Today, we will take a cruise down Li River to Yangshuo, which will be sure to leave a lasting impression on you.

During the cruise, you will appreciate a typical landscape painting consisting of peculiar peaks, clear water, green fields as well as carefree buffalos.

After arriving in Yangshuo, you will be accompanied to check in at the hotel first and then to the countryside of Yangshuo to explore the picturesque rural scenery.

I am traveling to Guilin during the first and second week of June.
I am planning on doing many outdoor activities like hiking, biking etc. Will I not be able to do this because of the rain? Should I expect rain every day I’m there? :(

I am planning to visit Longji Rice Terrace around the 22nd of December 2018
And I was wondering if there would be snow or if its not recommended to go at all during this period?

Generally speaking, there is snow in the end of December and beginning of January. However, it’s hard to say whether it will snow this December. You may pay attention to the weather forecast. Anyway, the best time to visit the rice terrace is June to October.

Your time is ok. No worry! You can take the cruise about 09:30 - 10:00 and it takes 4-5h to Yangshuo. Then you can have a look at the Western Street. At Yangshuo Bus Station, there are direct buses to Guilin Airport (CNY50, 90min), so you don't need to go back. You can catch the bus leaving 16:00.
