Meet your tour guide at hotel lobby at the appointed time in the morning. Your tour guide will call you or leave a message the night before your tour to confirm pick-up time (usually around 8:00 am).
It takes about 1 hour to drive to Li River pier (Mopanshan pier) from downtown. The boarding time is scheduled at 9:30 am, and the whole journey takes about 4 hours. Embark and enjoy your Li River cruise to Yangshuo.
Li River is the highlight of Guilin tour, and whoever come to this city will be impressed by its natural beauty. The 54-kilometer waterway on the twisty Li River from Zhujiang to Yangshuo covers hundreds and thousands of grotesque peaks. The landscape is decorated with rolling hills, steep cliffs, fantastic caves, leisurely boats and is lined with bamboo. The water reflect the mountain and the sky, forming a picturesque scenery. Wonderful appreciation of a stirring "Movement of Mother Nature" !
A Chinese lunch box is offered on board by the cruise company.
Disembark at Yangshuo (Longtoushan pier) in the afternoon (1:30-2:00pm). Yangshuo, an ancient town with a history of over 1400 years, is the most beautiful town along the Li River. At the village of Gaotian to the south of Yangshuo, the fascinating pastoral scenery comes in sight. Yangshuo West Street is a place where you will find a lot of unique shops selling traditional handcrafts, hand-made scarfs, snacks of local flavor etc. It is quite fun to explore these small shops even if you don’t buy anything. Have a short exploration of the old town before being transferred back to your hotel in Guilin (around 18:00).
You can also take an optional Bamboo Rafting on Yulong River to enjoy the beautiful scenery along the river.
Cycling around the countryside is also quite fun. Ask the tour guide to rent a bicycle for you.
