In the morning, your guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel at around 08:30, and then escort you to the Pier to take the Li River Cruise to Yangshuo. The boarding time is scheduled at 9:30am, and the whole journey takes about 4 hours. With your guide's company and explanations, you will immerse yourself in the stunning karst landscape made up of the rolling hills, verdant forests, odd caves and tranquil villages along the Li River. Around noon, a simple Chinese box lunch will be offered on board by the cruise company.

After disembarking from the cruise at around 2 pm, you will take a leisurely stroll on the famous West Street. Then you could choose to tour around the picturesque countryside of Yangshuo by vehicle or bicycle. You will also have a chance to visit a local farmer's house. There is no better ways than the family visit to know the local people and see their daily life. At the end of this Guilin Yangshuo tour, you will be transferred back to your hotel in Guilin, and the duration is about 1.5 hours.

Tour Highlights
Li River Cruise
Stretching for 83 kilometers (52 miles) from Guilin to Yangshuo, the Li River is just like an emerald belt traveling past the lush karst hills, oddly-shaped peaks and peaceful rural villages. Cruising through the most breathtaking sections at Caoping, Yangdi and Xingping, you will get a chance to sightsee the gorgeous gallery made up of essential spots, including Wangfu Rock, Crown Cave, Mural Hill and Yellow Cloth Shoal which is printed on the 20 RMB banknote. You may prepare a 20 RMB in advance and take a photo together when traveling through this area. In addition to the constantly changing karst vistas, you may also encounter the local fishermen rowing a narrow bamboo raft and casting their fishing nets in the river, and the farmers working in fields with buffaloes.

Yangshuo Countryside Tour
The essence of the Guilin's landscape could be found in Yangshuo, which is crowned as one of the most beautiful villages in China and blessed with mild and favorable climate all year round. During your private tour, you could go deeper into the rural villages and keep far away from the urban hustle and bustle. What's more, Yangshuo is also a biking paradise with plenty of village trails and paths for visitors to take in the idyllic scenery. If you are obsessed with that, we can arrange a cycling tour along the Yulong River for you to discover more hidden gems like the Moon Hill, Big Banyan Tree and Water Cave, which will add much joy to your 1 day Guilin Li River cruise tour.

It is possible to take boat from Yangshuo. You can take bamboo raft or cruise from Xingping Wharf. However, there is no cruise from Yangshuo to Guilin.

Which is more beautiful
Dazhai or Pinganzhai. How much further is one from other? Can you do both in one day?
Answers (1)
Answered by Denny | Sep. 02, 2019 02:11

As I think, both Dazhai and Pinganzhai are beautiful. The terrace fields in Dazhai has more grand sight than Pinganzhan, but in Pinganzhai, it is less challengeable to climb up the view plant than in Dazhai. The distance between Dazhai and Pinganzhai is about 20 km but it is a little tight if you do both in one day. Maybe two days is better.

About time
Me and my wive arive around 11.00 am (25 april 2019) in Guilin and leave the next day around 03.00 pm. We would love to have river tour. But all the tours start early or end to late. What can you recommend?

As I know, Li River cruise usually departs at around 09:30 in the morning and there is no afternoon cruise. Since the cruise ship usually arrives in Yangshuo at 2:00 in the afternoon, it is difficult to catch the flight. So I kindly suggest you take a trip to other famous attractions in Guilin, like Reed Flute Cave, Ronghu Lake, Shanhu Lake, East-West Alley or Elephant Trunk Hill.
