Photographer's Note

The Li River takes a sharp bend to the right here, and the resulting erosion has sliced one of these amazing mountains neatly in half.

As can be seen, we did get some clear weather while there.

This area is famous for its karst limestone landscapes. Many Chinese landscape paintings feature the somewhat unreal mountains near Yangshuo and Guilin. Naturally, cruising on the river is a "must do" for tourists, and a major local revenue source, since farming in this soil is not exactly lucrative.

Yangshuo itself is very much a backbacker hangout with dozens of cheap hotels and a variety of resaurants serving both very good Western food and questionable stuff the locals think to be Western food. Rice noodle lasagna just doesn't make my top ten list.
