Day 19: Guilin - Li River Cruise - Yangshuo
We have a table on the second floor, first class seats, although we are not going to lie to you, the idea is not precisely to be here for a long time, the idea is to go up on deck and enjoy the incredible views during the next 4 hours that is the How long the cruise lasts.
The price of Li river cruise to Yangshuo You can hire it directly from an agency or from the same accommodation, most of them offer this service, which includes the transfer from Guilin to the port (approximately 30 minutes by car) plus to the Li River cruise (4 hours or so) by Approximately 395RMB per person. Cruises depart at 9 in the morning and arrive in Yangshuo about 1 noon. Once in Yangshuo you can choose to stay here or return to Guilin by bus in about 1 hour and a half.
There are two cruise options to choose from: ships with explanations in English, which is full of Westerners or ships with explanations in Chinese, which logically is full of local tourists. This last option is somewhat cheaper than the first 😉
You can book here in advance the Li River cruise from Yangshuo. Another of Guilin's most recommended excursions is to book this bamboo raft ride on the Li River.
A few minutes after 9:30 in the morning we set out under a totally uncovered sky and a sun that augurs us one day of the most complete after day, a bit cloudy, that we lived yesterday in the rice terraces of Longshen.
If we have to be honest, we only need a few minutes to see that the landscape in front of us is the landscape, we believe more spectacular than we have seen so far in our Trip to china and without a doubt, it is a crime Do not do this cruise or a similar one to show you these unique landscapes if you are in Guilin.
