Its Great Wall, splendid palaces, beautiful gardens, old temples, a considerable variety of exhibitions and museums and former residences of celebrities show its glorious history and civilization. 

 

Xian ranks first among all ancient capital cities in China. Its time to be the capital is the longest, the quantity of dynasties which made Xian as their capital is the most (13 dynasties placed their capitals here.) in its over 3000 years history. It is the most significant influent ancient capital in China and one of the important birthplaces of the civilization of China. So far, Xian enjoys equal fame with Athens, Cairo and Rome as one of the four major ancient civilization capitals in the world.

 

Guilin area (include Yangshuo) along the Lijiang River with the stunning landscape is one the most picturesque areas in the world. The strangely shaped hills, or karsts, limpid mirror-like rivers with the verdant vegetation ranging from bamboo to conifers together with wonderful caves make Guilin a fairyland like sightseeing destination for all tourists.

 

The Lijiang River is one of the best highlights in China, known all over the world. 

 

Considered as the soul of Guilin where nature shows its own beautiful creativity giving to the area the rank of "the best landscape under heaven", the Lijiang River is the most famous and important natural attraction that people must visit if they have time when visiting China. Fascinating poets and painters since early ages, the Lijiang River stands today as one of the most popular and picturesque scenic spots of China. Endowed with amazing karstic hills, mountains, caves and little streams, the Lijiang River is a perfect place to admire rice paddies, bamboo groves and forests, waterfalls, water buffalos, ancient villages and the symbol of the area: fishermen and their cormorants floating by on bamboo rafts. Dotted with eye-feasting scenery, the river is always surprising with its surrounding lush landscape, fauna and peaks reflecting on the clear green and mirror-like water under the blue sky. As a real fairyland on earth, the Lijiang River is a jewel of the area, where generations of local Chinese people live by, out of the turmoil of big Chinese metropolis.

 

Winding through some truly spectacular rock formations that have become the famous highlights of the Guilin-Yangshuo area, the river never disappoints its visitors. Along the Lijiang River, travelers can experience original activities such as taking Lijiang River cruises and admiring the highlights along the river such as the Elephant Trunk Hill, the Nine Horses Mural Cliff, the highlight section of Lijiang River from Yangdi to Xingping, the scenery on the RMB banknotes of 20 Yuan as well as doing some hiking, camping, kayaking and taking photographies.

More Detail Info about the Lijiang River Cruise from Guilin Zhujiang Wharf to Yangshuo:

The Lijiang River flows 83 km (52 mi) from Guilin to Yangshuo, where the karst mountains and river sights highlight the famous Lijiang River cruise. Gorgeous Karst peaks give you surprises at each bend of the limpid river under the blue sky. Your way is lined with striking jagged karst peaks and lush, pastoral scenes. You can breathe the fresh air, feel gentle breeze and appreciate the fabulous landscape on both sides of Lijiang River. This scenery has long inspired artists and poets, becoming the epitome of Chinese landscapes – the Lijiang River even appears on the 20 yuan bank note!

 

Cruising on the Lijiang River from Guilin city to Yangshuo county is enjoyable no matter what the weather is like. During sunny days, tourists can enjoy the inverted reflection of the hills on both sides clearly in the water. During cloudy days, the hills are surrounded by mist and tourists may feel they are cruising in a mystical paradise. And when the rain comes, drizzle is like a vale, which covers the hills and river, and tourists may feel the poetic connotations of this too.

 

The Luxurious Cruising Ship departs from the Zhujiang Wharf which is around 34km/50 minutes drive to the south of central Guilin. Tourists embarking on the cruise ship from Zhujiang Wharf are required to show passport when purchasing ship tickets and boarding. They need to get to the wharf at least 30 minutes before departure to leave enough time for passport inspection. Normally it will take around 5 hours from Guilin to Yangshuo. The ship ticket also include a buffet lunch in the ship. But normally the ship staff will recommend tourists to pay more for some fish which were caught by the fisherman just in the morning. If you do not want to take the fish dish, just ignore it.

 

The river generally has Two Sections from Zhujiang Wharf. Various attractions like peaks and villages along the river have interesting descriptive names, which calls for much of your imagination to see what it is like. Listening to tour guides legendary stories about the attractions is a delightful experience when you are appreciating the landscapes. Most are mystical fairy and love stories.

 

In the First Section, which is from Ox Gorge (near the Bamboo River Wharf and the Mopanshan Wharf) to Water-Dropping Village, the most charming scenery of the cruise awaiting you include: Wangfu Rock (Yearning-for-Husbands-Return Rock), Crown Cave, Half-Side Ferry, Yangdi Village, Mural Hill (Nine Horses Mural Hill), Xianggong Mountain, Yellow Cloth Shoal (RMB20 banknote Scene), and Xingping Town.

 

From Yangdi to Xingping

Down stream from Yangdi to Xingping, the Li River passes an endless procession of distinct peaks and bamboo groves and the stunning landscape. This part is the highlight of the cruise. Pinnacled peaks pop up and surprise visitors at each bend of the river. Water buffalos patrol on the fields; ducks paddle in the waters; peasants reap paddies in front of village houses; fishermen use the cormorants to catch the fish and return them to the boat and kids go home singing songs. All these create an idyllic and beautiful scene of the life removed from concrete cities.

 

Nine Horses Mural Hill:

The hills and peaks in Guilin, crafted by nature, rise sharply from the ground in many different shapes. Each famous peak along the Lijiang River has been given a name based on its shape. Some peaks however require a great deal of imagination to see how it got its name. One of the most famous peaks along the Lijiang River is the 416-meter-high Nine Horses Mural Hill. The precipice of the Mural Hill is even and straight as if cut by knife, decorated with colors of white, yellow, gray and black. Images of nine horses may be seen indistinctly on the precipice, hence the name Nine Horse Mural Hill.

 

Yellow Cloth Shoal (RMB20 banknote Scene):

Floating downstream, after passing Mural Hill, you will find the Yellow Cloth Shoal. The cliffs are steeper and the river becomes wider and calmer here, so it is the best place to appreciate the reflections of the verdant peaks. It is no wonder that the newly-issued RMB20 note carries the image of this part of the river. The water is so limpid that the reflection of a huge yellow flagstone can be clearly seen on the water. It is like a yellow cloth spreading across the countryside, hence the name Yellow Cloth Shoal.

 

Xingping:

As you reach the area surrounding Xingping village, some of the most striking scenery along the Li River comes into view. The short distance between Xingping and Fishing Village (Yucun village) is the highlight of the cruise.

 

The river takes a big turn at Xingping and the beautiful landscape and country scenery will form a lifelong impression on visitors. Verdant bamboo greet visitors along the river while water buffalo eat grass casually on the fields, peasants harvest their crops, school children play on the way home, and fisherman float along on bamboo rafts with their cormorants.

 

The Second Section goes from Water-Dropping Village to Yangshuo where you can see Snail Hill, Green Lotus Peak (Bilian Peak), and Shutong Hill (Schoolboy Hill). The scenery is equally beautiful.

 

Your final destination, the charming Yangshuo town, sits in the midst of some of the area’s most incredible countryside. You can walk from the wharf to the West Street which is in the very center of Yangshuo County and famous for the restaurants and bars on it. In the town’s surroundings you can go cycling and rock climbing or walking and bamboo rafting. The most famous residents of the Lijiang 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.

The two most frequently staged are Manon (1884) and Werther (1892). He also composed oratorios, ballets, orchestral works, incidental music, piano pieces, songs and other music.
