Located above the Li River, it is the landmark bridge of Guilin city. The pallet bridge was formed in Song dynasty, called Dongjiang Bridge. When the water rises in spring and summer, the river is rushing, which is inherently called "Dongdu Chunlan".

Crystal Glass Bridge
Located above the Ronghu Lake, it connects the north bank of Ronghu Lake with the tiny island in the lake. With gorgeous form, it is crystal clear, the first bridge decorated completely with transparent material in China.
One bridge is perfectly decorated with ingenious craftsmanship. The homecoming bird is not familiar with new things, and inform each other to come and see. ——Song Gungyao
Seven StarDig Dipper Bridge
Located on the south side of Ancient South Gate, it connects the north shore of Ronghu Lake and the island in the lake. The shape of the bridge is unique. It is named because the seven lamp posts on the bridge like the Big Dipper.
The Seven Stars and Big Dipper are always connecting and like Ronghu Lake is dazzling. Why always distinguish the true and false? Crossing the bridge is like flying up to the nineth heaven?
Gurong Twin Bridge
Located between Ancient South Gate and Ronghu South Road, the bridge is based on the bridge type of Tianbaowu Bridge in Summer Palace and developed into a double bridge form, all decorated with white marble. There is a thousand-year-old banyan tree in the north side. It was once the place where Huang Tingjian, where a famous poet of the Song Dynasty, docked a boat when he passed by Guilin.
The double bridge is built on the side of Ronghu Lake, like a silver dragon lying on the blue sky. Architecture, trees, bridge and the lake reflect each other’s beauty, and the oriole will sing under the willow trees. -Wei Jianguang
Located on the Guobin Road of Ronghu Hotel, it was originally a three-arch stone bridge. It combines the architectural form of the Western Arc de Triomphe with the shape of ancient Chinese suspension bridges. On the top of the door, there are reliefs of the brothers and sisters of 56 ethnic groups in China, symbolizing the unity of the Chinese nation and the hospitality of Chinese people.
Beautiful flowers welcome guests at the bridgehead, and a boat is docking at a willow by the lake. ——Li Zhiyin
Located on Lize Lake, the bridge is a self-anchored flexible steel truss suspension bridge with complex structure, sophisticated design, high technical content, and precise process requirements.
Thousands of people walk in the Lize Bridge, and the Xinteng rainbow is amazing. The red rope is strung with a stainless-steel chain, the steel beam is stiff across the lake. ——Zhang Zimo
Located above Gui Lake, the bridge model is based on the legendary mathematical bridge designed and built by Newton in London, England. This bridge is a pedestrian bridge, because the used material is the precious red pine wood of our country.
The momentum is like waves flying across the shore, red fences and boards make half lake become red. Lu Ban passed down the axe back then and made great achievements in Xiqing. ——Wang Song
