Day 2Yangshuo

A cruise along the Li River from Guilin to Yangshuo is the highlight of a Guilin tour. While everybody else takes the normal large cruise boat, we believe making the trip in your own speed boat offers a unique experience. The cruise takes 4 hours from downtown Guilin to Yangshuo and includes photo stops during the trip. There's something interesting to see at almost every bend, besides the stunning scenery on the river. Between spectacular limestone peaks you'll see graceful bamboo groves, or sometimes can see the cormorant and water buffalo if you are lucky. In winter the cruise takes longer because the water level is lower. Boats depart from various wharves, according to the height of the river at different times of the year.You may even have to stop at Xinping because the water level will not allow the boat to reach Yangshuo. If this happens, we'll arrange vehicle to take you to Yangshuo. Tips: 1.The speedboat permits to stop in a wide portion of Li River for photography. 2.For the security reason, the speedboat tour is not available in the flood season.
