Trip Notes

1. Free Time Suggestions

In Guilin:The night scenery in Guilin is beautiful and it makes a great way to unwind after a flight. The 'Two Rivers and Four Lakes' in the downtown area offer pleasant lakeside walks and night cruises.

In Yangshuo: Impression of Liu Sanjie is a spectacular evening show based on the life of the famous folk heroine Liu Sanjie ('Liu [surname] Third Sister'). The creation of renowned Chinese director Zhang Yimou, who choreographed the films Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Hero. it is set on the Li River itself, and uses the incredible natural scenery along with a cast of hundreds to tell a classic tale of love, intrigue, and tragedy. The music, lights, dancing, and natural beauty of the backdrop ensure you will not be disappointed. (The schedule and price may vary from high season to low season, and on public holidays.)

2. The Longji Rice Terraces in Different Seasons

The appearance of the terraces changes with the season – they're filled with pure clear water from the mountains in spring, green during the growing season in summer, golden when the rice is ready to be harvested in autumn, and wonderfully white when it snows in winter.

3. About the Li River Cruise Boats

Currently, either 3-star or 4-star riverboats are available for the Li River cruise. The 3-star boats are lower-priced, but have less-modern facilities. Their seat- spacing is narrower and the lunch on board is simpler.

The 4-star boats are the best. We will only use the relatively new 4-star boats, which serve a buffet lunch.
