on the Li river bank
Because Yangshuo was so hot and humid it was impossible to live, I decided to spend my days on the water, kayaking and canoeing. I did a kayak descent on a Li river and an air canoe descent on a Yulong river. So I gave my camera a rest and it was in a room for most of my stay there (what a relief for my back!)

Scenery is impresive! A bit less impressive however is all the trash that is flowing on both of the rivers surfaces.I mentioned it to my water agency guide and he explained it was just a result of too many tourists. There was a lot of non tourist stuff floating in both Li and Yulong rivers. I agree its a same problem in all touristic areas, but here, they don seem to have adressed the issue yet. I wonder how the rivers will be in 10 years time.

Besides the watersports and main attractions I visited on bike there was another "must see" in the town. Zhang Yimou s light and music show IMPRESSION SANJIE LIU that takes place at night on a water surface, with the lit karst mountains as the background. We were lucky enough, cause the night was clear and when the lights were turned off before the show began...the stars would shine brightly up above us.

Many times so called "typical this, typical that" performances for tourists are a big rip-off. This one is very well worth going to! Zhang the man! Any time again!
