Guilin Yangshuo River Cruise

The River and area and Cruise around Guilin and Yangshuo is renowned throughout China, if not the whole world, for its hundreds of misty limestone mountains scattered around the countryside. The beautiful scenery here is a common subject of Chinese paintings as well as the inspiration for poetry. So after seeing enough beaches and cities in my life. I’m here in Guilin to Travel to Yangshuo by River cruise to stay for a few days to see what this place has to offer. The name of “Shangri-La” to westerners, (you have probably seen hotels named after this ) became famous in the west after an English writer wrote about a fictional paradise in China in the novel “Lost Horizon” in 1933. But this heavenly land was already part of the Chinese Culture for more than thousands of centuries ago, thanks to , an influential Eastern poet called, Tao Qian, in Chinese history. The poet depicted in his works some idyllic pastoral lands hidden from the outside world that he called “Tao Hua Yuan” (Peach Blossom Garden). Posthumously famous, Tao’s reference to this idyllic place stayed, and the name of “Tao Hua Yuan” has remained as a Chinese term synonymous with Utopia. It is a historical fact that is believed to have inspired Western countries. Based on this cultural piece of knowledge, the present Shangri-la area in Yangshuo is one of China’s best embodiment’s of Tao’s idyllic Utopia.
