  • 桂林山水甲天下 Mountain and water (read: landscape) in Guilin is the best heaven, a very well-known formulation by every Chinese over a whole world.

In fact, Li River runs throughout gigantic karst landscape from Guilin to Yangshuo (most beautiful part in Yangshuo) is the thing, which makes Guilin world famous. Guilin is just a gateway to Yangshuo! Here is sunrise at Xianggong Hill in Yangshuo 阳朔相公山日出. Like a painting?

🇨🇳INFORMATION🇨🇳
South of China is a typical region of karst topography, where Guilin and Yangshuo’s hills and caves, Yunnan’s Stone Forest, and Guizhou’s Xiaoqikong are the best examples.
.
➡️But what is karst? It is a landscape formed by the dissolution of soluble bedrocks (mainly carbonate rocks such as limestone, dolomite and gypsum), featuring sinkholes, caves and underground streams. Karst topography is relatively fragile and unstable in geographic terms, yet it creates fabulous and unique landscapes around the world.
.
➡️Why Guilin/Yangshuo has fantastic karst landscape? It is estimated that some hundred million years ago, the area where Guilin is located was a gulf. In the long years, the seabed was covered with thick calcareous sediments, which were slowly dissolving and shaped by the salty sea water at the same time.

Thus the original appearance of Guilin’s hills and caves had been formed. Later came the movements of the earth crust, and the seabed rose, cracked and gradually formed the landscape of Guilin.

After millions of years, with erosions of the wind, rain and rivers, the hills and caves developed into what we can see today, fantastic and unbelievable.

  • If things don’t work out as you expected you should be ready to make significant changes.

Summer has gone and eight months has passed. Few people know that in January I had absolutely different plans for this year, and all what you see now would not have happened. Life had its own plan and turned me in the direction I’m going now...in February I didn’t know how to proceed when my plan was disrupted.
But I accepted circumstances and tried to make best of what I can.
And you know I’m happy now that things work out as they did. I’m happy to reach all these opportunities. All  the people around me and all the knowledge I got during this period. I am happy that half of my New Year Plans are almost accomplished.

Sometimes we feel sad and disappointed that our plan is disrupted. Think about it other way - maybe life want to say to u that it’s time for something more?
If you are stuck in some particular line you should be ready to switch in order to convert our failures into our advantage.
It's the way forward, isn't it?
——
Если что-то идёт не так, как вы ожидали, вы должны быть готовы к значительным изменениям.

Лето прошло и прошло 8 месяцев. Мало кто знает, что в январе у меня были совершенно другие планы на этот год, и все, что вы видите сейчас, не случилось бы, если бы...Жизнь имела свой собственный план и повернула меня в том направлении, в котором я сейчас иду...В феврале я не знала, как действовать, когда мой план был провален. Но я приняла обстоятельства и постаралась сделать лучшее из того, что я могу.
И вы знаете, я счастлива сейчас, что всё получилось так, как получилось. Я счастлива иметь все эти возможности, людей, которых я встретила за этот период и все знания, которые я получила. Я счастлива, что половина моих новогодних планов почти выполнена.
Иногда мы разочаровываемся, что наш план не идёт так, как задумано. Но подумайте об этом в другом ключе - может быть, жизнь хочет сказать вам, что сейчас время для чего-то другого и может даже большего?
Если вы застряли в какой-то конкретной плоскости, вы должны быть готовы переключиться, чтобы в конечном итоге  превратить наши неудачи в наше преимущество. Это ведь и есть путь вперёд, не так ли?

  • A corner of Zhaoxing Dong Village at Qiandongnan Area in Guizhou Province 贵州黔东南肇兴侗寨.
.
🇨🇳INFORMATION🇨🇳
Guizhou is a province in China with many different ethnic people groups. The second largest is Dong People 侗族, most this village. Read below about different nationality population in percentage in Guizhou:

苗族 Miao 1,594,939 41.48%
侗族 Dong 1,207,197 31.40%
汉族 Han 742,109 19.30%
水族 Shui 62,492 1.63%
布依族 Buyei 40,148 1.04%
土家族 Tujia 39,512 1.03%
畲族 She 37,3150.97%
它类无名 ethnicity not given 32,109 0.84%
仫佬族 Mulam 25,286 0.66%
壮族 Zhuang 25,257 0.66%
瑶族 Yao 24,753 0.64%
彝族 Yi 5,707 0.15%
回族 Hui 2,389 0.06%
仡佬族 Gelao1,958 0.05%
其它 Others 3,526 0.09%

Walking into Zhaoxing Dong Village, you will feel as though the clock is being turned back. All the buildings in the village are wooden-stilt houses. This is a picturesque village noted for the beautiful natural sights and unique ethnic flavor, surrounded by verdant mountains with a crystal stream running through.

In Zhaoxing Dong Village, everything is simple and far removed from the influence of modern urbanised city life. Only the murmur of the little brooks, the happy songs of Dong People and the rhythmic beating of the rods for laundry will provide the occasional sounds of daily life.

The verdant mountains, simple but elegant houses and the smiling faces of Dong People will greet you and complete this natural feast for your senses.

  • So many buildings and houses in Chongqing (previous photo), but this time only one pagoda with single woman in Guilin. This is Sun Pagoda from "Two Rivers and Four Lakes Scenic Area" in Guilin 桂林两江四湖景区日塔.
.
🇨🇳INFORMATION🇨🇳
There are two towers The Sun and The Moon Pagodas 日塔和月塔 in Fir Lake. The Sun Tower is painted gold and the taller one of the two. In the night it is lit with bright yellow lights. The Moon Tower has deep brown beams and aqua eaves. It outshines the moon at night, with its artificial white lights.

Well, Two Towers are located in the scenic area of Two Rivers and the Four Lakes, which forms a continuous picturesque waterway through the center of Guilin.

Two Rivers:
Li River 漓江
Peach Blossom River 桃花江

Four Lakes:
Fir Lake 杉湖
Banyan Lake 榕湖
Osmanthus Lake 桂湖
Wooden Dragon Lake 木龙湖

Banyan Lake & Fir Lake are largest and most famous lakes on Two Rivers and Four Lakes cruise. They are located in the very center of Guilin, either side of Zhongshan Middle Road.

The origin of both parks dates back to Tang Dynasty (618-907), when they were part of a city moat. As Guilin expanded in all directions, the moat became a lake within the city area.
