The Li River, in southeastern China, is also known as River Li or Lijang River, or if you want to keep it simple, using simplified Chinese characters as opposed to the traditional style, it's 漓江.
I've been told that the most scenic stretch of the Li River is between Yangdi and Xingping. It was a view of the Li River near Xingping that inspired the image on China's ¥20 RMB note.
