Li River is the soul of Guilin, where nature shows its creativity, giving the area the fame as "the finest scenery under heaven". The glamour of the Li River comes from not only the crystal clear water but also the uniquely shaped Karst hills, rice paddies, and bamboo groves lining the river. With a cute and picturesque river beckoning, there are never too many ways to explore it.
