Hello Allan,

The Li River Cruise was so exciting. The Li An Lodge was excellent, and its rooms were so individual and elegant-looking. From the room my family and I enjoyed a spectacular view of the minority celebrating their harvest with torches all over the mountain. Plus, I love the Ancient Zhuang Village so much. It was a fairyland every inch. We would sure come next spring to see the glossy ponding rice terraces.

Million thanks.

Dear Nancy,

We’re just fresh from the tour in Guilin. It was great, we must say.

The tour guide of the Longsheng section, Helen Liao, surely helped a lot all through our tour. Her fab remark on the rice terraces and the minority custom made the tour far more than simply hiking and sightseeing. We appreciated her service so much.

One more thing: the Impression Liu Sanjie show in Yangshuo was so amazing. We had fun every minute of it. We will not forget the sights and sounds.

Thank you for being so considerate with our travel all the way too.

Customer: Mr. McField
