    The guide picks you up from your hotel in Guilin at about 8:00a.m, then drive you to the Zhujiang Pier. The Li River cruise spends about four hours and the exact arrival time in Yangshuo depends on the flow velocity.

    Along the river, you can enjoy a cruise on the meandering blue waters of Li River and view the limestone rock formations along the banks. Some famous scenic spots include Mural Hill of Nine Horses and Yellow Cloth Shoal. All of these take you into a picturesque wonderland.

    Moreover, you can see locals daily life on the river. The water buffaloes squelched up and down the paddy fields, pulling the plough. Fishermen and their fishing birds glide on narrow bamboo rafts. In summer, women are washing at the river banks and naked boys swimming or playing in the river.

    After a Chinese lunch on board, you will arrive at Yangshuo. Yangshuo is charming small town that surrounded by Green Lotus Peak, Schoolboy Hill and Snow Lion Ridge. The guide usually recommends you take part in some countryside tour programs at your own expense, such as bamboo rafting on Yulong River, cormorant fishing show, village tours and so on.

    At the end of the trip, you can take our tour bus back to Guilin or stay in Yangshuo for further visit.

    NOTE: Your local guide will contact your hotel to confirm you the specific pick-up time for next day tour the night before. Please offer the correct hotel info and make sure there is somebody to answer the phone.
