Guilin Short Stop -The uniqueness of the limestone mountain landscape makes Guilin one of China’s best known holiday destinations.

On this tour we will take you on a cruise of the unforgettable Li River with photo opportunities at every turn, give you a chance to bargain in the market town of Yangshuo, or perhaps cycle through the surrounding verdant farmlands.
