I heard the best way to visit Li River is by cruise, right? Also, there is a short way by raft and you can enjoy the elite part of Li River. Which way is better?

Regarding the Li River Cruise, it depends on your interests. The Li River boat trip takes about 4 hours, but leisure and with lunch. You can enjoy the whole Li River on that cruise. The rafting travelling the highlights of Li River, which takes about 90 minutes. But the time and safty is what you should concern before you choose this way. So I recommend the Li River Cruise.

I will go to Lijing River Cruise, which section is the most beautiful?

Name:Re:Lijiang River Cruise

Thanks for your asking. the Huangbu Beach is the most beautiful section. It is the essence of Lijing. On the bottom of Huangbu Beach, there is a beige slate. It looks like a piece of yellow cloth when you look downward. Then the Huangbu Beach got its name. Lijiang River is broad and calm here, surrounded by seven peaks.
