GL01-01:One Day Li River Cruise Tour


Our clients on Li River Cruise


The scenic spots along Li River are considered as the highlights in Guilin, and it would be a pity for not visiting there if you have ever been there, and the best relaxing way is to take a cruise. Your private excursion today begins after our guide picks you up from your hotel lobby in the morning. And then we will drive you to Zhujiang dock to board one of the best cruises on the Li River. Our guide will escort you and give you introductions on the different sites along the way. Once you were there, you could know what it means by "picturesque"! The cruise will arrive at Yangshuo after about four hours' sailing. Then a trip to the local villages will be arranged for you to experience deeper rural scenery. After that, you will be transferred back to Guilin.

Tips: The lunch served on the cruise today is simple Chinese lunch box. It cannot be up to your taste and also fails to meet the serving standard of TravelChinaGuide, so we kindly suggest you have a hearty breakfast at the hotel this morning.
