Li-Jiang river cruise

Up early and on the bus at 8.00am for a 45 minute trip to the pier to get on the boat for a four hour cruise up the Li river  weaving under the amazing limestone karsts of this beautiful area.

On arrival we remember the famous words from the Hollywood blockbuster “We are not Alone”

Hundreds of tourists filled the departure hall and waited to get on the dozens of boats moored six deep at the pier.

Once aboard we headed off down the river amongst the Armada of boats. The four hour cruise was fine with lunch being served on each of the two decks around midday.

A typical Chinese lunch in an array of bain marie’s. Soup, rice, a couple of stir fried meat and veg, deep fried eggplant, braised cabbage and a few others that I forget.

If you watch the video you can share this beautiful area with us.

About Willie Wombat

Wombats come from Tasmania which is the island state at the bottom end of Australia. We enjoy traveling and try to do a bit before we get too old to enjoy it anymore. We are currently both (Mr. & Mrs. Wombat) in our seventies so the time must come soon to pull up the armchairs and footstools and settle down to life on our 17 acre property 30 klm from Hobart which is the capital of Tasmania.
