Two great options which do not have a bearing on the price or timing of this tour.
Li River Cruise: This cruise takes about four hours, arriving in Yangshuo at about 1.30 to 2.30 depending on the water levels. A simple buffet lunch is served but this does not meet our service standards, therefore we advise you to have a big breakfast at your hotel, which will see you through the inadequate buffet or to pack a lunchbox. Yangshuo has many good cafés and restaurants.
Bamboo Raft: After a drive from Guilin, a bamboo raft takes you through the most scenic section (about 1 hour) of Li River. You will have lunch in the ancient village of Xingping where you will get off the bamboo raft. Then you will be transfered to Yangshuo. (If you’re a keen photographer, you may consider customizing this trip to stay one night extra for cormorant fishing photography. )Stay overnight at Yangshuo.
Have fun cycling in the countryside of Yangshuo to see Chinese rural life. Biking alongside the paddy fields and orchards that surround the famous mountains will give you a fascinating insight into life in rural China.
Impression Sanjie Liu is a quality live outdoor performance set in real mountains and rivers in Yangshuo County highly recommended for your evening. Put together by famous Chinese director Yimou Zhang, the show is set on the Li River with karst peaks as backdrop, featuring magnificent folk music and dance.
Day 3:Guilin Sightseeing and Departure
