Day 2 Guilin to Longsheng to Sanjiang (B, L)

Today you will take a Dong Minority tour to the Dong Village in Sanjiang. Situated at the foot of mountains and surrounded by rivers, Dong village features well-preserved residential houses and charming natural landscape. We will visit two landmark spots there-the Wind and Rain Bridge and the Drum Tower. The bridge reflects the Unique Dong style and the wisdom of the Dong people, by blending the styles of bridge, corridor and kiosk into a whole. The bridge was built as a shelter for the people who worked in fields, but later became a date place for the young people. The Drum Tower acts as the political and cultural center of the village. Every time when the chief of the village beats the drum, villagers will stop their work and get together around the tower.
Return to Guilin for overnight.

Day 4 Guilin to Yangshuo (B, L)

After a 4 hour sailing, arrive at Yangshuo old county. We will visit the historical West Street, which is now called ‘Foreigners’ Street’ because of the large number of foreign residents here who also open bars, restaurants and shops in the street. Then we do a biking tour to explore the countryside of Yangshuo.

Day 5 Yangshuo (B)
Free day for you to explore the small town of Yangshuo. You are suggested to visit the famous Moon Hill and the Big Banyan Tree. The Moon Hill is so named for a wide, semicircular hole through the hill. Climbing to the arch of the hill is a popular activity, taking roughly 20 minutes. The Big Banyan Tree is 1,500 years old, like a giant green umbrella providing a natural shelter for passers-by. The West Street is a good place for nightlife.
