Cruising down the Li River

When you get to Guilin take the next bus or boat downt to Yangshuo. Because this is the much more interesting place with a layed-back atmosphere!
Between Xingping and Yangshuo you find the best part of the Li River. Try to avoid the big tourist titanics and choose the small boat for only 6 people.
Well, durung low water season you have no other choice anyway;-)

Floating down a branch of the Li River

On a bike tour around Yangshuo I took a float that you can hire along the branches of the Li River. I dont remember if this was the Jinbao?
But I enjoyed it very much because it was soooo quiet. And the landscape is magnificent, like everywhere around Yangshuo.

Bicycle ride around Moon Hill

You certainly should do bicycle tours around the countryside of Yangshuo. You get bikes for 5 to 10 Yuan a day (at least during springtime). No need for guides because they will get you to tourist spots like the fake butterfly grottoe, which is completely artificial, made out of concrete;-)
Just get a map and go on your own exploration!
