|An old saying describes like this: “Guilin is the most beautiful place in the world; Yangshuo is the most beautiful place in Guilin.” Located in northeastern part of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Yangshuo lies 63 kilometers south of the region’s capital city Guilin. It becomes one of the most fantastic towns on the shore of Li River.
Yangshuo not only boasts picturesque landscapes, but also rich cultural heritage. Ancient construction, bridges, and stone carvings can be spotted in the beautiful natural scenery. Most of the original culture of the town has been absorbed into the tourist industry. For example, Yang Shuo you can “rent” a fisherman with cormorants to watch him go fishing with them. You can also “rent” local women in traditional ethnic dress, to pose for photographs.
Surrounded by karst peaks and bordered on one side by the Li River it is easily accessible by bus or by boat from nearby Guilin. Over the years, it has become popular with foreign backpackers. If time permit, rent a bicycle and explore the mysterious and picturesque town could be a pleasant experience.
