Sitting comfortably on the cruise boat, you will feast your eye on the picturesque scenery along Li River, which looks like a landscape painting. The cruise will arrive at Yangdi at about 11:00, which is the beginning of Li River. Xingping is around 20 kilometers away.
A freshly cooked Chinese buffet lunch will be served on board the boat at about 12:00. Just enjoy the fresh food while seeingthe beautiful natural scenery. The cruise boat will arrive at the Yellow Reflection of Yellow Cloth at about 12:30.
The cruise will pass by Xingping Town at about 13:00 and reac Yangshuo Pier at about 13:30. As the cruise boat pulls down to the pier, it will take much time. You could have a rest before getting off the boat. Yangshuo is a small oriental but Western-influenced town with a 1000 year history.
After getting off the cruise boat, you will have 3 choices.
If you book the optional Yangshuo countryside tour by bamboo rafting along Yulong River at Baisha with your local guide, you will need to follow the guide to the parking lot to get in the car.
If you choose to stay in Yangshuo and say goodbye to your guide, please remember to bring your luggage with you to check in the cruise boat in the morning. Your guide will show you the way to your hotel in Yangshuo after getting off the cruise boat.
If you do not book the optional tour and go back to Guilin, you will need to be in Yangshuo on your own. Your local guide will tell you where to pick you up at what time. You could choose to stroll along the West Street in Yangshuo, which earns its name since almost everyone in West Street can speak fluent English and every restaurant or bar offers menus in several languages. You’ll feel no borders or distance here and will soon fall under the spell of this charismatic, welcoming small-town atmosphere. Moreover, West Street is flanked by fascinating little shops and vendor stands selling a broad variety of superior quality souvenirs with perfect gifts for friends and relatives.
