To start with, Yangshuo County is one of the most beautiful places on earth, but you probably already knew that as you're looking at this!
If you go to a place so beautiful and serene, you don't want to stay in the middle of a town, as all Chinese towns are not relaxing places, and the actual town of Yangshuo is no exception (although much more pleasant than most!).
That is why Dongling Resort's location is perfect!
Set a five minute taxi ride or 30 minute walk from the centre of Yangshuo town, on a quiet hillside on the opposite side of the Li River, Dongling resorts beautiful Chinese gardens with their stone tables overlook the Li, Yangshuo, and the unbelievable scenery of this fairy-tale landscape.
The rooms are nice and very well maintained, although the beds are the usual hard Chinese style (which has done wonders for my back!), free fast wifi, computers in room, nice clean bathroom.
Breakfast not included, but was 35rmb for two persons and very tasty and substantial combination of western and Chinese styles. There is a restaurant next door but if you want variety for your lunch / dinner, it's a trip to Yangshuo town, which despite my previous warning is very pleasant in small doses!
Saving the best until last, Jan who runs the resort is exceptionally nice and helpful, and went very far out of her way to organise all our excursions and site seeing through trusted suppliers at good rates, and gave us clear instructions on how to get around and who to pay etc, even walking us to the bus stop and waiting with us. We checked-in late in the evening and there was beer and dumplings waiting for us. There were so many little touches like this it would take far too long to mention them all. She deserves an award, a medal or something, definitely a holiday as she was constantly helping all the guests! It was some of the best customer service I've ever seen!
