Itinerary

You’ll meet at your hotel lobby in Guilin and head to the pier, where you’ll meet the rest of your small-group tour. Get ready to hop aboard a deluxe sightseeing vessel, where you can enjoy front row seat’s for the famously stunning countryside, making it one of the world's most scenic waterways. Sit back and relax as you cruise the waters of the picturesque Li River.

Lunch will be served on this all-inclusive boat tour, so you’ll have nothing to think about. Gaze at the rolling hills and traditional riverside villages as you dig into to an authentic Chinese buffet. Your boat will dock at Yangshuo, a small town surrounded by dramatic karst peaks.

Enjoy the otherworldly scenery, which is said to resemble a traditional Silk Screen print. You'll have plenty of time to explore the old neighborhoods on your own. Choose from a flexible set of options and opt to stay overnight in Yangshuo for a more in-depth visit, or head back to Guilin by direct transfer.
