The 3 Star Li River Cruise is the most common and popular Li River Cruise boat among Chinese domestic tourists. There are multiple boats (all of the same design, facilities and interior) departing daily from the Mopanshan Wharf on the outskirts of Guilin City. ​

​The interior of the boat facilities and overall cleanliness is at a reasonable level and is the best option for a cost-effective, comfortable Li River Cruise. We never sell tickets to the low-level cruise boats available so you can be assured that if booking this option, you will experience an enjoyable cruise.


These boats depart in the morning from Guilin Pier to Yangshuo Pier.
