Li River: a good one for travelers

The Li River, in South China, ranks as one of the 15 best rivers in the world to travel on.

The river, which links the towns of Guilin and Yangshuo, ranked No. 14. The Amazon River was No. 1, while Russia's Volga River was No. 15, according to the CNN article. Many tourists like to ride a bamboo raft between the two, viewing stunning karst formations along the way. Others like to bike along the river.

China's most famous river is the Yangtze, closely followed by the Yellow River, but the Li River is becoming more well known all the time.

CNN made the ranking based on nature and wildlife, scenic beauty, culture, adventure and activity options, such as rafting and biking.
