We had initially planned to stay a few days in Guilin, but we changed our mind after we realized that Guilin is a big city with all the big city inconveniences. Instead, we made a reservation in a retreat on the Li River near the much smaller town of Yangshuo. What a terrific idea we had! The hotel, overlooking the Li River was fantastic, we had amazing views of the karsts mountains on the other side, and a wonderful beach just a few minutes away. Very relaxing. The next day, we booked a cruise on the Li River, on a motorized bamboo raft boat. It was superb, absolutely on the same league as Halong Bay. Matthias and Oscar engaged in water gun fights with the Chinese tourists (at their great delight), we spotted the sight from the back of the 20 Yuan bill and ended this magical trip in the small but scenic village of Xinping.
