Gulin China Riverboat Trip

A cruise along the Li River between Guilin and Yangshuo is an unforgettable experience. As you take in the stunning scenery there's something interesting to see at almost every bend in the river. Between spectacular limestone peaks you'll see graceful bamboo groves, farmers tending rice paddies, and lumbering water buffaloes pulling carts or cooling off in the river. You may see fishermen gliding along on their narrow bamboo rafts, and if you're very lucky you might see one of the famous fishing cormorants. Boats depart from various wharves, according to the height of the river at different times of the year.

I just discovered this video -- I was stunned in July 1997 by one of these tours! I NEVER thought I'd ever experience this again--- and it looks like I will and this time, Linda will be with me!!!!

Please enjoy the video!

I can't believe the trip is so soon. We are so jealous! We'd love to go to China also...just not on plane rides back and forth! :)
