Situated in Guilin City of Guangxi Zhuang People’s Autonomous Region, Li River is famous for its amazingly spectacular and unique Karst landscape. Brimmed with crystal-clear waters twists and turns between the beautiful mountains, the 160 kilometers long Li River is a highlight of sightseeing tour in Guilin while the 83 kilometers long waterway from Guilin to Yangshuo is the masterpiece of the nature.
Meet your guide at your hotel lobby (centrally located) around 7:30am and start your adventure. It is about the cruise on the beautiful Li River and old Yangshuo West Street. It’s an enjoyable journey for both your eyes and souls.
When the river flows through Guilin city, it not only cuts out the ordered and special riverway but also forms skin texture of this city, which endows Guilin with its unique characteristic: soft, clean, bright and active. Taking the cruise on the Li River, you will admire the picturesque scenery of this land with a harmonious combination of the green hills, rivers, lakes and fields. But its beauty is not like a still painting, it’s alive when vivid – brisk bamboo rafts leaving wrinkles on the water and cormorants hovering under the working fishermen…
Our guide will uncover the hidden history and culture behind the natural screen before you during your cruise. You will learn from the local expert about how the city formed and developed and how local people manage their life along the famous Li River.
