Nothing showcases the beauty of the landscapes of the Li, and the Guangxi region, better than a voyage down the river. Drifting from the city of Guilin down to the vibrant resort town of Yangshuo, which takes about four hours, your way is lined with striking jagged karst peaks and lush, pastoral scenes. This scenery has long inspired artists and poets, becoming the epitome of Chinese landscapes – the Li even appears on the 20 yuan bank note!

Your final destination, the charming Yangshuo, sits in the midst of some of the area’s most incredible countryside. In the town’s surroundings you can take part in all manner of activities from cycling and rock climbing to walking and bamboo rafting. The most famous residents of the Li River are the cormorant fishermen. With their conical hats, bamboo rafts and glossy, black winged companions, this traditional technique gives you a glimpse of a China of times-gone-by.
