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. There are some optional activities available, such as cycling, bamboo rafting, watch an impression show and etc. Have a short exploration of the old town before being transferred back to your hotel in Guilin (around 18:00).
Tips: We arrange 3-star cruise ship for this tour, which is popular and cost effective. If you look forward to a better experience with more spacious room, well-furnished cabin and a buffet lunch, we recommend you to upgrade to 4-star cruise ship. Just tick the optional activity when you make the booking.
Be met at 8:30 at your hotel and transferred to Longsheng County at about 11:00. Have lunch at a local restaurant in the Village. Located in Longsheng County, Longji Terraced Field is built into the hillsides and look like great chains or ribbons as they wind from the foot to the top of the hill. This ingenious construction makes best use of the thin arable land and water resources in the mountainous area. Some parts of the fields were first built in the Yuan Dynasty and completed in the Qing Dynasty by the Zhuang people.
Among the terraced fields there stands two villages - Ancient Zhuang Village and Ping'an Village. Hike among the terraced fields for about 3 hours. You will see the two most famous scenic spots- "Seven Stars around the Moon" and "Nine Dragons & Five Tigers". Also have a chance to see the local Yao Minority Women's Long Hair Show (optional with extra charge) before being transferred back to your hotel in Guilin at about 18:00.
