We went there after dinner. Not so crowded owing to non peak season. Yet, many visitors from all walks of life, overseas or mainland. Shops for different commodities around. Bars with dancing girls attracted eyesight. Street shows everywhere. Restaurants along down the road. A must...More

Loud, noisy crowded street with street food, crowded restaurant and music bar, discotheques and more. Popular with youth for partying. Bars, drinks twice as expensive as other places in town. Food quality moderate to low

West Street is very busy, very touristy, but somehow still interesting and exciting. The setting is magnificent and you can see why so many western visitors have settled here. But if you are looking for authentic China this is not it, it was once but...More

Longsheng/Yangshuo/Guilin (4 Replies)
Hi Everyone, I have a 10 and 13 year old who get cranky [then I get cranky :)] if I take them to too many places. As we will be on a three week tour of China to some major cities, I was trying to relax a little with them in the rural areas of China and I was wanting to get right out of Guilin and go to Yangshuo and Longsheng. Seems like the only major thing I will miss in Longsheng would be the rice terrace. In Yangshuo there's a school to visit, West Street, a boat ride, hiking [did I...More

In Yangshuo also rent bikes and ride around the rice fields. Go climb Moon Hill and there are also some caves. Also take them to the market (across the main street at the end of West street) they may enjoy watching some strange food. Not sure that the long trip to Longsheng is such a good idea with kids this age.
