After breakfast, we will set out to Huangyao Ancient Town by 2 hours' driving. With a history of nearly 1,000 years, this ancient town is initially formed in the Song Dynasty (960 - 1279). And it is named so because most residences there boast the family names of Huang and Yao. The town is of typical karst landform with eight main natural scenic spots and twenty four small ones. There are also more than 20 temples and ancestral halls, and more than 10 pavilions and towers, most of which are the architectures in the Ming and Qing Dynasties (1368 - 1911). The guide will accompany you to tour the Ancient Opera Stage, Immortal Ancient Well, An'le Temple and Leading Dragon Bridge.

Yulong River
In the morning, we will head to Shui'edi Port to experience the bamboo rafting on Yulong River. Yulong River is the longest tributary of Li River in Yangshuo with a total length of 43.5 kilometers (27 miles). When sailing across the dam, you will feel thrilled and excited. And when floating in the smooth area, you will be in leisure and pleasant mood. The drift lasts about 50 minutes. Afterwards, drive to Fuli Town located 8 kilometers (5 miles) east of Yangshuo. In the beginning, the lychee trees here have grown into forests and the houses are hidden in the forests. So it is called Fuli Village (Hidden Lychee Village). Later, it changed to a homophonic name which means welfare in Chinese. Now, the ancient architectures here blend with the splendid scenery, forming a beautiful picture. It is also the famous hometown of fans in China. There is a 100-meter-long (109-yard-long) Fan Street selling painted fans and hanging pictures. If interested, you can also try to paint one by yourself. Finally, we will drive back to Yangshuo.

Stalagmites in the cave are in various shapes like towers, waterfalls, bridges and so on. And the winding underground river is clear enough to see the fish and wide enough to take a sightseeing boat. In the end, you will be escorted to the airport for the onward flight.
