Photographer's Note

Couple of days spent in Yangshuo have been probably those which I enjoyed the most in China. This picture was taken during the cycling trip around Yangshuo rural area from the bridge on the Yulong river.
Yulong is not as big as Li but I would risk an opinion that maybe it goes through even more interesting places.
It is about 43 kilometers (26 miles) long, with a drainage area of approximately 158 square kilometers (39,043 acres). The part of the river that stretches from Yulong Bridge in Baisha Town, to Gongnong Bridge near Big Banyan, is known as the Yulong River Scenic Area, and includes some spectacular scenic views along each river bank.

The Chinese word 'Yulong' refers to 'meeting a dragon'. Local legend has it that a dragon from the East Sea strolled across the Yulong River and, being deeply impressed by the attractive landscape, decided to stay there forever. The villagers living on the river bank saw the dragon several times, and hence the river is named so.
