The cruise along the Li River takes 4-5 hours. It is a slow boat, that is able to float in water that is only 3 feet deep. The water is clear and green, unlike that of the Yangtze. Conversations are a jumble of German, Chinese, Spanish, English. The bamboo boats, Sampans, pull up alongside the cruise boats, grab hold, and try to sell fake jade to the tourists. Somebody must be buying it.
