Li River Cruise Duration

Li River Cruise Duration

How long does the Li River Cruise go for?

Generally speaking, the Li River Cruise duration is approximately 4 x hours. However, if the water levels are higher and the waterflow faster, the duration can be shorter – between 3 to 3.5 x hours. Moreover, when the Li River water levels are lower, it can take 4 or more hours to travel by boat from Guilin to Yangshuo.
During the monsoonal months of April, May and June – the Li River Cruise can take between 3 – 3.5 x hours as the water levels are generally higher with lots of rain in Guilin. However, during the winter months of December, January and February it can take up to 4.5 – 5 x hours as during this time of year the Li River water levels are usually lower.
For the Yangshuo to Guilin Li River Cruise, the cruise also takes on average 4 x hours. The 4 Star Li River Cruise departs from Xingping Pier and arrives into Guilin Zhujiang Pier whilst the 3 Star Li River Cruise departs from Yangshuo Pier and arrives into Yangdi Pier. Please note, Yangdi Pier is located approximately half-way between Guilin and Yangshuo so we generally recommend to book the 4 Star Yangshuo to Guilin Li River Cruise instead.

The Li River is acclaimed as the most beautiful river in Guilin. Both of the sides of the river are endowed with amazing Karst landscape. No matter what the weather is like, the views along the river are stunning as well, presenting different charms for passengers on the Li River Cruise.
