    These are the views from the top of the 213 metre high Fubo Shan which offer good views of the Li River. Unfortunately it was a little wet when I was there so the views were not that brilliant.

    We were so excited when we saw these animals for the first time wading in the shallow waters of the Li River . They are pretty plentiful and used on the farms to do heavy work .
