Return Details

Your hotel in central Guilin
After morning pickup from your central Guilin hotel, travel to the Zhujiang Pier.

Board your boat, and settle in the enclosed cabin or on the outdoor deck for your approximately 4-hour River Li cruise. The duration will depend on weather and river levels.

Then, admire the magical landscapes as you cruise the winding waters, following a 34-mile (54-kilometer) route to Yangshuo. Gaze at karst pinnacles, bamboo groves, emerald pastures, and steep cliffs, all of them echoing traditional Chinese landscapes.

Plus, glimpse daily life, observing buffalo grazing, farmers tending their crops, and perhaps even cormorant fishing rafts. Savor a simple onboard Chinese lunch — it’s recommended you have a large breakfast before your trip — and, in the early afternoon, disembark at Yangshuo, a historical town surrounded by karsts.

Enjoy about three hours to explore Yangshuo independently, perhaps visiting the market and strolling along West Street, whose history extends back 1,400 years. Admire the quaint architecture, and enjoy the craft, calligraphy, art, and souvenir shops, and restaurants and cafes.

Afterward, cruise back to Guilin, where your trip finishes with a hotel drop-off. Alternatively, inform your guide beforehand if you want to stay in Yangshuo, and get their directions to your accommodation.
