本次旅修去哪里?

The Detian Waterfall (德天瀑布 [Détiān Pùbù]; Virtuous Heaven Waterfall) was said to be one of the largest transnational waterfalls in the world.The waterfall is shared by both China and Vietnam. Surrounded by picturesque karst peaks, Phang-nga Bay (Thailand), and Halong Bay (Vietnam), this is definitely one of the more scenic waterfalls!

Tongling Grand Canyon

The name of this gorge means ‘Connected to the Spirit World’. You will descend narrow flights of stairs down to a large cavern, with flickering bulbs and the roar of an underground river. Emerging past the cave, you venture through a thick tropical forest into a series of wild gorges, and past vaulted cliffs with hanging stalactites and dramatic waterfalls that end in crystal pools framed by boulders. 

Mingshi village

Mingshi Scenic Area (明仕田园风景区) is crowned as the “Small ‪Guilin‬” and a photographer’s heaven. ‬You’ve probably not heard of Mingshi Tian Yuan before, but if you’re looking for somewhere unspoilt and unoccupied by tourists crowds, Mingshi’s intoxicating rural countryside and surreal mountainous region shaped by Karst landscaphave a lot to offer. Enjoy the views of meandering rivers, limestone hills, cliffs and caves, Zhuang minority villages with rice paddies, local humble dwellings, waterwheels…
