Yangshuo Bridge, Fuli bridge, bamboo rafting on peaceful Yulong River, old village, Cuiping Hill Your guide and driver will pick you up at 4:30 a.m. or 5:00 a.m., depending on the season. We will drive you to Yangshuo Bridge to capture the sunrise, then return you to your hotel for breakfast. After breakfast, we’ll drive to visit the ancient Fuli stone arch bridge. Then you’ll float down the peaceful Yulong River on a bamboo raft (about two hours), photographing the bamboos and karst peaks and their reflections in the river. After rafting, we’ll visit an old village, where you will have the opportunity to make photographic portraits of men and women inside old houses.
At about 5:00 p.m., we will drive to Cuiping Hill for a sunset photo shoot, with views of rice fields, fruit orchards, villages, and karst peaks. A beautiful idyllic spot!

Sunrise from Xianggong Hill, Laozhai Hill, Li River cruise, old town, local market Your guide and driver will pick you up at 4:00am and drive you through the most scenic and less touristed country routes to Xianggong Hill. The drive takes about one hour, with stops to enjoy beautiful views of the peaceful countryside, the Li River valley, and karst mountains along the way.
At Xianggong Hill, a fifteen-minute climb up stone steps will take you to a bird's-eye panoramic view of the Li River and unique karst mountains. This is a famous site for photography, especially at sunrise.
We will then drive you back to Yangshuo or to your hotel for breakfast, after which we will drive to Laozhai Hill. From the top of the hill, you can photograph the Li River and the town of Xingping. The scenery is gorgeous.
We will then stroll along the old street of Xingping, have some lunch, and experience the peace of life in the countryside.
In the afternoon, we will take a cruise on the Li River from Xingping to Nine Horses Hill, then back to Xingping. The round trip takes 1 hour.
At 6:00 p.m., we will take you for a sunset photo shoot of fishermen with their cormorants before returning you to your hotel.
