China - Yangshuo / Guilin

  

 


Guilin is most famous of its unique mountain formation combined with watery reflection and mist. Nonetheless, the most enjoyable part of this trip locates on Guilin's surrounding towns as the beauty of the towns is undisturbed by the urban development. While escaped from the city crowd, you'll understand why Guilin was renowned "桂林山水甲天下" (the best scenery of the world). It's just beautiful.

YS. Karaoked with new known friends. 
                   
Yinzi Cave 銀子岩, never expected inside a regular normal mountain hidden with beautiful rock and mineral formation. Can you imagine that 1.2 bn yrs ago the whole GL was under water? 

YS Li River pier. What's so enjoyable of YS is that one side of the river shore was developed as backpackers paradise, while the other side was left with untainted natural scenery. Just beautiful.
