Day 1
Your flight to Hong Kong leaves San Francisco or Los Angeles this afternoon, as you fly across the Pacific Ocean and the International Date Line

Day 2
Arriving in Hong Kong in the evening, proceed to the meeting point for our hotel transfer after clearing customs & immigration.

Day 3
After breakfast join a guided city tour of Hong Kong. Leaving the island of Kowloon,  travel via the Cross-Harbour Tunnel to Hong Kong Island. Driving by Wanchai you reach Victoria Peak for a great view of the city, the busy harbor, the skyline and the surrounding area – a fabulous picture postcard view! Leaving the Peak, you continue to Aberdeen village where traditional Chinese junks rub shoulders with fishing boats bringing in the latest catch and huge floating restaurant boats. And all this against the backdrop of the impressive skyline! You can choose to stay in the area for dinner etc., or return to the hotel late after the tour.

Day 4
You have a day at leisure to explore this fascinating city on your own!

Day 5
The morning is free for some last minute sightseeing or shopping; this afternoon you will be transferred to the airport for your flight to Guilin, arriving late in the evening, where you will be met and transferred to your hotel.

Day 6
In the morning visit the ‘Red Flute Cave’, a limestone cave with impressive stalagmites and stalactites, climb up the 326 steps to Fubo Hill and enjoy a birds’ eye view of Guilin. Then proceed to ancient South Gate, which was built during the Ming Dynasty approx. 600 years ago and see the Ming Prince’s mansion, which now houses the local University.

Next, you will be driven to Yangshuo, approx. 50 miles away and enjoy the beautiful landscape on the way, passing through small villages with farmers working the fields. Upon arrival, check into your hotel and after a brief rest your guide will take you for a walk through this fascinating town. The rest of the day is free for you to explore Yangshuo on your own.

Day 7
Leave Yangshou after breakfast this morning and head towards Xingping, where you will board your cruise boat. During the next 3-4 hours we cruise on the Li River and simply enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the majestic mountains (their peaks often covered with clouds & fog) rising from the riverbanks. The lush green vegetation and the mist create a magical atmosphere.  Pass fishing villages en route and enjoy a Chinese lunch on board.

Day 8
Early this morning (shortly after midnight) fly back to the US, arriving home just before noon.
