Li River

Scenes from the City of Guilin

15. Li River

Guilin's top attraction is the Li River (Li Jiang), which has posed for more painters and photographers than any other place in China --- and for good reason. If you like clear rivers, green bamboos, and sheer, twisting limestone pinnacles you will love the Li River. Han Yu (AD 768-824) described it in a poem as "The river is a blue ribbon of silk. The hills are hair pins of jade."
