Li River is the soul of Guilin, where nature shows its creativity, giving the area the fame as "the finest scenery under heaven". The glamour of the Li River comes from not only the crystal clear water but also the uniquely shaped Karst hills, rice paddies, and bamboo groves lining the river. With a cute and picturesque river beckoning, there are never too many ways to explore it.

By a cruise: cruising down the Li River from Guilin to Yangshuo and tasting the cream of the crop of the river in comfort and laid-back way; some brief excursion to ancient villages after the cruise is also very popular.

Hiking: hiking along the Li River is just like walking into a classical Chinese ink painting. Appreciating the masterpieces of nature up-closely, you will understand why the local people say "I would rather live in Guilin than in Heaven".

By bike: Li River is suitable to rent a bike and cycle along; depending on physical strength, you can either choose a short route along the Yulong River, one of the most beautiful tributaries of Li River; or go further to embark on an 80 km cycling tour through the beautiful view and idyllic countryside and finally get back to Guilin. 

Kayaking: outdoor lovers can also get fun here, go kayaking down the Li River from Yangshuo for 1.5 - 2 hours is full of excitement and surprise; just think about the clear water and stunning views along.
