China Photo Tours

Guilin, Yangshuo, Huangshan, Zhangjiajie and Xiapu
Home China Photo Tours

Our China photo tours now cover four main destinations: Guilin (Yangshuo & Longji), Huangshan (Yellow Mountains & Hongcun village), Zhangjiajie and Xiapu.

Sunrise over karst mountains, cormorant fishermen floating through mist on the Li River, long-haired minority women walking in rice terraces, unpredictable seas of cloud around the Yellow Mountains, breathtaking Avatar mountains, busy farmers walking fast on mudflats, and more. All these create a photo album of China, and that's what we’ll do.

" We usually travel independently without a tour guide, but know we never would have been able to do half of the sights we saw with Mercier on our own." — Bernadette Wensley

Other China Photo Tour Options

In addition to the above photography destinations, the following places are well worth visiting: Guizhou, Yunnan, and Tibet.

Guizhou is an awesome place for observing minority villages, authentic minority people, and their cultures. Go there at the right time to experience their unique festivals and celebrations. Photograph minority people with their immaculate festive clothing and silver headwear.

Yunnan is well known for its beautiful landscapes and natural wonders. The fascinating scenery around Lijiang, Shangrila and the Jade Dragon Snow Mountains is good for landscape photography and hiking. Yuanyang rice terraces and Dongchuan Red Land are perfect seasonal photography locations.

Tibet is famous for its highland scenery and unique Tibetan culture and monasteries.

We don’t currently run China photo tours to these destinations because of lack of English-speaking photography guides. We are, however, working on it. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram or subscribe to our newsletter below for the latest information.
