I had the same observation as another reviewer: the boat tour reminded me of what an Epcot ride might be like if it was longer, outside and real, The entire Guilin river and lake network as the scenery. I would live to take the ride again. we took the night tour, and I was amazed by the entertainment along the... More

This cruise is beyond expectation . Worth every minute spent on cruise . If visiting Guilin and not taking night cruise then better leave Guilin from your itinerary.

I thought this was going to be one of those really boring cultural tours that forces local tourists to view a bunch of artificial entertainment. But it turned out to be loads of fun in an almost traditionally Chinese 'It's a Small World After All' execution. It all started in a small boat with about 30 people. The boat had... More

We took the cruise on a dark and rainy night and were pleasantly surprised and the beautiful lights, the smooth waters, and the entertainment (Chinese opera, band and drama performances) along the way. We especially enjoyed going from river to lake through locks and watching as our boat rose to meet the new water level.

A boat trip along the rivers and lakes of Guilin a wonderful way to spend an evening. The bridges, buildings and pagodas are beautifully illuminated. Every now and then as the boats pass a certain location there are singers and dancers along the shoreline providing entertainment to those on board. My favorite part was when fishermen came alongside and demonstrated... More

The two hour "2 rivers and 4 lakes cruise" is especially beautiful at night when the bridges and structures along the river banks are colorfully lighted. There are two night cruises. Boarding can be at the Li River near Jiefang Bridge or at the Tao Hua River near the junction of Binjiang Road and Wen Ming Road. A picture is... More

We had planned a lot in Guilin but had not heard about the 4 Lakes Tour (Banyan Lake is the main one). Our tour guide suggested it and we were so glad that we listened to her. We walked from the Sheraton where we stayed and soon got on the boat. As soon as we knew they were pushing off,... More

The next time you are in Gulin and you have already seen the "walk street" and the waterfalls hotel you must take the evening boat ride. It takes you from lake to lake around the city moving through locks that raise and lower the boats. It takes you to shoreline entertainment that is both interesting and romantic. Although you can...
