Cruising on the Li river
Xingping to "Nice Horse Mountain" stretch situated within the Li River (Lijiang) is probably the most renowned and beautiful scenic area of China. The main river between Guilin and Yangshuo passes through this area. There are a number of large cruise ships for traveling this stretch of river; however due to their popularity these tours are becoming quite crowded and expensive. You are better off doing the round-about trip from Xingping with a local boat or with a bamboo raft. The trip can be arranged at the end of the day when the string of tourists cruise calm down and when the sun hides between the karst mountains and the curtains of bamboo trees. The whole trip takes around 1 hour.
You can reserve the river trip on the Lijiang from the Rosewood Hotel. We will also help you reach your departure and return point by bus or by any other way, this stretch of the river is 25km from Yangshuo.
