In June, it could be said that it rains the most compared to any other month in Guilin. Therefore, the water level in the Li River is high enough for several days in this month. If the water level breaches a set level, the Li River cruise in June will be canceled by the local marine bureau out of safety concerns.
It is a little hot in June in Guilin. But all the Li River cruise boats are air-conditioned. Thus, passengers can be able to admire the karst landscape in a comfortable environment.
There is just a simple Chinese packaged lunch on the daily 3-star Li River cruise boat which offers the most seats compared to the 4 star and the luxury Li River cruise boats. The 3 star boat is the most popular among Chinese passengers. Some persons think the packaged lunch is not delicious.
If you want to have a larger seat and a better lunch, you could take the 4-star Li River cruise boat which is also a daily operation. There are fewer seats and a Chinese buffet lunch with some drinks, and fruits on the 4-star boat. If you like vegetarian food better, it is suggested that you bring your own food with you on the boat.
As at 28th March 2021, only one luxury Li River cruise boat runs on a schedule on the river. It is the best cruise boat with the largest seat and the richest Chinese buffet lunch on the Li River. Thus, if you want to enjoy the luxury cruise, it is safer to book the ticket 1 month at least in advance to secure the seat in June.
