Li river,which is scenic and known to run through Guilin has the most spectacular scenery I’ve seen. The river flowing through the mountain and reflections of the mighty mountains is beyond amazing!!
Our hotel travel agent,helped us book the bamboo speed raft which was near the hotel. It cost us 520 yuan for three people,and the boat had seats for 4 people. We opted for the hour trip (back and forth) and nicely asked the boat guy to stop at the end so that we can take pictures for 10 minutes. He was not so pleased with this but allowed us to do so hahah.
As we got off the old guy with the birds came along and wanted us to use his prompts. He charged us 50 yuan,though later one of the girls told us he overcharged ,it’s actually 10 yuan hahah (everything is negotiable around here).
The view will most definitely take your breath away!
Yangshuo was one of the best #chinatrips I have ever been on.
Nature out there is wild.
An absolute MUST DO if in China!
Fly into Guilin, spend one day/night in the city and then get yourself to Yangshuo for the unforgettable sights!
Use a local tour guide (#supportsmallbusiness) and enjoy the views from your scooter!
The land of epic karst mountains! 🤩 Have you ever visited Yangshuo? The landscape here is simply surreal and otherworldly.
➡️ Located in China’s Guangxi region, Guilin offers sceneries that have inspired generations of Chinese painters and artists. The Li River, courses through this region, with riverside villages to explore, ancient settlements to stop by, and verdant hills to climb. It's just... wow! ✨
Some of my favorite spots here? 💚 Moon Hill, Elephant Trunk Hill... oh, and definitely recommend taking a bamboo-raft ride or cycle through the dreamy valleys and villages around the river. It was one of the most interesting experiences ever!

The essence of Guilin's landscape lies in the scenery of Li River. Dubbed as the “best landscape in the world”, Guilin has appeared widely in elementary school textbooks. The two sides of the Li River have different mountains with different shapes. Among them, the most representative ones include the Nine Horse Mountain and the Yellow Cloth Shoal. The latter is featured on the back of the new 20 RMB notes. Visiting the Li River can be done by boat or bamboo rafts. The big boat is spacious but the bamboo raft is more exotic.
1. Lijiang experiences low tides from November to March every year, and due to these occurrences, there will be corresponding changes to the tour cruise routes.2. It is not advisable to go bamboo rafting during the high tide season of Lijiang.
