个人观点

By water, by mountains, most lovely, Guilin
(1)by听上去象"buy"
(2)most lovely与By water, by mountains关系不明显
(3)说法太新, 不容易很快被接受.而"east or west..."是出自成语"east or west, home is best", 容易理解接受,内容新颖. 如果是外国人的创新可能比较好点,而如果是本国人创新那么很容易会被认为是'chinglish"
(4)'甲天下'有'第一'的气势,lovely则是小家碧玉的感觉.而用'top'似乎更准.(虽然感觉有点夸张)

桂林山水甲天下

my rendition:

Guilin wins the world for its mountains and waters.

It seems to me no participants in the contest has ever used the word "win," and I love mine more than anyone else's. By  "wins the world," I mean tourists from all parts of the world are coming to Guilin. I deserve a PRIZE!

:) :P ;P :lol

I will move mine to Special Chinese Terms.

Guilin, Goddess of the beholder.

谈谈几点:
1.既然是对外宣传的广告用语,就要广告语的味道译出来.广告语不一定是主谓宾齐全的一句话.
2.我们知道中国广告与西方的风格很不一样,中国电视里的广告词气势磅礴,什么什么第一,什么什么无敌;而西方的强调艺术,一切尽在不言中.译成英文,必须得考虑这一点.
3.我的版本受启示于"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". Goddess有"女神,绝色女子"的意思,beholder谕指"看客,游客".
