Cruise on the Li River to Yangshuo
The best way to enjoy the incredible scenery of the Guilin region is to take a cruise on the Li River to the town of Yangshuo. The relaxing journey lasts about 6 hours (with lunch included) and takes you beneath the spectacular karst peaks that have been carved by the elements over millions of years into bizarre shapes, each one of them given a name and an associated legend. As well as the mountains you will see rural scenes along the riverside - farmers in the fields wearing their conical hats, water buffalo grazing, and fisherman using trained cormorants to assist them in their work. Disembark in the picturesque town of Yangshuo, where you will have time to browse in the market before being driven by car back to your hotel in Guilin.
