Li River in Misty Rain: A Chinese painting gallery

Post Time: December 24,2012 By Vanessa Li

Li River Cruise
It is my second Li River tour. Last year I hiked along this River, and this year, since it was a light rainy, I chose to do a Li River cruise. The Li River was so beautiful in the misty rain, just like a Chinese painting gallery.
 
Reminding Guilin my favorite spot here must be Li River. My first time to Li River, it was a sunny day, the beauty full Li River made me so happy that I did not feel any tried during the hiking. This time to Li River, the weather is not so good, and it was a little rainy. I had thought that it was not a good day to do the Li River cruise, but I was wrong. In the misty rain, the landscape of Li River had another different beauty, which was surprised me.
 
It did not stop raining. Our boat passed through the green water and hills, which liked that I walked into a Chinese painting gallery. Standing on the deck, it was so wet outside, white mist winding through hills. The distant hill, close water and local-style houses were so tranquil. Along the cruise, the rain and mist, the reflection of hills in the water, mists and ripples, etc… all the scenes, I felt that maybe I am in my dream.
 
Slowly, our boat passed though the gallery. All the way in the gallery, the stunning paintings made me do not want to get off the boat. I heard that Li River is always beauty all year round. In sunshine, rain, snow, mist, all the weathers, Li River has it different beauties that attracts tourists from all over the world.
 
It isn’t it like a dreaming world?
