Local food.

Guilin rice noodles

According to history, Guilin Mifen (or rice noodle) derives from the Qin dynasty, more than 200 years ago. It is said that Guilin Mifen was produced by the soldiers in the Qin dynasty. To integrate China, the Qin emperor (Qin Shihuang) sent many soldiers to battlefields in the south. The soldiers from the North ate mostly noodles, and were not used to rice meals in Southern places like Yangshuo and Guilin, so to solve the problem, the general found a way to make the rice into something delicious. This dish became very popular among the Guilin and Yangshuo people.

This dish is usually eaten as a soup. The noodles are made of rice and are served with some minced meat (often you can choose between several kinds of meat) and peanuts or dried beans. To your own taste you can add spring onions, spices and pickled vegetables. The local Yangshuo people like it very spicy


Yang shuo Beer Fish

For its special taste and cooking method, Beer Fish is one of the most famous dishes in Yangshuo. It’s made with a fish from one of the local rivers in a blend of spices, herbs, tomato, celery, mushrooms and of course, beer.

This dish can be made with any kind of fish from the local rivers, but is best with a carp, because the carp is fat but not greasy. First, gut the fish, but do not scrape off the scales; Second, put some soy sauce on it and then fry it with ginger and garlic till the scale turns yellow; Then put some tomato, green pepper, celery, mushroom, sour pepper and oyster sauce into the pan. Of course, don’t forget the most important thing: beer!

c.’Impression Sanjie Liu’


The first chapter is the Red Impression: Folk Songs. On the water, many fishermen are rowing their bamboo rafts in a column. Either standing or squatting, they hang the large red silk in the sky and or upon the water. This red picture symbolizes the enthusiasm and praises the labors of the local people.


The second chapter is the Green Impression: Garden. The color green symbolizes nature as well as the vitality. Among the green hills and rivers, the smoke from cooking fires curls upward; herders are heading home with their cattle under the gleam of the sunset. The women, washing clothes beside the water are waiting for their husbands who are rowing the fishing rafts back home. This chapter reveals the peaceful and happy life of the local people.

The third chapter is the Golden Impression: Fishing Lights. Hundreds of bamboo rafts with golden fishing lights are spreading all over the river. The rafts, gently rocking make the golden fishing lights dance upon the waters, the straw rain capes, the frolic cormorants and the hills construct a perfect picture describing the simple existence of the people around the Li River.

The fourth chapter is the Blue Impression: Love Songs. Under the deep blue sky, and on the dark blue water, the performer of Sanjie is singing classical love songs. Then, a crescent-shaped boat with a charming fairy dancing in is flying onto the surface of the water. A group of pretty and young girls, dressed in red or white are bathing around the boat. In this blue world, these beautiful girls seem to become the notes of Sanjie’s love songs.

The last chapter is the Silvery Impression: Performance Grand Ceremony. As the ‘Wonder of Lijiang Culture’, this scenery reflects the traditional ceremony in Sanjie’s hometown according to the legend. Over 200 Zhuang girls form a long column across the bridge over the Li River. Their silver dresses make the river shimmer in a mysterious manner.
