Crystal-clear river water, verdant peaks, pristine villages…renting a bike to cycle around is quite an “in” activity for all kinds of trips to Guilin for its payoff of getting fully immersed in the beautiful surroundings. There are quite some classic and scenic cycling routes at choice:
Yangshuo Town - Chaolong Village - Yulong Bridge - Yangshuo Town
This is a short-term bike tour along the Yulong River, starting from Yangshuo County to Chaolong Village, then turning northwest along the river to the Yulong Bridge and getting back to Yangshuo. Quite moderate and combining countryside views and river beauty, this route shows you the best part of Yulong River – a cute, a narrower yet equally beautiful tributary of Li River. Bamboo rafting can be fitted in part of the route, so quite flexible.
Yangshuo Town - Big Banyan - the Moon Hill - The Moon Hill Village - Jianshan Temple - Yan Village - Tian Jia River - Yangshuo Town
The route starts from Yangshuo and passes several famous attractions and pristine villages providing very impressive sights while you pedal along. Including high road and countryside paths, the route is around 20km and not so demanding.
If you are into something more strenuous, try the following ones:
Guilin - Daxu Town - Xiong Village - Guilin
Cycle around Guilin up to 65 km away from the city, passing by Daxu Town, a land of strawberries, and Xiong Village, where the ancient architecture is well preserved, then back to Guilin.
Guilin - Longji Terrace Rice Field
Cycle 120 km from Guilin to Longji terraced rice fields, passing by verdant forest, elegant waterfalls, exotic Yao and Zhuang minority villages, and a grand rice terrace.
