True you can see the the 3 hill tops that is on the 20¥ bank note. Tha is most of the days, if not too much "fog.." River is as dirty as ever, a sleepy place and not crowded yes, but why go there at all ? Totally empty and anyone must be very desperate to see a half touristic... More

The small town is nothing special, but it s kinda of quiet by night and you can explore the small busy street nearby. But here is the place of view points: Laozhai with the typical horse shoe.bend (it takes at least 40 minute to reach the top with the camera stuff) and the 20 yuan view point. We even had... More

I loved Xing Ping! Here you get everything from bamboo rafting, shopping, beautiful karst mountains and last and not least the lovely 20 yuan picture, that's a must visit! We took a public bus from our hotel (Riverside Retreat Resort) by the gas station for RMB10 each. The journey took 40 mins. We took a leisurely stroll to the ancient... More

Place is about 25 Kms from yangshuo. I use a petrol motorbike as I was told that electric scooter is not advisable for that distance. There were beautiful vistas along the road to xingpingzhen . Resorts and restaurants were aplenty too. There is water boating for those inclined. Along the narrow streets of the ancient city were small stores selling... More

We came here to get the iconic 20 yuan picture and were not disappointed by the beauty of the place. The town itself is like a quaint version of West Street with lots of touristy shops done up nicely. By the river we took a bamboo boat which was 150 yuan between the four of us and this took us...

If you stay in yangshuo it is worth visiting xinping. Not only for the scenic spots over the river Li and the famous sightseeing you find on the 20 yuans note. ....but the old part of the city is very interesting with its old houses, the atmosphere is great. it is small but it was empty, nice and quiet.

Xing Ping is a great half day trip from Yangshuo. Take the local bus or hire a motor scooter and drive there - it takes 20 minutes. It is an ancient riverside village that is over 600 years old and the old Ming Dynasty buildings are still intact. The river traffic is now tourist bamboo rafts and the cafes and... More

This town is very over rated! The ancient street has turned into vendors selling souvenirs and coffee shops. The entire town is under construction, roads ripped up and expanding. It's claim to fame is the view from the ¥20 bill. It is a short walk from downtown or you can take one of the many offers from little motor bike... More
