About Your Trip
Don’t forget your camera! You’ll want to capture every moment of your time in Guilin, one of the most dramatic settings in China — a remarkable landscape of limestone karst hills and caves, verdant bamboo forests, majestic rice terraces, long, meandering rivers and so much more.
Within this spectacular scenic backdrop is your incredible hideaway, Banyan Tree Yangshuo, the first and only luxury spa-resort by the Li River. It’s the perfect place to unplug and unwind with your loved ones in tow, offering plenty to do for all ages and energy levels — since you create your own itinerary on this DreamBreak, your choice of fun is entirely up to you!
You can take your vacation up a notch with included activities, including a river rafting excursion. Spend an idyllic day drifting along the tranquil Li River aboard your resort’s private bamboo raft — manned by resort crew, the raft is traditionally built, but with modern comforts. Also included is a delightful afternoon tea experience for all ages, while adult guests can take advantage of the included 60-minute full-body massage for complete revitalization and rejuvenation. As a pioneer of oriental spas in Asia, Banyan Tree Spa reintroduces exotic blend of ancient health and time-honored beauty practices.
What we love:
From the private balcony of your resort suite, you’ll not only enjoy the fresh air, you’ll enjoy stunning views of Pagoda Lake. Changing at different angles, the water reflects the landscapes like a Chinese ink painting.
If you opt for an evening rafting excursion along the Li River, you may catch sight of a unique local custom — fishing with birds. With this centuries-old tradition, fishermen glide along the river at nightfall with cormorants trained to catch and bring back fish to their owners.
The most popular spot in Li River Cruise ranges 83 kilometers from Guilin to Yangshuo and is famous for the Karst Mountain and river sights. It was selected as one of the world’s top 10 watery wonders by America’s National Geographic magazine.
