Encyclopedia Article for Guilin

city, northeastern Zhuang Autonomous Region of Guangxi, southern China. The natural route centre of the Gui River basin, Guilin lies along the easiest of all the routes leading from central China to Guangdong province-that between the headwaters of the Xiang River in Hunan province and the upper waters of the Gui River (there called the Li River). The two streams were linked in early times by the remarkable Ling Canal, which thereby made it possible for small craft to pass between the Yangtze (north) and Xi (south) river systems.
