It is the most significant influent ancient capital in China and one of the important birthplaces of the civilization of China.

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.


With unique beauty that goes beyond any words, the Lijiang River scenery is one of the most represented Chinese landscapes seen on traditional paintings and poems. As a breathtaking scenic spot, this China ten top tourist destinations featured on the current 20 RMB banknote is a worldly recognized sightseeing getting more and more fame all over the world.
