The clear Longxi Brook moves slowly, passing Longxi Bridge with four arching caves and six pillars, spanning above green water into the Yangtze River. Under such circumstance, you couldn’t help but to remember one romantic poet. While there exists one beautiful girl from the farmhouse standing on the boat that floats on the surface of water, singing one plain folk song. Even you have one painting pen, still such scenery of Shangri-la can’t be produced.

Under such circumstance, although it is not in the heaven, but feels very much like in it.
