Full description
Day 1 Start with a pick-up from your hotel in downtown Guilin. Then, you will be transferred to Longsheng by hotel shuttle bus. After a 3-hour drive, you will arrive at Jinkeng and start a 3-hour hiking tour escorted by hotel staff from Hotel Quanjinglou, a hotel located on the highest point of Longsheng Rice Terraces, and is the best available hotel in the area of Jinkeng. This area is filled with hills known for its amazing rice terraces with a history going back more than 700 years. The best time to visit Longsheng Rice Terraces is during spring, when the rice paddies are watering for the planting season. Alternatively, October is another good time to visit during the harvest.  Day 2 After breakfast, you will walk for 2-hours, from the hotel to the bus terminal, through large areas of rice terraces and 2 villages: Dazhai and Tiantou village. Most often, you will be walking on stone roads but sometimes also on trails built on rice paddies. You will have plenty of photo opportunities along the way. Please leave enough time for walking and photography. The hotel shuttle bus will drop you off at Xiangjiang Hotel, which is near Guilin Railway Station.

Superb, but we may lose time to orient ourselves. No French speaking staff at the hotel, not even English, just the basics to tell you where the room is. It would take 1 plan worthy of the name to justify the price
