The 4 Star Li River Cruise boat on the Li River is a better option. There are 3 x types of seats on the boat – the Lower Deck Seating, the Upper Deck Seating and the VIP Seating. Usually, there are around 80 x seats in total on the boat. The lunch on the boat is Chinese buffet lunch with several drinks, fruits in season and fried Chinese food.
The 4.5 Star Li River Cruise boat runs on schedule while the 3 Star and the 4 Star boats run daily. The types of seats on the 4.5 Star boat are the same as those on the 4-star boat but the seats on the 4.5 Star boat are larger. The Chinese buffet lunch on the 4.5 Star boat is much richer than that on the 4 Star boat. Thus, the pricing of the seat on the 4.5 Star boat is a little higher than that on the 4 Star boat.
All the Li River cruise tour boats departs before 10:00 am at Guilin Pier. All ages are permitted to take the big cruise boats
