Plants on the karst mountains along the Li River in October are usually dotted with more golden points. The Li River cruise in October is available for every day.
The water level in the Li River in October is not as high as that in July. But there is no problem for the cruise boats to run on the river. As it comes into autumn in October in Guilin, the colorful views along the river may offer you a deeper feeling that you were just cruising in the classical Chinese paintings. Maple leaves on the karst hills start to turn into light yellow in October. Several types of wild flowers are in blossom as well. The bamboo forests witnessing the river for tens of years also begin to put on a light-yellow cover.
The 3-star with the 4-star boat is on a daily operation from Guilin to Yangshuo. If you are on a budget tour, the 3-star boat is the best option as the pricing of the cruise ticket is the lowest. If you’d like to enjoy the cruise in a more comfortable environment, you could choose the 4-star boat with the Chinese buffet lunch on the boat, including several fried Chinese dishes, drinks and fruits. If you are looking to get the best cruise experience on the boat, the luxury Li River boat is the only option. It features the largest seats and the richest Chinese buffet lunch onboard.
However, as at 28th March 2021, there is just one luxury cruise boat on the river and it is scheduled but not on a daily operation. If you want to get the latest schedule, please visit https://www.lirivercruises.com/ Usually, the schedule is made 1 month ahead of time at earliest.
