This is really transporting to an era of simpler times
and an environment of natural beauty
Guilin – it’s heaven on earth
It’s one of those places
That makes your heart yearn to return!
Fishermen Aided by Cormorants – Special Fishing Birds
The riverside karst hilly landscape, reminiscences of those limestone hills of Ipoh, Malaysia, & calm pristine waters with fishermen at work all fill an air with awe & refreshing wonder.
Li River meanders its way
through 52 miles of beautiful countryside, with
bamboo forests, dense reed-beds,
and incredibly bizarre rock formations
1.Boarding the boat for the cruise.
2. A seafood lunch was provided on board the cruise – delicious & sumptuous.
3. On the deck cruising along calm pristine waters.
4. Beautiful scenery at every turn.
5. Just enjoying the refreshing cold wind of the month of June 1989 on the open deck.
6. Shops & souvenirs galore after disembarking at Yangshuo.

Hi Paul, The pictures of Guilin certainly brought back memories. It really was so beautiful on the li river and we had the most delicious food – I especially remember eating crispy fried whole tiny shrimps plucked from the river and and cooked straight away. It’s wonderful that you have these photos. Mario, my late husband took so many pictures but they and the camera were all stolen later. Regards Giovanna

A first time visitor to China may visit Beijing, Xi’an and Shanghai, i certainly believe Guilin worth a visit as well. The southern landscape is so different with the north historic sites. Cormorants fishing, crusing on the Li River, impression liu san jie shows are wonderful things to do
Thank you for stopping by and leaving me my first comment. I appreciate it. Sounds like a wonderful trip. I love the picture you have here as well. It’s beautiful!
