Guilin, famed as "the finest scenery under heaven", is one of the regions you must visit in China. Guilin is excellent for either a leisurely vacation or an outdoor adventure. Picturesque Li River flows through Guilin and Yangshuo, with fascinating Karst peaks along the way. The magnificent Longji Rice Terraces in the minority mountain area of Longsheng has never failed to amaze its visitors.

First, I can't say enough good things about COT and our overall experience - they were excellent to work with (I review them further elsewhere).

Our guide, Jessica, in Guilin was wonderful! She went out of her way to make our trip extra special. The Li River Cruise in Guilin and the Longji Terraced Rice Field were the highlights of our entire trip in China. The view of the mountains from the cruise was magical.
