Guilin Li River

Recently the CNN made a list of the World’s 15 best rivers for travelers. Li River in Guilin became the only China`s river on the list.

The CNN says: China might be known for the Yangtze, but it’s difficult not to fall under the spell of the Li (Lijiang) River. You can take in the river’s breathtaking karst topography between the Guilin and Yangshuo via boat tour, while other travelers may prefer to opt for a traditional bamboo rafting trip along the smaller and less crowded Yulong River (a tributary of the Li River).

The CNN have debated among them, researched expert views and polled travelers around the world and scored lots of worldwide rivers for five qualities including scenic beauty, nature and wildlife, culture, adventure and activity options. Finally Li River takes the 14th place. Other rivers on the list include Amazon River (South America), Volga River (Russia), Ganges (India, Bangladesh), Nile (Africa), Colorado River (United States, Mexico) and other main rivers in the world.
