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

I came to Xing Ping to hike up Laozhai Mountain and check out the river scene. During my brief stay I also strolled along "Old Street" and meandered around the surrounding area. The town is very tourist oriented. I was constantly approached by ladies trying to sell bamboo raft rides. In fact, one lady followed me around town for almost... More

Not as great as expected, although the boat ride to Xing Ping was supposed to be good. The stay there was too short and not too much information on the village.

Great to come here to take that famous photo of you holding up the back of the 20 yuan note... It is very touristy here -so be warned. You will be hounded to death by everyone to take a friggin bamboo ride. You will curse the word "bamboo?" "bamboo?" after your visit.

Xing Ping is a small town on the Li River. There is a lot of of new construction but the old part of the town is a nice place to stroll around. Climb Lao Zhai Hill to get a good view of the surrounding Mountains. To get there go to the pier and turn left to the end (the opposite... More

Xingping has it's own character still (unlike Yangshuo), however while still a small town, it feels very touristy with many touts around down by the river. We walked through town, over the bridge towards the 20yuan scenery and found a lovely peaceful Inn to stay at with great views, very nice hosts and away from the hustle of town. This... More
