Time Slows Down: The Li River

I’d had my fill of imperial palaces, warriors, pagodas, jade, and even pandas after a few weeks in China. Although I had been very pleasantly surprised by much of the Middle Kingdom and had relished the opportunity to see many big cities like Beijing, Xi’an, Chengdu, and Shanghai, the hectic pace and smothering crowds had me ready for more of the countryside as I headed south to Guilin, the Li River, and the small city of Yangshuo. 312 more words

Lexklein does a great job in this poetic account of one of my favorite travel destinations in China: the Li River in Yangshuo, Guangxi. With unique karst mountains taken right out of a painting, green vegetation lush and full of life, and the rustic lifestyle of local farmers and fishermen, the Li River is an easily accessible, must-visit stop on your journey. Heck, its landscape is even on the 20 RMB bill!
