LI RIVER CRUISE OVERVIEW (Yangshuo-Xingping to Guilin)

The Deluxe Li River Cruise (4 Star Boat) is the only deluxe Li River Cruise boat operating on a daily basis . It’s commonly referred to as the ‘best boat available’ (although that status is reserved for the Luxury Li River Cruise (4.5 Star Boat). There are multiple 4-star boats that depart daily offering a mid-range option for visitors.

​The interior of the boat facilities and overall cleanliness are at a good level, with larger, comfortable seats as well as clean bathrooms. The number of person’s on-board is approximately half the Superior 3-Star Boat Cruise and there isn’t as much micophone usage on-board. This option is a much more comfortable and enjoyable experience compared to the Superior Cruise Boats but it’s also more expensive.

These boats depart in the afternoon from Yangshuo Pier (Xingping) to Guilin Pier.
