Day 2
Guilin: Li River Cruise and Countryside Tour (breakfast & lunch)
Morning

Today’s highlight is taking a cruise ship along the Li River from Guilin to Yangshuo. This has been recorded in the movie "The Painted Veil" and on the 20 Yuan Chinese banknote, and the Li River is well known at home and abroad. You will place yourself in a Chinese painting with the crystal water and limestone hills when cruising on the Li River. Every bend of the river opens up an amazing chapter of a picture book.

Tips: if you think that the 4-hour cruise is a bit of a chore, you can choose to do the bamboo rafting from Yangdi Pier to Xingping, which covers all the highlights of the River. It is a wonderful experience that helps you get closer in touch with the scenery. You can stop anywhere on the River to take photos.
