Ultramodern and resolutely traditional, China is a land with one foot in the present and the other striding into the future. This eight-day adventure connects them both, beginning with Shanghai’s sleek skyscrapered skyline and a train to the limestone karsts of Guilin. Next, you’ll strap on your boots and hike into the countryside around Longji to wander the picturesque rice paddies. (Depending on the season, you may even get to help out with the harvest.) Finally, you’ll return to modern times with a two-day stint in always-on Hong Kong. Nature and modernity, in perfect balance.
