XingPing is a place for many attractions about 40-60 min from Yanshuo town. You can take motor boat to take you up and down Li River, which is not at all as good as Bamboo boats you can take in Yulong River. It's a bit...More

The village is ok, a slice of rural life that's for sure, but not as idylic as you might imagine! Lots of people trying to sell you stuff but some nice streets. The hike isn't really great either, ok views at the end. The views...More
