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

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.

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.
