Probably what Yangshuo was before

Yangshuo is too touristy now and can be quite crowded. If you want to stay somewhere quieter and more quaint, Xing Ping is a great choice. You are still close to the Li river... read more

Yangshuo is too touristy now and can be quite crowded. If you want to stay somewhere quieter and more quaint, Xing Ping is a great choice. You are still close to the Li river. There is an excellent short hike at Laozai hill, where you have a bird's eye view of the Li river and the karst landscape. To get... More

This is another small village with its cobblestones pathways and old street houses - many of the houses are being modified and turning into modern cafes and shops. It is still not yet overcrowded with tourists and there are much more Westerner tourists here than some of the bigger cities like Hangzhou....everything here is still very reasonably priced compared to...

Cool city, a bit busy during the day, defintally the place to stay at night, it's chill and has a small town feel once the mobs of tourists leave for the night

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.
