Itinerary: We’ll meet you in the hotel at 8:30 am and cycle along the main road to Baisha for about an hour. We’ll stop off and visit the fruit market in the town which is the largest in the Yangshuo area.

We’ll take a left turn off the main street in Baisha and head straight for 20 minutes. We’ll take another left turn along a small path that leads past many small villages. After continuing for around another 20 minutes, we’ll reach Fuli Bridge which is over 600 hundred years old. This area is off the beaten track away from where most tourists go. It is also a very serene and scenic area.

We’ll then cycle to the Yulong Bridge which is equally as old and there are also several ancient villages in this area. We’ll continue on to Jiuxin Village which is over 1400 years old. The buildings are traditional and the setting is beautiful. We’ll have lunch here in a farmhouse restaurant.

After a short break, we’ll head to Chaoyang Village. The stretch of the river that we head along is particularly beautiful here. After crossing Yimi Bridge we’ll arrive at the Moon Hill scenic area near the Big Banyan Tree. After taking a few photos, we’ll turn left from the main road along a countryside path and pass through several villages on the way back to Yangshuo.

Day 3: We’ll cycle for the whole morning and then take a Li River cruise in the evening along the most beautiful stretch of the Li River.

Distance: 18 km.

Duration: 2 and a half hours.

Route: Yangshuo----Fuli----Cross the Li River by boat---- Dutou Village----Silong Village----Mushan Village----Yangshuo

Note: In the early evening we will go to Xingping by minivan and then take a boat cruise to Yangdi before then returning to Yangshuo.

Itinerary: We’ll meet you at the hotel at 8:30 am and cycle across Yangshuo Bridge. The view from here affords a beautiful view of Green Lotus Hill. We’ll head along the main road to Fuli Town which will take around an hour. This town is famous for its painters and traditional fans. We’ll stop off at the house of a local expert, who will show us how they make the fans.

We’ll then take a fishing boat across the Li River to Dutou Village. We’ll cycle from here to Mushan Village. It’ll take us around 30 minutes to cycle from here back to Yangshuo Town.

We’ll then take a rest and have lunch. In the afternoon at around 3pm, we’ll take our minivan to Xingping. We’ll then take a bamboo boat or a fishing boat from Xingping to Yangdi. We can then relax and enjoy the sunset and then head back to Yangshuo.

Day 4: We will transfer you to the airport by private car. The plan for this day depends on your departure time. If you have a later flight, we can organise one of several activities for you such as a cooking or tai chi class, swimming or a massage.
