“The real China experience”

LaoJia is a fabulous getaway from the hussle and bussle of travel in China. A great place to unwind...
My family of 5 (mum, sisters and 11 year old daughter) stayed with Eric and Maarten for 3 days during the public holiday period. We had been travelling in China for 2 weeks prior.
A lovely (and safe) lady driver transported us from Guilin to Yangdi village, where we were further transported to Langshi Village on a raft boat. The scenery was breathtaking (and we would have saved ourselves many RMB the day before on a tour which took us to nearly the same spot, save yourself the money and do this instead).
LaoJia is tranquil and a step back in time. Eric and Maarten have done a terrific job in bringing a unique experience to foreigners ie: a taste of the real China. We were fortunate that a funeral ceremony/celebration was taking place in the village during our stay and we were able to experience first hand how a village celebrates life as a community. Apart from this we also headed for the mountains to watch a goat herder round up his herd of goats, went in search of bats in a nearby cave and accompanied a local farmer as she attended her orange grove. There is as little or as much as you want to do here.
I highly recommend this experience.

“A very memorable trip.”

We stayed at Laojia for 2 nights in March. The weather was very good for hiking. We missed Eric during our stay but Marteen's an awesome host. He brought us from Yangdi to Langshi in his bamboo boat and made breakfast for everyone. He also led us up the mountains to meet his friend and see goats and to a local farmer's market.
Loajia is very well furnished and renovated. There is wifi (which works very well compared to city hotels) and hot water in the bathroom. There are sitting areas in the house and porch thats good for rest and chat. It is very quiet at night and there can be noises from the kitchen, but I had very good sleep because of the hiking.
The river is very peaceful and quiet in the early hours when there are no boats yet.
The journey to the village from the railway station was not very difficult, I'll recommend the bus route.
