Li River trip is one of the most popular trips among visitors to Guilin. The Li River is endowed with karst hills, and caves around. In addition, there are tens of old villages along the Li River. Let’s take a look at the Li River trips we can do along or around the Li River.
As the Li River runs from Guilin to Yangshuo for 83 kilometers, the Li River cruise trip is a good choice to admire the karst scenery along the river on the big boat. 3 types of cruise boats will take you to Yangshuo from Guilin along the Li River. The 3 Star Li River Cruise and the 4 Star Li River Cruise boats offers the Li River cruise trip every day from Guilin to Yangshuo while the 4.5 Star Boat just runs based on a schedule.
The 3 x cruise boats run for 3.5 – 4 x hours on the river. If you would like to enjoy a quieter cruise environment, the 4.5 Star Li River Cruise Boat is ideal for you as it offers the fewest seats and the seats on the boat is the largest plus the Chinese buffet lunch is the richer compared to that on the 4 Star Li River Cruise Boat. The 3-star boat just offers a simple Chinese packaged lunch on-board. The Li River Cruise trip will let you appreciate Nine-horse Fresco Hill, Reflection of Yellow Cloth Shoal, Pen Peak, Glove Mountain, Wave Stone Legend, Carp on the Wall and many other typical karst hills.
