We are located exactly 2kms North of the center of Yangshuo and just on the West bank of the Li River

Two Roads

We now have 2 roads that access the Li River Retreat from Yangshuo

1. There is a new road that goes around the back of Yangshuo and is open 24 hours. This is the road that you would take if you are being driven in to the Retreat. We can provide transfers into the Retreat at any time of the day or night

2. The original road along the Li River is now only accessible, to pedestrians, bicycles and motorbikes. This is the best option to walk in or ride a bike into Yangshuo. This is a 2km trip from the Retreat to Yangshuo and it should take anything around 20-30 minutes

We can arrange a transfer from/to Guilin's airport, train station or any hotel in Guilin and we can do this at any time of the day or night
