Breakfast & lunch
Meet your tour guide at hotel lobby at the appointed time in the morning(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 4~5 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. You may see fishermen gliding along on their narrow bamboo rafts, and if you're very lucky you might see one of the famous fishing cormorants.
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).

It was built from 219 to 214 BC, to transport supplies to the armies of the First Qin emperor, and is considered to be one of the three great feats of Chinese engineering. The 34km canal links Xiang River and Li River, connecting two of China's major waterways. It made the list of the Heritage Irrigation Structures in 2018.

Breakfast & lunch
Have a city tour to the Elephant Trunk Hill. Located between the Li River and the Peach Blossom River, the whole hill looks like a giant elephant with a long trunk. It is the symbol of Guilin city. Then visit Reed Flute Cave, which is Guilin's largest and most impressive cave. Its name is explained by the fact that reeds for making flutes and pipes have been grown in this region since ancient times. This drip-stone cave is 790 feet deep, and a visitor will walk for some 550 yards through a zigzagging sea of stalactites and stalagmites in dazzling colors.
After the tour, you will be transferred to the airport for your flight to your next destination.
