The Li River or Li Jiang is the only one from China in a list of the World’s Top 15 Rivers quoted CNN. The 83-kilometer section from Guilin to Yangshuo is the most beautiful part with the protruding hills, clear water, peculiar stones, bizarre caves, and quaint villages.

The essential section of the river is between Yangdi Village and Xingping Town. There are many places of interest between these two locations. Taking the bamboo raft or hiking makes visitors immerse themselves in the picturesque views.
