At 270 miles long, the Li River is not one of China's mighty waterways. Yet it looms large in the national imagination, thanks to a breathtaking 52-mile stretch of river between the southwestern cities of Guilin and Yangshuo.
Believed to be the first Chinese woman on record to have trekked the length and breadth of India, Hong Mei recounts her adventures in a new book. Author appearance at Asia Society Hong Kong on October 28.
