A cruise down the Li River to Yangshuo is one of the highlights of a holiday in Guilin, China.Among the Chinese, the saying, “Guilin has the most beautiful scenery in China, and Yangshuo is the most beautiful part of Guilin.”

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.

    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

  3. 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
