When it is turning dark, it comes the best time for us to capture the amazing Xingping Fishing Lights （兴坪渔火 in Chinese） with the phone, camera or laptop. The so called fishing light is actually a traditional fishing method in Guilin region. As the sun is setting, the fishing men would row their bamboo boats to the deeper water in the heart of the river. They would firstly turn on the gas lamps to attract shoals of fish and then release the fishing eagles or throw the nets to formally start the fishing operation. Such fishing scenes are so primitive and thrilling that many tourists would gather around to find out what is happening. Over time, Xingping Fishing Light has become one of the best photo spots in Guilin.
