What a find! After spending a couple of noisy nights in downtown Yangshuo, we found the beautiful Outside Inn nestled in a small village a short bike ride from downtown Yangshuo. You can smell the flowers, hear the birds sing and really experience why we came to this area - the stunning karst mountains. Outside Inn has taken some of... More

This place is simply amazing. Clean rooms, nice staff, increadible view, good restaurant (a little pricey, as is every restaurant in the village though) and very nice view. You easily understand why Herbert, the owner, decided to settle down there, this place is amazing. The fact that it is outside the city (in a village 5 km from the center)... More

Very relaxed and friendly place in local Chinese style but with western comforts! Our whole family loved it - amazing good value meals. Wendy and the staff could not have been more helpful organising trips to the rice fields and light show - both brilliant. Cycling around the local villages with karst scenery and taking the bamboo raft was spectacular.... More

We don't visit very many places more than once because there are so many new things to see, but Yangshuo (and the Outside Inn) is worth a second visit. The Outside Inn is relaxing and the kind of place where you can spend the whole day and not feel like you've missed anything. We spent 4 nights here, and the... More

We stayed here just before the National Holiday. The location is great - a short taxi ride outside of Yangshuo, in peaceful countryside. Wendy was very friendly and helpful. She helped to organise trips and activities for us and was very knowledgable on the local area. I, unfortunately, suffered a bout of flu while I was staying there. Wendy was... More

Our family of four stayed at the Outside Inn for 7 nights, and absolutely loved it! Situated in what seems to be the middle of nowhere, this turned out to be one of it's greatest assets. The Karst mountains envelope you, and the first rate attention you receive from the Inn staff cannot be beat. All of the family was... More

We enjoyed our four nights at the Outside Inn and the friendly, very well english speaking staff advised us professional about bike and sightseeing options and helped us with onward travel plans. We definitely... More

Wow, after all the big cities in China it is just perfect to stay at the outside inn. In the middle of nature. Surrounded by kartsmountains. A ten minute walk through the amazing ricefields to the river. Great biking and hiking options. Bikes are for rent for reasonable prices. Lots of things to see and do here. We stayed for... More
