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.

We went to Xingping for the afternoon and spent about 1 hour in the town and then rafted to see sunset. It was a terrific day trip from Yangshuo.

We took a walk along the ancient street after our raft ride down the Li River. The street is not particularly long and is similar to others we have seen. Bought some nut snacks from a shop that is making them fresh. We actually went into the kitchen to take some photos and see them making the snacks.. Lots of... More

The bamboo boat tour, if you are wanting a nice peaceful ride down the river, definitely do not go during a Chinese National Holiday. The place is bedlam, I cannot think of a word that really does justice to the Chinese holiday migration, but I think I now know what the Bison migration must have looked like. The scenery is... More

This little town/village has ancient part which is nice, but full with hostels and it's not really worth going there only for this. On the other hand it's nice to hike from Xingping along the Li river to Yangdi. Just about 15 minutes from Xingping you can see the scenery which is on the 20yuan bank note. The hike along... More

We took a bus from Yangsuo which will get you there in about an hour after a very bumpy ride. The old part is one or 2 streets, then you get to the harbour which is full of boats and touts. The view is ok, but actually we had already seen similar during a bike ride near Yangshuo. To prolong... More

Small area of generally untouched shop-houses. Nothing flash but an interesting sideline. especially on local farmers market day...full of hub-a- hub. Houses are Long in depth and narrow across the front....easier to defend!!! Lots of nooks and lanes. Several groups playing the obligatory cards. Cute mainly authentic...especially with a guide to show you around... Finishing point for Bamboo rafting

This village is the local ancient village where all the Li River excursions board, apart from Guilin and Yangshuo. After our river trip, we did go into the village, as it has a local market. The old tourist street is fairly short, not particularly well kept, and devoid of interesting shops or restaurants. The market is large and authentic, meaning... More
