The essence of Guilin's landscape lies in the scenery of Li River. Dubbed as the “best landscape in the world”, Guilin has appeared widely in elementary school textbooks. The two sides of the Li River have different mountains with different shapes. Among them, the most representative ones include the Nine Horse Mountain and the Yellow Cloth Shoal. The latter is featured on the back of the new 20 RMB notes. Visiting the Li River can be done by boat or bamboo rafts. The big boat is spacious but the bamboo raft is more exotic.
The Two Rivers and Four Lakes Scenic Area includes the Li River, Taohua River, Shan Lake, Rong Lake, Gui Lake, and Mulong Lake in the downtown area of Guilin.

Touring the Two Rivers and Four Lakes Scenic Area by boat is the main way to get around. Especially during the night, you can see the Guilin night view from multiple angles. There are also amazing performances for you to enjoy.
