Turn the classic journey along the Li River between Guilin and Yangshuo into a truly unforgettable experience by embarking on one of the recently launched four-star river cruises. Bask in comfort as every bend in the river brings a new and even more beautiful sight into view. Many of the karst formations are, with a little imagination, reminiscent of animals or objects, bearing names like Elephant Trunk Hill, Sword Cut Cliff, Reclining Flower Hill and many others. Along the way, you will also see graceful groves of bamboo, farmers tending to their rice paddies and lumbering water buffalos pulling carts or cooling off in the river. There will be an opportunity to disembark at a small village where guests have the chance to visit a local family’s home. This is without a doubt one of the most memorable (and relaxing) ways to enjoy the scenic landscapes of this region.
