    Some boys swimming in the Li River

    Most local folks who live nearby the Li River know how to swim. By wearing just an underwear, they will just swim to their heart's content. Water is clean and calm and most of all it's free and you won't be caught by police. There's even a swimming competition held during winter.

    Waterfall Climbing

    Climbing up one of the six waterfalls

    There are six waterfalls in Gudong National Park and all are suitable for climbing. You don't need any climbing gear just a pair of shoes made from grass will do. It only costs RMB5 per pair and is non-slippery. Along the way, there's a metal chain hanging on all the waterfalls. Use it as a guide and also for support in climbing.

    I'm a bit doubtful on the safety of waterfall climbing as I don't see any park personnel standing in guard. The climbers are mostly locals and university students from other parts of China. Climbers roll up their pants and jeans and carry a bag on their shoulders. Perhaps it's not so difficult to climb up all the six waterfalls by pulling up the chain and with all the guided steps on waterfall rocks.

    Equipment: You don't need any climbing gear just a pair of shoes made from grass will do. It only costs RMB5 per pair and is non-slippery.

    Bumper Cars

    Check out the Bumper Cars. They were fun to watch people enjoying themselves. It was mostly dads riding the cars with their young children.

    right in front of our hotel - on the banks of the Li River, there were dozens of people doing their Ta'i Chi exercises in the morning. Great to watch them - and even greater to join them!
