China is known for its megacities, sprawling urban areas dotted with high-rises where tens of millions of people live and work. But there is much to discover in its hinterland, home to different ethnic groups with their unique cultures and traditions.

Join us on this guided journey as we set out to explore the Chinese countryside during this 18-day group tour. Although the trip starts in Hong Kong, you soon leave the city behind for Yangshuo, a picturesque region immortalised in numerous Chinese paintings. While in Yangshuo, you will get the chance to hike through the famous rice terraces of Longji and spend the night in Dazhai village, inhabited by members of the Yao ethnic group.

Discover the lifestyle of the Dong people in Chengyang and visit Zhaoxing, a Dong town, before taking a private bus to Kaili, the centre of the Miao ethnic group. From Kaili, you will travel to Anshun, famous for the Huangguoshu Waterfall, the largest waterfall in China.

Continue your journey to Lijiang, home to the Naxi people, descendants of Tibetan nomads. A guided tour of Xizhou, famous for its Bai architecture, awaits you next. The final destination of this trip is Kunming, where this trip comes to an end.
