Best experience: Towards the end of the street where everything is under construction, some old lady making slippers basically dragged me into her shop to get me to buy some of her wares. I told her politely that I was going to meet some people, but she insisted. I told her my feet were too big to fit the standard... More

Do visit the wet market to see what is being sold. What you see would provide an excellent introduction to the local cuisine. Xing Ping is a good starting point for a pleasant and easy 5km walk to see the "9 horses karst mountains".

The mountains printed on the 20 Yuan note are here - a breathtaking view. The best stretch of the Li River is from here to Yangdi

The town was very nice with several historical buildings. Great view of the mountains from the 20 rmb note. Best part was going around the mountains overlooking the town especially at sunset

We spent half a day here having lunch and exploring the old section of town. The traditional grey stone buildings have been turned into little cafes, restaurants and shops. Very quaint and some unique eateries. A nice way to spend a few hours.

We visited in March and already it was crowded and over priced. I expected more having read up on the town but would prefer to return to the Yulong River which is much quieter and less spoilt

Definitely a great place to go to see some of China 300 years ago. We spent the days wandering the streets, buying local jewelry, and eating local treats. Take a bamboo ride!

The area isn't really as authentic as i'd hoped, and it's very much a tourist trap with old women constantly pestering you for a bamboo ride. Myself and my girlfriend called each other bamboo all day after hearing 'Hello, Bamboo?' constantly... The hike up Laozhai mountain overlooking the river is really the only reason to be there in my opinion.... More
