Li River, China

Photograph by Hua Qiao

An early-morning climb to the top of Xianggong Hill in Yangshuo, China, afforded this foggy view of the Li River. The popular waterway graces the back of the 20-yuan note, and sightseers on large tour boats or small bamboo rafts take daylong tours on the river.
