Li River Day Cruise

Everyone seems to know about the famous and beautiful Yangtze River Cruise but few seem to know about the Li River Cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo village in southern China. If you do not have the four or 5 days available for the Yangtze River Cruise but still want to take a short cruise, the Li River 5 hour cruise is fantastic through the hay stack like hills that surround the city of Guilin. A bus or your guide with car if taking a private tour will take you through the countryside to the boat dock located about 30 minutes from Guilin. Lunch is served on the boat and large windows make sure you do not miss anything viewing the farmers and fishermen along the river. There are also some sailings that stop at Crown Cave on the way which is a commercial cave as good as the Reed Flute Cave in the city. Arriving in Yangshuo village you can either go back to the city or stay over and enjoy this small town and especially the Night Show on the river produced by the man who did the Opening Ceremony at the Chinese Olympics. With over 900 villagers in the show, animals, lights and great music. It is a show not to be missed. Once a sleepy fishing village Guilin has become a tourist destination included in most tours.
