It is a little hotter in July than in June in Guilin. Though, the Li River cruise is more popular in July than in June as July is during the summer holiday in China and students and teachers are on vacation. Parents usually travel with their children in July and August to broaden the horizon of the children.
Usually, the 3-star, 4-star and the luxury Li River cruise in July runs every day to meet the need of the tourists. Generally speaking, there is Chinese as well as English interpretation for the highlight spots along the Li River on the boat, such as Nine-horse Fresco Hill, Carp on the Wall, Reflection of Yellow Cloth Shoal, etc. Sometimes, if there are no or just a few foreign passengers on the boat, the tour guide company may not arrange an English-speaking tour guide on the boat.
If you would like to enjoy the largest seat and the richest Chinese buffet lunch on the Li River, the luxury Li River cruise boat with the fewest seats will offer you these. But the pricing of the seat is also the highest. If you also want to enjoy a relatively comfortable cruise boat but with cheaper pricing of the cruise ticket, you could take the 4-star Li Rive cruise boat. The 3-star boat has the most seats but the pricing of the cruise ticket is the cheapest. You could take any type of the cruise boats based on your preference.
