The town of Yangshuo is just north east of the city of Guilin, one of the best places to spend some interesting time in China. From Guilin you can take the day cruise down the Li River to Yangshuo which is famous for the Impression Sanjie Liu show on the river with over 900 local people. The Li River cruise in itself is one of the most beautiful day cruises past the countryside dotted with haystack like hills and rural scenery. Yangshuo is a small town in which to spend a day on your own or with a local guide such as Wendy who will take you around and perhaps have lunch at her home too. Leaving the large cities and into the small towns and villages leaves you with the full experience of what I call the “Real China“. It remains one of my favorite places to visit when I am in China myself. Not far away too are more interesting places to visit that few tourists ever get to visit.
