Li River Cruise Tickets Booking FAQs

How do I get my Li River cruise tickets?

For 3-star cruise, we will deliver the tickets to your hotel in Guilin.
For 4-star cruise, you will collect the paper ticket from the ticket center at the dock.

When does the cruise set off? How long is the journey?

The cruise begins at 08:30 - 09:30. We will inform you of the accurate time after issuing the ticket. The whole cruise journey takes about 4 hours.

Where is the dock for embarkation?

4-star Cruise Ship: Zhujiang Wharf at Lingchuan County, 32 km (20 mi) from downtown Guilin
3-star Cruise Ship: Mopanshan Wharf at the end of Guimo Road, Lingchuan County, 30 km (18.6 mi) from downtown Guilin

Do you have any advice for lunch if I travel with a kid?

Kids between 1.1m and 1.5m (3.6 - 4.9ft) need to buy a kids’ Li River cruise ticket with a lunch included. Kids below 1.1m can board the ship for free, but they need to pay CNY 40 or so on ship for lunch. Food onboard is simple and may not meet your requirements. Please be prepared.

If I use transfer service, when will the tour guide contact me to make an appointment?

Our guide will contact you one day in advance to confirm the time for picking you up. The next day, our guide will accompany you to the dock and help you to embark. After that, the guide and driver will leave and you can have a free time onboard.

What are the differences between 3-star and 4-star cruise ships?

Overall, 4-star cruise ships are more luxurious with better facilities. You can enjoy a buffet on 4-star cruise ships for lunch but only box lunch on 3-star cruise ships. The cruise routes are exactly the same.

According to some Internet information, the local government has started to regulate this area and many if not all big tour group agencies now avoid the area. Rafts now only leave the docks at Yangdi and Xingping between 07:30-09:00 in the morning, without large boats on the river, and 13:00-15:00 in the afternoon, when the tour boats return empty to Guilin. We don't know the situation in 2020.
