Chasing Ancient Reflections

April 17 - 29, 2019

From the anchored bamboo poles set in the South China Sea, the magical karst mountains of Guilin and through the 1000 year old human made terraforms and more, you'll ask yourself ... why haven't I heard of these places before?

This sojourn was specifically designed and chosen to increase your chances of being in areas where tide tables and planting season are primed to capturing those 'hero' shots you've wished were yours. Why? Well, because who doesn't love the calm waters of the sea, ancient traditions and places that are usually elusive to the common traveler?! This is not the run-of-the-mill touristy trip to China. We go where the locals go. And, even where they don't! All the while traveling in comfort and style.

We'll be on a quest to capturing idyllic sunrises and sunsets in some of the most awe-inspiring places you'll ever witnessed. On your quest, you'll also be introduced to ancient traditions only read & seen in magazines which, incidentally, are fast becoming a faded memory in the world. These ancient traditions include ways of life, livelihood and local cuisines that have been passed down for centuries will be had, if you just slow down and allow yourself to experience something different.
