Boat Trips and Cruises on the Li River
Guilin to Yangshuo Cruise
Duration: 5-6 hours
Stretching all the way from Guilin, Li River cruises on large tour boats are often the most awe inspiring highlight on many a visitor's itinerary. The downside is that the scenery is that dozens of tour boats operate on the river causing a large amount of traffic and noise. Nevertheless, it is still a great alternative to travel to Yangshuo from Guilin. The price for the cruise is relatively high but includes lunch and you can take your luggage onboard.
Xingping to Yangdi and back
Duration: 2.5 hours
This particular stretch of river is known as the Golden Waterways. Take a local bus from Yangshuo to Xingping or we can help you to arrange a taxi from hotel to Xingping and walk to the docks of the town.The trip takes over an hour one way and arguably is the best stretch of the Li River in terms of scenery with huge karst peaks soaring from the shores of the Li River, sub tropical jungle shading the banks and long stretched pebble beaches.
