GuilinLijiang River 漓江 This river, the highlight of Guilin’s attractions, is one of the most famous places in China for tourists. This section, the most beautiful of the entire river, is 83km long and flows from Guilin to Yangshuo. Its banks have hills, cliffs and caves that can be enjoyed from a bamboo boat ride down the river. The Lijiang River was described by famous poet Hanyu as “a blue silk ribbon and the mountains resemble emerald hairpins”.  The Lijiang River flows from the Cat Mountain at Xinan county in northeast guilin past Guili, Yangshuo and empties into Gongchen River in Pingle County.  You will find true serenity when you see the beautiful scenes the Lijiang river has to offer from rollings hills reflected like a dream landscape in the river to green bamboo forests with water buffalos grazing nearby to lazy ducks wading in the river. The beauty of this river can only be experience to be understood.   The Li River is famous for its four sources of beauty: verdant mountains, fragrant waters, mysterious grottoes, and exquisite rocks. When journeying down the river, you can see waterfalls crashing down on rocks.  A boat trip on the peaceful Li River will be the most enjoyable part of a trip to Guilin.
