Boat cruise on the Wuyang River
Zhenyuan, Qiandongnan, China, 557700
Boating through the Venice of GuizhouIn the fall of 2012 during National Holiday, I was invited on a trip with a Chinese family. I wouldn't want to experience the National Holiday traffic again, but if you can make it to Zhenyuan at a time other than an official Chinese public holiday, you won't regret it.
The boat ride at night through the town passes by ancient buildings, lit up in majestic colors. Stay at a hotel along the river for a quiet evening of sipping wine and soaking in the sights and sounds.
