1. Well, in general, you can only take the cruise from GL to Yangshuo and go back by taking the coach because the water route from Yangshuo to GL is backset.

2. Thus, start the cruise from GL Zhujiang Wharf. And take the cruise boat to tour around. This route covers many popular attractions, such as Elephant Trunk Hill, Chuanshan Park, Forest of Odd Shaped Peaks, Daxu Ancient Town , Ox Gorge, Rooster Fighting Hill and Pagoda Hill. The sightseeing time is 4 to 5 hours. After touring around, you can take a bus to go back to GL. from Yangshuo North Bus Station. It takes around 1.5 hours on the way.

3. The fare would be different because of the season changes. Generally speaking, the cruise on the boat will spend CNY 400 to 500 for the single trip.

4. About the accommodation, it's suggested to stay at a hotel nearby the bund of the Li River. As I know, there are several nice and buget hotel that provide clean environment and warm service. And you can also see the good view of the river. Wangjianglou Hotel is a good choice. The price is CNY 200 to 250 per night in usual time. It's located at No.15, Binjiang Road. Hope you like. :)

The best time is from April to October. But you are advised to avoid holidays like May Day holiday (from May 1st to 3rd), and National Day Holiday (from October 1st to 7th) when there will be many tourists.

Do not worry, in GL General Bus Station, there are buses available to Yangshuo till 21:00. The bus fare is CNY22. After arrival at the north railway station, you can take the bus No. 100 to the general bus station directly.

From Yangshuo, there is no direct cruise back to GL. Only bamboo raft between Yangdi and Xingping is available. That is only a part of the river. Meanwhile, from Yangshuo North Railway Station, there are also buses back to GL.
