“Be still like a mountain and flow like a great river.”
– Lao Tzu
Guilin’s spectacular misty mountains and lush landscaping is unique both to China and to the rest of the world – it has been an inspiration to Chinese poets and artists throughout the centuries. Along every twist and turn of the beautiful Li River, mist-shrouded limestone mountains, in all shapes and sizes, rise out of the water to form one of the most dramatic settings we’ve ever seen. Guilin was without doubt the highlight of our trip to China.
