Opposite the Waterfall hotel beside the lake. Formerly named Congee City. More rustic than slick but the food's ok and the nplace is open 'til late, which is unusual especially in this part of Guilin. It'sa useful address, I think. DW

One of the best restaurants on our trip!

To Western standards, this is a huge restaurant. According to a local, it is even open 24 hours. We were not able to verify this, because the staff doesn't really speak English. We arrived late, but it was no problem at all. We were able to choose our own seats and quickly handed over menus... read more

I find it surprising that so many reviews here on TA erroneously are of the LI RIVER CRUISE! I believe that the Li River Cruise reviews should be posted not to this RESTAURANT but to the ATTRACTION: Li River East of Guangxi Zhuang, China. I would call the attraction the "Li River Cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo". Are reviewers confusing... More

The unusual beauty of the landscape was mesmerizing. The Yangtze River is so masculine and rugged but this river is the opposite.

The views from the boats cruising down the Li river are amazing. Very much like Ha long bay in Vietnam ( not far in distance away). Half the top level on the boat we were on was "bought" by a group of wealthy Chinese who had the crew bring there tables and chairs on deck - which caused all sorts... More

The beauty of the river and the insight to the fishing villages were remarkable. We loved the views of the mountains.

This is a great way to see the countryside, mountains, and river. The scenery is absolutely stunning and you will even get to see the inspiration for the 20RMB note. The lunch buffet is lacking so pack it on at breakfast. They will offer you drinks, souvenirs, etc. but will not pressure you into buying anything. It’s pretty crowded with... More

Easy way to get from Gwaylin to Yansho. The food was a little so so, but amazing they cook so many different dishes and provided a buffett with an open kitchen on the back of the boat.

This was my second trip down the Li river and although it was much busier than 20 years ago I enjoyed it very much, the show of impressions at the end of the boat trip is something to behold

We also went hiking but to get the best perspective of the limestone mountains and the water, there is nothing like being on the cruise. The lunch food was okay. I would DEFINITELY add this to your plan if you come to Guilin.
