Awesome river and lake views simply by cruising along the rivers and into the lakes, especially recommended to take the tour in early evening, when the lights are on, the city is shining all so beautifully before your eyes.

An interesting experience with the coloured lighting everywhere, pvailions and very Chinese bridges. Pleasant way to spend that time between dinner and late night drinkiing. Is also worth walking the route in daytime, the gardens, water, bridges and buildings are interesting.

This is a very nice boat tour that starts at the 2 pagodas and ends near the Elephant Trunk Hill. Along the way, we go through a mini-Panama Canal locks system where we descend from a lake to a river.

We made the boat trip. forecasted for 90 minutes it last in fact 50 minutes. We saw 4 lakes but we could see rivers. Perhaps we made a mistake to do it on 27th of january the last day of the year. Everything is made with actors but it is well made

Must see if you are in Guilin and it is close to Elephant Trunk Hill. The 2 pagodas and surrounding bridges are beautifully lit up at night.

Guilin is lovely, like all of China it is amazing, full of interest and culture. The river sights during the day and night are spectacular - it's a place to sit and watch the world go by. The temples are lovely so well worth the trip here. Note to holidayers..... As usual we tried to just wash our smalls...forget it... More

We took the night boat tour in Guilin of two rivers and four lakes. It is beautiful, and well worth doing. It takes about 90 minutes on the boat. The boat does have a Western-style bathroom. However, it appeared the toilet didn't flush, so I expect it might be rather bad by the end of the tour. Some boats had... More
