The Li River has several ways of enjoying it, but one of the must do’s is to experience the Li River on a bamboo boat. And yes, I know that it is not really bamboo, but hey, its still pretty damn cool!

The karst landscape which makes the Li River an AbsoluteVisit never gets old as it is forever changing. And, wondering if your “bamboo” boat rigged with a lawn mower boat engine is going to make it up the river makes it all the more exciting!

Photo of the Day – Rooftops to the Li River – Yangshuo, China

As we climbed the stairs to the top of our hostel for breakfast, my mind was already wandering with what the view from the top might look like, but I was not prepared for the sight before me. I took this picture from the rooftop of our hostel which as you can see was about even with the others around us. Fortunately, the rooftop was aimed directly at the Li River and the Karst Landscape which has make the Li River and its surrounding areas so famous.
