Sugar House Tour
Travel back in time to the 1960s as our Leisure Concierge brings to life the purpose of each unique heritage building, once making up the sugar factory complex. Imbued with the nostalgia of a bygone era, the Sugar House Tour also explains all the key steps in the artisanal sugar-making process. Equipped with a map, you can retrace the steps of the workers of this particular plant and at each location throughout the tour you will be handed exclusive “collector” postcards – a meaningful souvenir for you to take home or mail off to family and friends.

Rock Climbing Adventure
The Yangshuo region’s dramatic karst landscape encompasses a myriad of stunning landforms and features, making it a world-class hiking and climbing destination. At Alila Yangshuo, guests have the luxury of attempting the resort’s very own karst hill in its backyard, for their first rock climbing adventure. With routes to suit abilities of all levels from beginners to advanced, the climbing site offers an incredible back-to-nature experience under the wings of an expert guide.

Sugar Spinning - Handmade Sugar Treats
Alila offers an opportunity for guests to take a step back in history to a time when the building was once a sugar making factory. This truly captivating experience allows guests to try their hand at the sugar-making process where antique vessels are filled with precipitated sugar concentrate. The finished sugar creation is exquisitely wrapped and makes the perfect take-home momento.
