Not by human dwellings, not in crowded cities alone, are the sights and sounds of life. The wildest places of the earth are full of them – Solomon Northup.
Magical places are always beautiful and deserve to be contemplated ... Always stay on the bridge between the invisible and the visible - Paulo Coelho.
Located in the upstream of the Yulong River, the Fuli Bridge is a stone bridge that measures 30 meters long, 5 meters wide and 10 meters high and as built at the height of the Ming Dynasty around 500 years ago. It compliments its surroundings perfectly and its deep grey slabs blending in with the mighty karst mountains and the ancient trees that hang down over the river bank. It is the perfect place to enjoy the beauty of Yangshuo.
From a source high in the Mao'er Mountain, the Li River sweeps south toward Guilin and into the world's imagination. Millions each year take to its waters, weaving between poetic peaks and submerged islands in search of scenery that arguably epitomizes Chinese landscape beauty.
In the world's eyes, Guilin's karst hills and jade waters are quintessential China. Images of Guilin's iconic karst peaks dignify conference rooms and lobbies across China. The use of the Li River as an emblematic subject of Chinese landscape painting received the ultimate stamp of approval when it was pressed on the 20 yuan banknote.
