Most travelers travel to China only once in their lifetime. World Spree want to ensure you have all the resources in planning your dream vacation. Please read the following information regarding the level of activity you can expect and your physical requirements specific to this China trip.
This trip is suitable for World Spree travelers who live an active lifestyle, enjoy good health and mobility, are comfortable participating in 3-5 hours of daily physical activities and sightseeing, and are able to walk 2-3 miles unassisted over the course of each day. It is not appropriate for individuals who rely upon wheelchairs or other mobility aids. Agility and balance are suggested for the hiking tour to the Dragon Spine Terraces.
Dragon Spine Terraces
This journey includes an exclusive hiking tour to the Dragon Spine Terraces in the Guilin and Longsheng area. It's not like climbing a mountain, but it's not just a simple hike either.
If you like, you may skip this hiking tour, and enjoy a relaxing day exploring Guilin on your own. The Sheraton Guilin is ideally located along the Li River, and this hotel features an outdoor swimming pool and free internet access. Some down time on your own at this halfway point of your trip is usually greatly appreciated.
Use your free time to take a leisure walk along the Li River, admiring one of China's most renowned areas of natural beauty. Enjoy the sweet fragrance of the Osmanthus trees while being captivated by the cultural life as it gently surrounds you; fishing on the Li River, vendors setting up exotic foods, people bicycling on their way to work and so much more. This is an excellent opportunity for you to have a free day of doing nothing but enjoying everything around you and can be a very relaxing and satisfying experience. Don't worry about lunch as we will provide you with lunch credit so that you can eat whatever you'd like on this free day.
