Exploring Guilin By Bike

By Viator, June 2018

5 10 Reviews | Add your review

The limestone karsts, lazy rivers and winding paths of Guangxi Province in the southwestern portion of the country represent rural China at its most beautiful. Thanks to the area’s peculiar scenery, the countryside surrounding Guilin has become one of the most popular cycling destinations in China -- a place where visitors of all ages and abilities can enjoy a day (or more) in the saddle.

One of the most popular day trip options from Guilin is to the nearby town of Yangshuo, nestled amid some of the province’s best karst scenery. From this small town, hop on a bike to explore rural Guangxi along the banks of the Li River. In a day, you can peddle past some of the area’s most iconic attractions, including Moon Hill and Big Banyan, and be back at your Guilin hotel the very same night.

While most tourists travel between Guilin and Yangshuo by car or by boat, adventurous visitors can make the journey by bike. On a 2-day biking adventure from Guilin to Yangshuo, you’ll cycle past bamboo groves and tiny villages along the banks of the Li River, dine on local specialties (like beer fish), take challenging dirt paths that wind amid the karsts and stop for market visits, boat rides or a swim in the smaller Yulong River before arriving in Yangshuo.

The family that bikes together, stays together, and in from Guilin, you and your family can bond during a 5-day Yangshuo biking adventure. During this kid-friendly and very active exploration of the region, you’ll have the chance to stay in rural villages, tour karsts from the inside, float along the Jade Dragon River, learn to prepare a few traditional Yangshuo specialties and, of course, enjoy the region’s sublime scenery by bike.
