Looking for a weekend that differentiates itself by its activities and highlights, I spent the last hours of a previous weekend in Yangshuo looking for some new attractions on August 6th, actually the last weekend I spent in China.
Finding some interesting activities around Guilin vicinity is one of the easiest things to do, the topography and natural sceneries of this area of China being such a jewel. Living in Guilin in order to study Chinese, I woke up on a Saturday morning with no plans at all for the day except going out with friends and have some good time.

Bottle of water and snacks checked, we left by bus - the easiest way I've taken so far to travel in Guangxi Province - for the scenic area is located at about 29 km downstream from Guilin city, on the banks of the Li River.
