GUILIN & YANGTZE CRUISING


The Li and Yangtze Rivers carve a way through some of the most unforgettable vistas in China. Cruising through the karst landscapes around Guilin and Yangshuo, or along the magnificent gorges that border Asia’s longest river is, for many, one of the highlights of a Chinese journey. Cycling through the surrounding countryside gets you closer to rural China amongst stunning scenery.


GUILIN & THE LI RIVER Guilin lies along the western banks of the Li River, with some of the most breathtaking scenery in the country, its landscapes reputed to be the ’finest under heaven’ according to Chinese proverbs. The city is ideally placed to explore the attractions that lie along the Li River including a day cruise to Yangshuo.


SHANGRI-LA GUILIN Located overlooking the lovely landscapes of the Li River, the Shangri-La offers engaging river views, a comprehensive range of leisure facilities, a superb choice of dining options and 449 of the largest and most luxurious rooms in the city.


YANGSHUO Set amidst a tranquil landscape of limestone pinnacles and cormorant fishermen lies the market town of Yangshuo. Perfect for exploring or relaxing, Yangshuo’s location provides a great contrast to the bustle of city life.


YANGSHUO COOKERY SCHOOL Learn how to cook Chinese food in a traditional setting. Courses are designed to teach from a practical viewpoint, with participants involved in every aspect of the meal. Intimate and informal, you can choose from 1 or 2-day programmes and advanced or private classes.


LONGJI RICE TERRACES Visited as a day trip from Guilin, these spectacular contoured terraces on the outskirts of Longsheng are the ‘Dragon’s Backbone’ rice terraces, an extraordinary series of shapes and patterns that have been carved out of the steep sided valleys over centuries of back-breaking labour.


LIAN LODGE, LONGJI Lovingly created and stunningly located, Lian Lodge sits on top of a mountain overlooking the breathtaking contours of the Longji Rice Terraces. Offering idyllic tranquillity and a choice of 16 beautifully appointed rooms, it superbly combines modern comfort with all the rich elements of Chinese tradition.


GUANGXI & GUIZHOU These neighbouring provinces are ideal for the adventurous traveller. Relatively untouched, Guangxi and Guizhou provide a natural and cultural treasure trove, including the Huangguoshu Falls, the largest in all of Asia.


MINORITY TRIBES This region is rich in ethnic diversity, with Miao, Dong and Han villages dotted throughout the area. Is olated for generations, these tribal communities have retained many of their old traditions, providing a fascinating insight into a way of life that has been lost to many.
