Among them, Xingping ancient town is bigger and just nearby Li-river. Over there, you can do the bamboo rafting or trekking along Li-river. Fuli is a smaller ancient town, and there are some traditional small workshops along the street. Fuli is on the way to Xingping. Daxu is on the opposite direction nearby Guilin. It is a street with some old houses. I personally like Xingping the firstly, then Fuli.

There is also another ancient named Jiuxiang, where is famed for its completed Qing dynasty construction residence. If you get a great tour guide, who do a good job to introduce the cultural history of this old town, then it really worthy you a try.

Xingping and Fuli are both near Yangshuo, and Daxu is near Guilin.

Besides Xingping and Fuli, you can also check out:

Putao Ancient Town (Stone City dating back to the Ming Dynasty, 30km from Yangshuo, get to nearby Luosi Mountain and go for a hike)

Langzi Ancient Town (in Gaotian 21km from Yangshuo, old, rugged ancient houses with fewer tourists)

Liugong Village (in Puyi County 15km from Yangshuo, can go cycling from Yangshuo to this village which used to be a trading center back in the Ming Dynasty)

Have fun!
