Guilin Liu San Jie Park

Liu San Jie Park (Third Sister Liu)

Liu San Jie, or third sister Liu, is a famous Chinese folk song singer. She was beautiful and was an outstanding folk song singer of the Zhuang nationality during the Tang Dynasty (618-907). She was born in a village along the Li River. She fell in love with a handsome young man who was also good at singing folk songs, and the two vowed to never separate from each other.

However, a evil man in the village was attracted by Liu SanJie's beauty for a long time and decided to take her by force. On a moonlit night, the evil man and his cronies tried to take Liu San Jie away while she was sitting at the riverside with her lover. With no where to escape, the two jumped into the Li River hand in hand, and that became the legend of Liu SanJie.
