yangshuo display their extraordinary beauty as a result of the development of the limestone. More than 40,000 hills lie along the two sides of the river, covering a total length of more than 150 kilometers. With their astonishing resemblance to bamboo shoot, screen, elephant and camel, these mountains, together with green banyans and green bamboo as well as the cottages and fishing boats, contribute to form a scenery picture depicting a haven of peace dominated by green. After a 4.5 hours cruise on the river you will finally make disembarkation at Yangshuo and enjoy some relax time at the West Street.

 
Day05 Yangshuo - Guilin (B, L)Elephant Trunk Hill Guilin
Transfer back Guilin in the morning. You will visit Reed Flute Cave. Comprising different kinds of natural rock formations, Reed Flute Cave (Lu Di Yan) is the most important and sight worthy cave of Guilin vicinity for its length of 240 meters and its many stalactites, stalagmites and rock formations in weird and wonderful shapes appealing to everyone's imagination. Make a trip to the Fubo Hill. You can see lots of rock stone carvings & Buddha statues dated back to the Chinese Tang Dynasty. Have a wonderful bird's-eye view of Guilin city if you climb to the summit. After that you will visit the Elephant Trunk Hill, located at the confluence of the Li River and Peach Blossom River in the south central area of Guilin City. It looks like a huge elephant stretching its trunk and drinking water, hence the name. Elephant Trunk Hill is the symbol of Guilin and its limestone landscape
.
