We visited the local market at Fuli. Nice to have a taste of the local life and interesting to walk by the rows off stalls: vegetables, poultry, rice, sugar cane, hairdressers, what not. There are also some food stalls. Be aware to check if it is ok to make a photo, not everyone likes it. We also walked around the... More

Take a bus from Yangshuo to Fuli Town. You need to walk for about 15 minutes to arrive at the main cobble stoned street/lane in Fuli. This is where you will see several shops selling small, medium and very large hand painted fans. You will also see a few tables in front of old houses with antiques displayed. At the... More

If you decide to come here you will be the only tourist around.The village has 4 houses that make the big and small fans.At the far end of the village is the jetty.You will feel out of place here.

The 5 of us went on a market day. We went to the Yangshuo bus station and ended up taking a whole van / mini-bus for RMB30. On the return trip, we shared with 9 other people and paid RMB3 each. We were dropped off along the main road where it looked quite new and ordinary. Had to walk several... More

the village of Fuli on the Li river downstream from Yangshuo catches our attention. It is described has having narrow cobblestone streets with worthwhile temples. Many old house have been covered with ugly bricks. The bank of the river is encumbered by what seems to be a gravel factory?. We do come across a lonely temple and a lovely corner... More

For this one, I'll keep to bullet points of what we saw: * random guy selling surgical gloves, who blew one up like a balloon for all to see * big open-air market full of household/clothing items/food -- very crowded and a bit dirty * big open food area with food stalls, many of which are best for the adventurous...

Easy 20 minute drive east of Yangshuo. Interesting old buildings amongst some of the new, down the narrow lane ways. River scene is spoilt by the building of the new dock but there are plenty of other places to get those shots. Enjoyed watching the fan makers and visiting Peng family gallery.

I visited Fuli on one of the days with the market. I got the boat to go across to the entrance of the village, very beautiful scenery on the way there and great spot for photographs around the old houses. The market was also fun to see.
