Guanngxi Province is scenically one of the most impressive regions to visit in China, due to its spectacular landscape of craggy mountains that flank the Li River. Located in southern China the area has a pronounced tropical feel as it sits on the tropic of Cancer, this makes a welcome change from the rest of China. Guilin and Yangshuo are the two stars of the show and are completely beautiful.
With their unparalleled beauty with a dramatic backdrop of limestone karst mountains, it's possible to travel between Guilin and Yangshuo by boat. The combination of small villages that pepper the flower strewn hills, relaxed water buffalo and local fisherman ambling along the edges of the river sits in complete contrast to the hustle and bustle of China's large cities. The are really is a completely tranquil and overwhelmingly beautiful area.
