4.5 Star Li River Cruise Schedule

Or choose from other reserved seating types…


​The Luxury Li River Cruise (4.5 Star Boat) boats are the best Li River Cruise boats that travel downstream. However, they only operate on a set schedule as well as with charter cruise options so please check the corresponding date as these boats don’t depart daily. ​The interior of the boat facilities and overall cleanliness are at an excellent level, with larger, comfortable seats as well as clean bathrooms.

​The number of person’s on-board is approximately half the Superior Cruise and there is very minimal microphone usage on-board (compared to the 3-star Boat option). This option is a much more comfortable and enjoyable experience compared to the Superior Boats but it’s also more expensive. ​These boats depart in the morning from Guilin Pier to Yangshuo Pier.
