What to expect
After early pickup from your downtown Guilin hotel, settle into your comfortable, air-conditioned bus and travel to the River Li departure pier where your sightseeing boat awaits. The Li flows 52 miles (83 kilometers) from Guilin to Yangshuo and is framed by some of China’s most beautiful countryside — landscapes of soaring karsts (limestone pinnacles), buffalo pastures, bamboo woods, and emerald rice fields that have been celebrated by Chinese watercolor painters through the centuries. At the pier, board your comfortable boat for your cruise. Relax on the open-air deck or in the cushioned comfort of the main cabin, and keep your camera ready along the way. Gaze at the riverbanks as you set sail, admiring the other-worldly landscapes that are every photographer’s dream. Almost every bend in the river reveals an enchanting new scene of forested karsts, farmers tending rice paddies, and lumbering buffalo pulling carts or cooling off in the waters. With luck, you may also see some of the Li’s famous cormorant fishing rafts, with fishermen using the birds to catch fish. During your cruise, sit down to a delicious Chinese buffet lunch. Feast on local staples, including dishes of fresh fish from the river, and absorb the scenery as you relax and eat. After about four hours on the water, arrive at the historical town of Yangshuo, one of the prettiest spots in China’s Guangxi province and surrounded by scenic karsts. Disembark and enjoy free time to explore Yangshuo’s colorful West Street and old quarter. Browse the street stalls peddling souvenirs and handicrafts, and perhaps absorb the karst views from a rooftop bar or café. Then, relax on a bus ride back to Guilin, passing rustic farms and countryside away from the river before finishing your tour with a drop-off at your downtown hotel.
