"Guilin's scenery is the best in the world and Yangshuo's scenery is the best in Guilin." It is not hard to understand that if you are standing right before the scenery of Guilin. Yangshuo County, under the jurisdiction of Guilin, is the most worthwhile place to explore. Today, we will get there and enjoy a Yangshuo day trip to see the charming landscapes.
Nine-Horse Fresco Hill
In the morning, your guide will meet you at the hotel you booked on your own in Guilin at the designated time. Afterwards, we will take a clean, comfortable air-conditioned private car for about 1.5 hours to Yangshuo.

First, we head to the port to have the most beautiful bamboo rafting tour on Yulong River. It takes about 50 minutes to finish a 2.5-kilometer (1.5-mile) route. A skilled rafter will take you through an idyllic, tranquil wonderland you’ve never experienced before. Besides the limpid water, you can also feast your eyes on those grotesque karst mountains on both sides. After jumping off the raft, you will be given a ride to have a countryside tour to appreciate a picturesque rural landscape. If you are interested in outdoor activities, it is also a good choice to go sightseeing by bike. Please inform your guide in advance to help you rent a bike. Halfway through, we will also pay a visit to a local peasant’s home, where you get to know about the local customs and cultures.

Xingping Ancient Town
Afterwards, we go to the 1,730-year-old Xingping Ancient Town, a bustling market town in the past and now a quiet, peaceful scenic area, which offers the most splendid perspectives along Li River. Here, most ancient buildings typical of local traditional architecture are preserved well, including bridges, theatrical stages, and temples. Immerse yourself in the ancient atmosphere for some time, and then go on rafting again to appreciate the Nine-Horse Fresco Hill, the most spectacular spot by the river. The hillside in your view is like a large mural painting with its varied colors and formations resembling nine horses, hence the name. It’s said that only the smartest among the smart can spot all of these horses, while the ordinary can find up to seven. It is said that the former US president Bill Clinton found eight horses while enjoying a tour here. Want to have a try? Follow your guide to see how many horses you can spot.

After the Yangshuo day trip ends, you will be transferred back to the hotel in Guilin.
