After our tour of Xi’an we took a flight to the proper Chinese countryside and the city of Guilin. Here we hopped onto a boat and cruised the famous Li River for the day. The Li River or Li Jiang (Chinese: 漓江; pinyin: Lí Jiāng) is a river in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China. It flows 83 kilometres from Guilin to Yangshuo, where one can experience the maginificent karst mountains and river sights along the way.

Can you see the bat?
