-Travel to Yangshuo

Yangshuo lies in the northeast of Guangxi Province and to the southeast of Guilin City. The special geography gives it breath-taking beauty while over 1,400 years of history bless it with a deep traditional culture. The diverse ethnic minority groups including Hui, Zhuang, Yao and others, enrich it with special folk cultures represented by their various festivals; while many foreign residents add exotic flavors to its fascination. The No.1 destination to travel is the scenery along the Li River from Guilin to Yangshuo, well known as the best scenery in China. The area is characterized by karst limestone peaks that, eroded by the abundant rainfall of the region, take on unique and strange shapes.

Yangshuo also attracts visitors with its delicious specialty foods, such as Beer Fish, Niang dishes and special snacks including rice noodles and various glutinous rice cakes. You can taste them in most streets of the county. Be sure to find a local guide to take you to try them when you travel there. The local specialties such as the Shatian Shaddocks, kumquats and Chinese chestnuts are worth tasting as well. If you want to buy some souvenirs, painted fans, embroidered balls, and painted shirts are all good choices. You can buy these articles both in the travel spots and in the malls of the county.

Streets in Yangshuo are well kept in the original style, presenting the simple and primitive atmosphere of the ancient town. West Street is the most exciting one that locals call the 'Global Village'. There are not only many foreign tourists, but also quite a number of foreign residents managing cafés and restaurants. The exotic flavor, combined with the traditional culture, make the West Street world famous. Welcome to check out our other pages for more travel guide to Yangshuo or other famous cities in China.

Me and my familly of 4 will travel to Yangshuo this October. I'll ask for a local travel guide for our 4 days stay and how mush will cost that. We don't want something unusual but leisure ones, because we have seniors over 75. Just Yangshuo cruise and travel around this county. Thanks for your help.

Hello, I’d like to visit Fuli Town from Yangshuo. What is the best way for me to get there and how long does it take?

Name:Re:Yangshuo Travel Guide

You can go to 800-year-old Fuli Town in 20 minutes along the main highway by bus in Yangshuo, but the best way to go is via two wheels along village back roads and appreciate the foods and farming lore of the limestone karst studded landscape.

Thank you for asking. I recommend the Baisha markets near Yulong Qiao to you, accessible by bike through the Yulong valley.
