The China from the pictures with mist covered, strangely shaped mountains that border a slow flowing river does exist!!.
Just board a cruise on the Li River from
Guilin to Yangshuo and a spectacular scenery will unfold for your eyes.
Eons of continuous erosion of the karst formations in the area have shaped the picture-perfect peaky mountains, set in a lush tropical environment. Just sit on the upperdeck and enjoy. 
 
The locals still use cormorants to do the fishing for them.
The city of Guilin itself is also well worth a visit.
