The duration from March to May is said to be the best time visiting Guilin because misty rain in the Lijiang River,appears to psychedelic with tenderness, and a sense of wonder was at the timeof viewing to river, or scenery or people themselves.

The section of Li River from Guilin to Yangshuo is 83 kilometers water distance. This distance is called gallery of hundred miles landscape, which looks like Chinese link & wash painting. Guilin is most famous for Li River with the clear water, and grotesque green hills along the river.
