Visit west street at night, plenty of restuarants, street food Market stalls and shops, to choose from. The crowds can be big and there are plenty of bars open. The only place to go of an evening in Yangshuo!

Yangshuo was the very first place I stopped in China. I stayed there for 3 weeks, then a few months later, 2 weeks again. My first arrival was in March and it was often so foggy, I thought the famed mountains must've been somewhere far away. I was staying at an international hostel run by the English teaching school I... More

This is an area entirely devoted to market stalls, but is fun to walk through, even if the traders are more pushy than most.

This area is very touristy but it's a great place to spend a relaxing afternoon & evening browsing the shops, grabbing a bite to eat & having a drink. We only had a couple of hours to spend here. I would have liked more time to just hang out.

It's a one street area developed for tourists to eat, shop and drink ! Plenty of night spots & eateries along with souvenirs. I did buy some small sweet citrus fruits for supper. Nothing much !

This is the street that one is funneled onto when getting off one of the Li River cruise boats. There are a lot of shops and street vendors peddling the usual T-shirts, silk goods, souvenirs, etc. at inflated prices to the throngs of tourists who get off the boats. It could be a fun experience for some but there are... More

I have heard a lot of good things about West Street when i first came to Yangshuo. Little did i know that althoug the place seems buzzling and full of attractions in the night there is really not a lot to do. The bars and pubs which we visited all had really loud music blasting. The waiters were really unfriendly... More

Plenty of souvenirs, restaurants and bars. Lots of street food. It gets super packed at night and it's a great place to hang out. I find the food to be a little pricey but overall very delicious. We stopped by every night to eat dinner. You can defiantly bargain to get some good deals.

My sisters and I loved West Street - the tea vendor that explained the ceremony of serving tea (then sold us local specialty - osmenthis tea, of course), the colourful sites, the charming stalls, all with the most stunning backdrop of mountains and river. Recommended for a browse, a bite to eat at Mei You Café, a fish foot nibble,... More
