Great experience!
Jul 2020
It was so interesting to walk the streets of the town and see people going about their daily lives. We had Passion flower jelly which was cold and refreshing, and a great lunch.

A patch of history in modern day
Dec 2019 • Couples
Daxu is defintely the place to go if visiting Guilin. The old houses, their way of living are still preserved in this modern age with the hints of wechat and alipay.
Great place to scavange for old coins, antique items and interesting and cheap streetfood.

What a wonderful way to see Old China.
Nov 2019
China Culture Tours/Cory introduced us to Mr Jun and we felt part of his family. We loved seeing Old China and understanding how they lived in the past and now.

Preservation of ancient town
Nov 2019
This is a very historic town where shipping in and out of the area was a boom to his area of Guilin. The architecture is like no other in China outside of Panyu!!

A Step Back in Time
Nov 2019
A couple of hours wandering Daxu takes you back to the pre-Revolution days for a glimpse of a lifestyle that's rapidly fading in modern China. Great to stroll through, and some residents will welcome you into their homes for a look at the way most Chinese used to live. Very enjoyable.

Really nice place to visit and get a feel for the 'old times'
Oct 2019
Just a beautiful example of the 'old world' in this lovely part of Guilin. You can see many examples of the old culture and experience seeing how things used to be done. We were lucky enough to go into a very old home and it was simply awesome. The streets are great and many photo opportunities so take the camera.

Beautiful old town
Sep 2019
Beautiful old town with a "quiet" part and a "busy" part. The quiet part consists of old houses still occupied by locals while the busy part are old houses converted into shops. You need to haggle when you buy in these places because it tends to be touristy.

A little disappointed in my visit
Aug 2019
I visited Daxu because of its history which is long and eventful, but there is not much of the ancient town to visit now. Sufficient to secure a few good photos, but like alot of places now, it is being overtaken by commercialism. Bamboo boat tours can be accessed here and there is plenty of eateries and refreshment booths

Daxu ancient town
Apr 2019 • Family
We took a bus nr 306 from sotheast Guilin. Its close or south from Seven star park. Easiest to fins bus stop on map and ask the reception. It costs 2 yuan and its 20 min ride.Follow the sign from main street to Ancient town. The best thing is to have a picture from google to show because nobody speaks English. The village is amazing. Take your time and just breath in the atmosphere. I had to go twice. My best memory of my trip is Daxu.
