Beautiful during the day and also at night

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

Make sure you book a boat with high windows and glass roof. If you book one of the older boats with low windows and no glass roof and your not lucky to sit at a window you want be able to make a picture. I was on the tour in November so roof was closed and i had to go... More

Like most touristy things in Guilin this was expensive and overpriced. Heavy rain outside and steamed up windows made for poor visibility and what could be seen just wasn't that impressive. I was glad when it was over. Viewing was better on the left hand side of the boat. It might be better on a sunny day when you can... More

This a very clever presentation of the Guilin Two rivers and four lakes in Guilin. Theapprox 2 h boat trip at night gives the impression of magic place with the nice lighting of the surroundings. Highly recommended.

We thought we were going to see a traditional cormorant fishing display, but ended up on a boat on a series of lakes going under fake bridges copied from around the world, seeing brightly lit copied temples and pagodas Then, for a few minutes we were subjected to a horrrible man doing a display, which was in dim light but...

We had come to this area during the day for lunch, but this small lake (river) and two pagodas are not as noticeable. However, in night when excellent lighting comes on the water and silver-golden pagodas come out beautifully. A definite night time visiting place.
