The adventure (4): The Karst landscape – Guilin to Yangshou
Chinese tourism – a small armada of boats
sets off down the River Li (Guilin to Yangshuo)
After a night in Guilin we had a boat trip down the River Li to Yangshuo with the famous limestone Karst hills as the main feature. These steep hills are a recurring theme in Chinese landscape paintings.
The cold, damp day with its swirling mists was a classic, although we would have preferred a rather warmer day...
