U.S. President Bill Clinton, first lady Hillary Clinton, their daughter and Hillary's mother arrived in Guilin on July 2. After the president spoke to a meeting about environmental protection at the foot of Camel Hill in Seven-Star Park they drove to the Mopanshan Dock where they were greeted by Li Zhaozhuo, Chairman of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, and his wife. They were to embark on an excursion on the Lijiang River. At the airport in Guilin
"I often sent pictures of the hills of Guilin which I painted to friends back home, but few believed what they saw." The writer was the Song-Dynasty scholar Fan Chengda and his comments show that the scenery of Guilin has been attracting and astonishing visitors for many centuries. It has also been the inspiration for classical Chinese landscapes of fantastically shaped peaks, studded with pines and small pavilions, partly shrouded in mist.
" Night at Fubo Mountain Fubo Mountain to the northeast of downtown Guilin by the Lijiang River has the Xinxi Marquis Temple built during the Tang Dynasty (618-907). The title of Xinxi Marquis was given to Fubo General Ma Yuan, so the name of the mountain. Half of the graceful lone peak of the mountain is in the river and the other half is on land. During flood season turbulent currents explode against the mountain rocks. On top of the mountain one sees an exquisite scenery like a traditional Chinese painting.
