    The best way to have Guilin imprinted in your memory is to be in the picture. Today you will take a 4-hour boat trip down the Li River. You will arrive in Yangshuo in the afternoon.

    You probably don't need a tour guide once you are in Yangshuo. Strolling around in the West Street will be rewarding.

     

    - Smart Tips:

  • Don't miss Yangshuo's signature dish: Beer Fish. There are countless restaurants claiming themselves to be the best, however, local peope tend to dine in small restaurants instead of the big ones.
