Tour Details


Guilin’s is reputed as one of the world’s most beautiful places. Its idyllic scenery draws millions of tourists from near and far every year. Located in southern China, the picturesque city sits on the banks of the Lijiang River. Quieter Yangshuo is a little farther downstream, set against a stunning backdrop of emerald limestone karsts.

What to Expect

Unlike most mountains, the karst hills of Yangshuo rise randomly as the Li River meanders around their base. Covered in lush, green vegetation, the natural formations create a dramatic landscape best viewed from Yangshuo’s natural arch, known as Moon Hill. On the river, fishermen in traditional boats and garb make for spectacular photographs, particularly in the light of the rising sun.

  • Lush landscapes
  • Exploring Villages
  • Liu San Jie Show
  • Photographing fishermen and comorants

DAY 1 – Guilin / Yangshuo
Upon arrival, we will proceed to Yangshuo. Tonight, we will visit one of the best shows in China – Impression Sanjie Liu, in a theatre that blends with the natural environment. We will then check-in to our hotel and rest for night.

Meals: (D)

DAY 2 to 4 – Yangshuo / XinPing
After breakfast, we will proceed to Xinping to photograph the fisherman and cormorants, and other iconic scenes along the Li river.

Once, in ancient times, Xingping was the largest town along the Li River, and is 63 km (39 miles) from Guilin and 25 km (15.5 miles) from Yangshuo, on the east bank of the river. The town is really a beautiful place, surrounded by enthralling scenery.

Lying on the east bank of the Li River upstream from Yangshuo, the fishing village has a history dating back more than 500 years. Founded during the Ming Dynasty in 1506, this picturesque village is infused with typical Lingnan or southeastern Chinese provincial culture.

There are 48 traditional residences that have been remarkably well preserved throughout the years. Special features of these residences include blue brickwork, black tiles, sloping roofs, horse head walls, cornices and carved windows. The houses are classic examples of Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynastic architecture.

Natural scenery in the area is eye-catching. A variety of mountains including Liyu (carp), Jinwa (golden tile), Yuanbao and Jiandao (sword and blade) stand aside as if they are bodyguards protecting this small village.

Traveling in the Yangshuo-Xingping area, you can actually experience the life of local fishermen by going fishing with them. Their fishing techniques are unlike anything you’ve ever seen. They use bamboo rafts instead of wooden boats and they use cormorants to catch the fish. They do this by tying a noose around a bird’s long neck to prevent it from swallowing its catch.

Exact photography locations will depend on weather conditions.
Meals: (B,L,D)

DAY 5 – Guilin
Check out hotel in early morning, we will climb up Elephant Trunk Hill for a sunrise shoot. After breakfast, we will proceed back to Guilin for our flight back home. This is the end of our expedition.

Meals: (B)
