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.

The views on Li river where great even if it was foggy. Great time on a boat. Our guide in Guilin and Yangshuo Henry did a great job. Knowledgeable, interesting story teller showed us real China. We saw Yao people minority and it was interesting experience.

One of the most beautiful terraced fields in China! I like the view at any time of the year. Now they were covered with rice and other crops, but also look beautiful in spring when they are flooded with water. In the village you can meet representatives of various ethnic groups, for example. Yao. The views from the top part... More
