Li River

The landscape of Guilin is the best in the world, and the landscape of Yangshuo is the best in Guilin. The length of the Li River section is 164 kilometers. Most of the riverbeds along the river are watery pebbles with small amount of sediment and clear water. Most of the straits are karst landforms. The tourism resources are abundant, and the famous Guilin landscape is on the Lijiang River. The scenery of the Lijiang River is known as “gree mountain, clear water, odd caves and beautiful stone”. The 83-kilometer Lijiang River section from Guilin to Yangshuo is the essence of the Li River, as well as the wonderful scenery of “Deep pools, rapids, springs, waterfalls”. It is a typical, rich and concentrated area of karst topography, which concentrates the essence of Guilin landscape. It is a feeling of “the boat is on the blue waves, people are in the middle of the painting.”

It will be a big pity without visiting the Li River when you are travelling in Guilin. The upper reach of the Li River is Guilin-Yangdi, and the lower reach is the area of Yangshuo. And the main attractions of the tour are the two places of Jiuma Mountain and the back of the 20-yuan banknote.

There are two ways to visit the Li River. One is to take a trip on a three-star or a four-star cruise. The price is moderate. There is also an electric bamboo raft for 4 people. Some people may feel that it is very noisy and it will be very cold. But it is more fantastic as you can experience the Li River much closer. And you will feel that the water surface is wide, the mountains on both sides are plunging. The water under the boat is green and the mountains are strange.

The landscape of Guilin, which has been extolled throughout the ages, is the most beautiful in the world. Perhaps it is the marvelous peaks and beautiful waters of the Li River that made the ancient people intoxicated with it and then recited this beautiful sentence for thousands of years. If you have read some verses that praise the landscape of the Lijiang River, you will feel it really beautiful. But when you are in this beautiful scenery, you will feel that the poems still can’t fully depict your mood at this moment. Perhaps it is because of people’s state of mind, and the time to enjoy the beauty is different, it is difficult to describe the beauty of this wonderful Li River. It is really worthy your visit.

The Terracotta Army Museum

When having a tour in Xi’an, you must take a visit to The Terracotta Army Museum where you can know more about China’s history.

After you arrive at the Terracotta Warriors, there are a lot of parking lots and the management is good. The tour guide also has their special place, and there is no fake tour guide. Qin Shihuang at the gate is still very domineering. From the gate to the Terracotta pit, you can take car or walk. What you enter into the first is the No. 1 pit, from where you can firstly see the black Qin army. Every sergeant has a strong eye, just like it was three thousand years ago. The striker, the scorpion shooter and the standing shooter alternate, followed by the famous cavalry phalanx, through the millennium, waiting for the sleeping monarch. The No. 3 pit features the highest level, as the decision-making, and sacrifices are all in the square inch. The four-horse carriage behind the door is ready to go.

They stand quietly here for thousands of years, showing you the power of a generation of empire.

Qutang Gorge

The Yangtze River gathers thousands of rivers in her process of more than 6,300 kilometers, crosses the deep mountain valleys, and plunges into the East China Sea. When she passed through the Sichuan Basin and accepted several major tributaries of the Minjiang River, Jialing River and Wujiang River, the amount of water suddenly increased, and the unstoppable momentum opened up the mountains, forming the world-famous Three Gorges.

The Three Gorges of the Yangtze River, from Baidi City in Fengjie County, Chongqing in the west, to Nanjin Pass in Yichang City, Hubei Province, consists of Qutang Gorge, Wu Gorge and Xiling Gorge, with a total length of 193 kilometers, including 8 km long in Qutang Gorge and 44 km in Wu Gorge and 76 kilometers long in Xiling Gorge. The remaining 65 kilometers are two sections of the hilly valley connecting the three gorges.

Qutang Gorge is also known as the Kui Gorge. It starts from Fengjie Baidi City in the west and Wushan Daixi in the east. It is famous for being powerful in the Three Gorges. Guo Moruo has a poem: “If the scenery is different, the Qutang Gorge is the leader in Three Gorges.” On the north and south sides of the Kuimen in the gorge narrow, there are thousands of cliffs, such as knives and axe cuts. The river flows in a narrow river course with a width of only 100 meters. It shows a spectacular scene of “the waters will be tens of thousands, and Qutang Gorge will compete for one”. Down the river, the water rapidly flows, when the boat flows over there, tourists will feel it amazing.

On the cliff of the North Shore, there is a man-made ruin of the ancient plank road. On the top it is the cliff, and the foot is a turbulent river. This is the only way for the ancient boatman, military transportation and merchants. Next to the plank road is a seven-door deep hole with a depth of more than 100 meters. Between the cliff rocks, there is the window facing the river. Looking up at the skylight, the twin peaks are inserted into the clouds, and the blue sky is on the line. Looking down, the river is running and the boat is like an arrow. When you enter into the hole, the stalactites stand like a bird and beast, which are very vivid.

Yu Garden

Yu Garden is located in the northeast of Shanghai’s old city, with Fuyou Road in the north, Anren Street in the east, and Shanghai Old Town Temple in the southwest. It is a classical garden in the south of the Yangtze River. It was built in the Jiajing years of the Ming Dynasty in 1590s and covers an area of more than 30 acres. In the garden, there are the three famous stones in the south of the Yangtze River: The Jade Linglong, the command post of the 1853 Small Knife Uprising, and the tourist attractions such as the Chenghuang Temple and the shopping street. Yu Garden was opened to the public in 1961 and was listed as a national key cultural relics protection unit by the State Council in 1982.

Yu Garden is more tasteful among the high-rise buildings in Shanghai. It was said that Yu Garden was originally a private garden in the Ming Dynasty. It has a history of more than 400 years. After the tour to Yu Garden, your impression will be that the rich people will play various things, and there are gardens in the garden. After crossing the rockery group, you will see a different garden. The design of the Yu Garden really makes people feel very happy and wish you could live and enjoy yourself there. There are many small sculptures on the top of the building in the Yu Garden. The patterns carved on the eaves are also endless. It can be said that this design is really meticulous.

Being one of the four famous gardens in China, the Yu Garden enjoys the same reputation as Humble Administrator’s Garden and the Lingering Garden in Suzhou. The winding path in the park is very typical, and it is the typical Jiangnan Art Garden, which is worth a visit. If you visit there in December, it is “colorful” Season and really beautiful. And the fish there is fat and big and colorful, and the fountains bloom like flowers.

Yu Garden’s green is very naughty, which is climbing everywhere. It’s still so beautiful even on a cloudy day, just like the beauty of a beautiful girl who is angry. The style of the tree in the Yu Garden also imitated the style of ancient buildings, and is more and more upturned, and the strange mountains and rocks of the Yu Garden are also worthy of appreciation.

Victoria Peak

The Victoria Peak is one of the must-see attractions for your travel to Hong Kong, and the mode of transportation to go there is by Central MTR Station (No. 5), take the No. 15 double-decker bus.

It is really recommended to take the double-decker bus directly, because there is no need to buy tickets for the Victoria Peak. Unless it is on the Motianling Observation Deck. The double-decker bus experience is superb excellent. Do remember to sit on the right side of the bus. When going up the mountain, the viewing angle is better.

Compared to the cable car, the fare will be higher. The round-trip package ticket bought online is 55RMB. You can refer to it. However, the queue of people waiting for the cable car is long and it takes a long time. However, if you have not taken the cable car, you can try it.

The night view of Hong Kong is really beautiful. It’s a good experience to have a relax at the top of the Victoria Peak at night after a busy day at work. In fact, the viewing the scenery is not necessarily on the viewing platform, and there are also places on the side that look at the night scene.

The deeper experience is that on the Victoria Peak there are really so many foreigners nearby. It may be Korean or Japanese etc., and many Indian friends are met there. They all like to take pictures collectively. It is very lively. At about 19:30 p.m., people are already full, and you need find a good location to take pictures.

At the top of the Victoria Peak, there is a special experience recommended for everyone: In addition to watching the scenery at The Peak Tower, you can take a walk along the top of the mountain to enjoy the different Hong Kong Island scenery. The starting point of the Peak Loop Walk is Luji Road and the end point is Xiali Road. Along the way, you will be able to enjoy panoramic views of Victoria Harbour from various angles, as well as the Tsing Yi Bridge and Pokfulam Reservoir, all make your tour there worthwhile.

The Elephant Trunk Hill

At night, the Elephant Trunk Hill is dressed with colorful costumes. Under the background of the fisherman’s lights, a legend of Elephant Trunk Hill is staged, and if the slightly higher fare of this attraction is ignored, the night view of Elephant Trunk Hill is one of the best in the night view of Guilin.

Highlights: Guilin’s iconic sights, panoramic views of Guilin at the top of the mountain, and light show performances at night


1, The Xiangshan Park needs to buy tickets to enter the park during the day and night;

2, the ticket is very expensive, whether it is day or night, the cost performance is low in some people’s view;

3, at night, ” Legend of elephant mountain ” performance starts at 20:00, only lasts for 15 minutes, 19:45 is a fisherman show, the laser show performance is more general, some people buy the ticket purely for the night scene;

4, Xiangshan Park attractions are more tasteless and it is expensive, the trip can be skipped directly.

After the beautiful sunset in the evening, the gorgeous sunset glowed the giant elephant into pink. The Xiangshan udakacandra on the west bank is opposite to the lunar cave on the east bank of the Li River. One hangs in the sky and one floats on the water, forming a peculiar landscape of the “Lijiang River Double Moon”. In an instant, the sky is dyed into dark red, like a magnificent red ocean, which is very spectacular, it is really as “this scene should only be in the sky, the world can get a few views.” In the Elephant Trunk Hill encounters the most beautiful sunset, you will feel it really worth it for your Guilin tour.

Generally speaking, everyone goes to Xiangshan Park to take a picture of the elephant’s nose. However, as a park that is squandered by locals and tourists, Xiangshan Park’s ticket price has so far stood up, and the official website has a price of 70 Yuan for it. If you plan to shoot the elephant’s nose, go directly to the 2nd entrance and exit after entering the park, the elephant trunk is there, don’t climb the mountain, because there is nothing on the mountain. Although basically everyone understands that there is no such thing in the park, it does not stop the obsession of tourists.
