There you will have the chance to take some wonderful pictures of minority people wearing exquisite costumes. The Longji Rice Terraces is a beautiful natural picture. The linked together rice terraces vary from season to season. For example, in spring, the water is irrigated into the fields and the terraces look like great chains or ribbons hung on the hillsides. When it is summer, green waves rush continuously down the mountainside from the heaven. The theme of autumn is the harvest, with the mountainside decorated with the gold of ripened millet. Before the Terraced Rice Paddies, we will stop to visit [Huangluo Red Yao minority village]. There every Yao woman has a beautiful long black hair on her head.

So we will go to visit the [Elephant Trunk Hill] first. It is the symbol of Guilin, and it look like an elephant standing in the Li River and drinking water from the river.

Using variable levels of water pressure and colored lights, accompanied by some lovely pieces of music, the water fountains can provide a delightful fantasia for the senses.
