Fly to Zhangjiajie and see the famous Avatar mountains, the inspiration behind the floating rocks in the movie Avatar.

Next up visit Furongzhen, a village perched on a cliff with an impressive waterfall flowing out of it. Wander the charming streets and tuck into spicy Hunanese food for lunch. From here it's on to the trading town of Fenghuang, otherwise known as 'Phoenix Ancient Town' where wooden stilt houses line the river and fishermen row for the day's catch. Your evening will be spent enjoying a meal on the riverbanks. The following day is yours to spend as you please. Take a hike up a nearby peak and enjoy views across the river, enjoy a leisurely boat ride on a traditional rowboat or shop for local embroidery and silver.

Activity and Adventure
All aboard! Take a boat from Guilin to Yangshuo along the scenic Li River, dotted with karst peaks along the winding route. Look out for some of the well-known formations, such as the Nine Horses Painted Hill. After a four-hour voyage, you'll be transferred to your hotel.

The next day hire a bike to explore the dramatic countryside. There is a range of easy-to-follow routes you can choose from. Make a day of it and combine your ride with a hike up one of the karst peaks or swim in one of the smaller rivers. If that sounds too much like hard work, go rafting in a traditional bamboo craft instead. Fill up that evening on a traditional dish of spicy beer fish.

Spend the next day at a cooking class and learn how to create traditional Guangxi flavours. In the evening watch the mesmerising show, Sanjie Liu, directed by famed director Zhang Yimou who produced the 2008 Olympics Opening Ceremony. The show itself involves 600 performers on the river with dramatic lighting and an impressive natural backdrop of twelve imposing karst peaks.

Macau
City
Ready for a dazzling 24 hours in the 'Vegas of China'? You're off to Macau! But while it might be known for its gambling and glitz, this city has a fascinating past, and you would be forgiven for thinking you had stepped into the old town of Lisbon. Tour with a local guide who will show you the city’s historical and cultural highlights.

Visit the A-Ma Temple, overlooking Barra Square and seashore, before exploring the ruins of St. Paul, which have become a symbol of the city over the years. At Senado Square, you'll see the historic heart of Macau and experience the buzzing street stalls and municipal markets in action. Your tour will conclude at the Macau Tower, where you can gaze out over to the fishing community of Coloane in the south, and further to Hong Kong’s outlying islands.

You'll finish up your trip back in Hong Kong. Spend the first evening as you like – why not go to the Ozone bar and enjoy a tipple at the highest bar in the world? Your final day has a city tour in store. Over the day you'll learn, and see, how this simple fishing village morphed into one of the world's most cosmopolitan cities. Start with a ride on the Star Ferry and see the city’s beloved Victoria Harbour, then take a ride on the world's steepest funicular railway, the Peak Tram. Enjoy the spectacular city skyline view from the top. From here it's on to the fishing village of Aberdeen, where you can see Hong Kong's famous 'floating community' and enjoy a short sampan ride. You'll finish up in the popular market town of Stanley where you can shop for a bargain.
