Journey on the Li River in China - Part3

Fisherman on the Li River
The Li River between Guilin and Yangshuo is one of the most beautiful landscapes of China.

In 221 BC Emperor Qin Shi Huang (秦始皇) built the 20 miles long Lingqu Canal (Magic channel 灵渠 灵渠 Ling Qu, soul-channel). The canal connects the Li River flowing southward with the Xiang River – Xiangjiang - flowing to the north. The Xiang River – a tributary of the Yangtze River - was also used for irrigation.

This part of the passage takes us from the city of Xingping along the Five Fingers Hill to Yangshuo.


Admire the fishermen on their narrow boats made of bamboo, who keep remarkably calm when the tourist ships pass nearby.

Yangshuo welcomes the guests with a market where all kinds of souvenirs are offered.
