Yangshuo, China – a virtual balloon ride

By Rachel Lankester.

This virtual tour is a bit different to our usual offerings. This was a 2 hour balloon trip over the incredible karst formations of Yangshou in Southern China near the more famous but now terribly over-developed Guilin.

I’ve spent quite a lot of time in China over the years but never seen it from this angle. As often happens with me when travelling, health and safety concerns flew out the window.  We saw a balloon land and asked if we could go up in it! So we did. It was breathtaking. I hope you enjoy this flight over the amazing landscape of the countryside around Guilin.
