“Have to stop by this place!”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

This is a really unique place, as it's not just a bar but also a bookshop with great, cheap new and used books. They also have some other souvenirs and items that other shops in Yangshuo don't seem to carry. Mostly though it's just an awesome place to hang out as the bartenders are really friendly and helpful. We just sat outside for a few hours, played chess on their chess set, and browsed through books. Excellent place to spend an hour or two to get out of the midday sun or to start off a night of bar hopping.

“Friendliest, welcoming little bar in China.”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

This place became my home, met some of the most amassing and great friends in this place in a setting that is great to get to know people. For groups of friends or people traveling alone that what to make friends and have a chat or chose there own music.
Every nationality will feel welcome and the place is set up quirky enough that it itself has great conversation starters.

You can by tours to North Korea and Iran as well as many other interesting places straight out of the bar. Which in itself makes it worth checking out.

I miss the place, but for sure will be back.
