Guilin Bike & Bamboo Raft Tour
Between 9 am and 10:30 am on the day of your tour, you'll be picked up from your hotel in Guilin and taken deep into the verdant natural landscapes around Yangshuo.
Begin your adventure in Guilin climbing aboard a traditional bamboo raft and sailing down the Yulong River. Throughout the two hour cruise along the tranquil waters, you'll be surrounded by the unique scenery of Guilin: rice paddies, tiny rural villages and the towering green karst mountains... don't forget your camera!
Disembark back onto dry land next to Jiuxian bridge, where you'll continue onto the next part of your excursion: cycling around Yangshuo on a bike tour. You'll spend two hours pedalling alongside the banks of the Yulong River while discovering fascinating facts about the nature and culture of this beautiful region.
Your bike tour will come to an end in the historic town of Jiuxian, where you'll have an hour of free time to eat lunch at your leisure (not included). After eating, you'll meet back up to visit one of the village's most famous spots: West Street.
