Yangshuo - Guangxi Province
A delightful small town best reached by the sublime boat trip from Guilin which takes around 4 hours. Once the preserve of backpackers, Yangshuo is now opening its doors to a wider audience. Unwind and spend a few days here cycling around some of the most fantastic scenery you could wish to see. Small villages, with their traditional way of life, are dotted throughout the lush paddy fields which in turn are bisected by the Rivers Li and its sister the Yulong. Everywhere you go the karst landscape forms a beautiful backdrop whether walking, cycling or drifting downstream on a bamboo raft.
