3 Days Guilin and Longji Rice Terraces Tour

Day 1: Guilin Arrival/City Highlights Tour

Meals included: no meals

Hello, welcome to Guilin! Your flight will arrive in the morning. Take time for the plane to stop completely, to get off the plane, claim the luggage, and finally get to the arrival hall to meet your warmhearted private guide. (If taking an afternoon flight, we can adjust the itinerary accordingly)
If there is no traffic congestion, we’ll drive about 40 to 50 minutes to your hotel in downtown area and check in.

(13:00-17:30) You will visit two scenic attractions this afternoon. Firstly, private transfer to Folded Brocade Hill, right next to Li River in city center. Normally it takes about 30 minutes to hike up to the top, but the hill walking path is a bit steep for the elderly, so you must be very careful. And your guide will pay extra care to you.

What to see on Folded Brocade Hill include the peculiar but beautiful stones and caves, inscriptions on cliffs, ancient pavilions and pagodas, gardens and even a butterfly specimen room. Standing on the hill summit or the lookout, you will be rewarded with the panoramic view of Guilin, composed of low-rise buildings, numerous limestone peaks, and Li River flowing through…   

Secondly, drive for about 15 minutes to visit Reed Flute Cave, close to Peach blossom River and swathes of farmlands. The cave was an underground lake millions of years ago, and formed due to crustal movement and calcium carbonate, through long ages into a splendid karst cave what you see today. Wonder at the diverse stalactites and stalagmites, while appreciating the ancient murals with a sensitive heart.

Day 2: Guilin-Longji Terraced Fields-Guilin

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch

(08:30-11:30) After breakfast, drive about 2.5 hours to Longji Rice Terraces Scenic Area in Longsheng Country. Today we’ll visit the Dazhai Jinken section, with less tourists than Ping’an rice terraces. More importantly, there is round-trip cable car, very good choice for senior tourists.
[11:30-13:00] Lunch time – after getting to the destination, have lunch at a local restaurant. Guilin and Longsheng specialty foods will be served for you to a special culinary experience.  

(13:00-16:00) To save your energy and time, you will take cable car (20 minutes’ ride) from the bottom to the top of Dazhai rice terrace and get to the Jinfoding Lookout (at 1100m), for a full picture of the breathtaking terraces.

Get an opportunity to visit local Red Yao Ethnic village, where the people are enthusiastic and very friendly. The girls usually dress in traditional red costumes and keep very long hair (1 to 2 meters long). The locals are also good at making handicraft. Here you can find exquisite brocade, embroidery and batik cloth.

Drive back to Guilin. After a busy day, have ample rest and sleep adequately.

You may want to know:

  • Regarding today’s trip to Dazhai Rice Terraces, we suggest you return to Guilin as described on the itinerary, for two reasons. First, you don’t have to move from one hotel to another. Second, by far accommodations in Dazhai Jinken are still pretty basic. Nevertheless, we can adjust your itinerary for one night stay in Dazhai if you wish.
