This trip has a mix of adventure and history. From impressive rock formations, to one of China’s ancient villages, this trip will surely captivate you. These two locations are still off-the-beaten path and we cannot wait to show you what gems they are!
Bajiaozhai, also known as Yuntai Mountain, is located between Guangxi and Hunan Province. The main peak is 818 meters above sea level. It is named for its eight warping angles, and is composed of odd peaks and stone columns of various shapes. It is rare in the world for its richness and taste, and is praised by experts as “Soul of Danxia, National Treasure”.
Daxu Ancient Town was initially founded during the early Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127 AD), which means it has a history of over one thousand years. There were eight broad commercial streets, more than ten docks, and merchants came together in crowds. It was the leader among the four best known ancient towns in Guangxi in terms of its scale. Now all that prosperity has gone, leaving the town standing quietly by Li River.
