Beautiful town by the river, perfect for relax with many tea-houses, shops, picturesque streets. Tuktuk drivers offer you to discover Jinji mountain with its amazing rope bridge (30RMB/pers, 3 km west of PingLe). Nice walk in the bamboo valley, it takes 1 hour to visit. Lugou bamboo sea is a tourist trap without interest, only a short drive in bamboo... More

I can see how the town might have been charming once upon a time but today it's one huge tourist trap.

This town is by a river. The scenary is beautiful and I enjoyed it very much. I was there for a day visit, but next time I would like to stay in one of the lodges and drink tea by the riverside. Also, the food served by a restaurant there was delicious and clean, although cheap.
