Cruising down the Li River have been highlights of my previous visits to China, so with great anticipation I set my alarm for 3:15 UK time to enjoy a virtual trip down the same. Note: the cruises leave Guilin sometime after 9am Beijing time (2am BST) for a 4 hour journey to Yangzhou which means those of us in Europe have no option other than a midnight or early morning start. We joined the trip about half way down the river at Yangdi and escorted by a bubbly Yvonne, cruised for about 45 minutes to Xingping. It was cloudy as usual but that took nothing away from the spectacular views of the limestone karsts and bamboo shorelines - iconic Chinese scenery. Ample opportunity for postcards with Yvonne elbowing her way to good vantage points for us to take the best pictures. Noisy and chaotic at times, but hey, that’s China for you. It was soon over, we had to disembark (virtually) leaving passengers to their buffet lunch and another hour’s journey to Yangzhou. One point to note though - in future, you might want to save all references to the “beautiful” Xingping vista on the 20RMB note until, say, 5 minutes before you reach it, rather than continually refer to it as the cruise progresses and hence diminish its undoubted impact.
