AT07 – Mystical Valleys

One week from £1975pp – based on 2 sharing, including flights and B&B accommodation at a featured hotel

What it feels like to be there…

As gentle mists shroud unfathomably steep, verdant valleys, your eyes will widen as you struggle to take in the beauty of the view. But this is just the backdrop to Yuzi Paradise, a billion dollar, 1,320-acre park dedicated to the creation of art. A stay here is an adventure that will inspire the artist in you.

What to do there…

Guilin is packed with activities and perfect for 7 to 10 days:

  • Major: Art-classes, Cycling, Nature-walks, Cave-treks, Yoga, Meditation, Tai-chi, Spa/Massage.
  • Other: Boat-trips, Fishing, Hiking, Kid-friendly, Swimming.

Where to stay…

The 5* Hotel of Modern Art (HOMA) is at the heart of Yuzi Paradise. It pairs each group of guests with a VIP host whose job is to anticipate your every need and facilitate your every whim. Stay in luxurious and, of course, artistically designed rooms, and let your host arrange the perfect blend of action, art and indulgence.

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: Guilin airport is 1.5h from Hong Kong (HK) or 2.5h from Shanghai. Guilin to Lijiang flights change in Kunming or Chongqing (2h flying + connection). Lijiang to HK or Shanghai flights connect similarly and take at least 5h.
  • Weather: Guilin is hot Jun-Sep and wet Apr-Jul, otherwise mild and generally dry. Lijiang is cold Nov-Feb and wet Jun-Sep, otherwise mild and generally dry.
  • Warning: Lijiang is special, but getting there takes a day of internal travel. Consider HK for ‘extensions’ <4 days.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

Trips to China are sometimes hard work, but always very rewarding. HOMA offers something different, though; a trip where the biggest challenge is choosing between activities, classes and spa treatments. Otherwise, it is pure pleasure in a scenic location.
