Guilin Cruise - Four Lakes & Two Rivers

Four Lakes GuilinGuilin's water consists of two rivers and four lakes. Two rivers are the Li River (Lijiang River) and Taohua River (Peach Blossom River), while the four lakes are Ronghu, Shanhu, Guihu and Mulong Lakes. Together these bodies of water form the Guilin Water System's Dream Tour. This tour and construction of the water system began during the Tang Dynasty and was popular in Song Dynasty. During these periods, there were many lakes and ponds scattered throughout Guilin. The city's water system was thus highly developed. People could get to and enjoy all the well-known scenic spots by a small boat.

However, with the passage of time, the ¡°two rivers and four lakes' were cut off from one another and Guilin's Water System became fragmented and the water quality worsened. In 1998, Guilin carried out the "Two Rivers and Four Lakes" project. This involved connecting the rivers and the silt and din, drawing water into lakes, making the hills and surrounding landscape greener, building the roads and bridges, and improving the cultural attractions. This project has not only rebuilt and expanded Guilin's old water system, but also improved the ecological environment of the central city and boosted its appearance and quality of life. For example, pleasure boats can once again be seen sailing on the waters within the city. This recreational landscape is one of the best in China.

 


Yunnan is a perfect showpiece of China's many natural wonders, rugged, wild, and unspoiled. The province is famed for its multitude of ethnic groups, of China's fifty-five officially recognized ethnic minorities, twenty-five can be found in Yunnan. Here visitors could find snow-capped mountains, mysterious deep valleys, peaceful highland lakes, magnificent Karst hills, tropical rainforests, and torrential rivers.

As the capital of China, Beijing is the political, cultural, and intellectual center of the country. Beijing has so much to offer travelers. The celebrated tourist center is filled with historical highlights, the most well known ones are: Great Wall, Forbidden City, Summer Palace, Temple of Heaven, Ming Tombs...
