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

Great scenery from the entire town, nestled in the karst along the Li River. This is an ancient town with old architecture, some very well worn. It is more authentic than your average tourist trap. Great shopping too. We did our best to walk all the main streets and side streets and boat dock area. My favorite spot was on... More

An interesting place to visit at this time. THe main street is being totally remodeled to appeal to tourists. But some older shops are still around. You can also witness how the infrastructure is put in place (roads, parking spaces) to handle tourist buses in the future who are expected to take many more people to Xing Ping. An interesting...

We travelled on public transport from Li village to Yangshuo and then changed buses to get to Xing Ping. Very cheap if basic buses. Lots to look at on the journey. Village itself has an amazing street for tourists but we also went exploring in the town itself. Can walk out to a viewpoint to see the same view that... More

Beautiful sleepy village, very beautiful but best time to go would be in spring. During this time, they are cutting the rice and burning a lot of the left overs.

We rafted to and from here. It was a lot bigger town than I thought it would be. We were there during market day so it was more crowded than usual. Our group liked the souvenir stands more than the vegetable market.

It was a quaint and small town, with lovely backdrop of Karst Mountains. The farmer's market was fascinating. Can be done in an hour or longer if you fancy the pizza options, and wandering through the craft stands.

Where you go for the prettiest part of the bamboo rafting. There also is an open air market where the locals go to buy their food -- meat and veggies. Pig heads, live fish, and raw meat. No flies, thank heavens.

If you like a feel of traditional unpolished old town then Xing ping town is a must go destination. Near the town also the jetty for the river cruise which has the most beautiful scenery for the whole of Guilin and it appears on the twenty Chinese Yuan dollar note. The town is also under going some construction upgrading so... More

Great view, cute small village. You can find some good cheap local places to eat but most of them are really touristic and expensive.
