Guilin, Guangxi Province, is the first stop of our year 2016 Chinese Scenic Tours, a place of best mountains-and-water in China.
We stayed two night at the City of the Guilin, visited some places inn the city, then toured the Lijiang River from a large boat.
Once we arrived in the county of Yangshue, we took a bamboo raft drifting in Yulong River. We were very fortunate that the planed items in Guilin were completed just in time just in time. A subsequent storm at the time we left Guilin simply disabled the whole area for several weeks.
