We visited local Fuli local market by car on our way back from XinPing. You cannot get more local than this... They sell everything there.... Imagine my horror when we walked directly into poultry row... It was too late to turn back and somehow I didn't feel appropriate to put on masks that I am carrying in my backpack at all times...
Anyway, nothing happened - 2 weeks passed by already- the birds were very well kept, cages not crouded and clean...
We ended up getting local wild herbal teas - the ones we knew. We bring them from all over the world and then my husband (whom I call Tea Barrista) mixes them in the amazing tisannes... While enjoing them months later, our memories of the places come alive...
On Fuli market we were told by our guide they were collected in the mountains... Also some local tea which we didn't try yet- were advised it has bitter taste but it looked very interesting-rolled in needle form shape... This all for the cost of pennies....

Easy 20 minute drive east of Yangshuo. Interesting old buildings amongst some of the new, down the narrow lane ways.
River scene is spoilt by the building of the new dock but there are plenty of other places to get those shots.
Enjoyed watching the fan makers and visiting Peng family gallery.

I visited Fuli on one of the days with the market. I got the boat to go across to the entrance of the village, very beautiful scenery on the way there and great spot for photographs around the old houses. The market was also fun to see.

We rented bikes and rode out to Fu Li from Yangshuo (about a 10km ride). The ride is very scenic, with many great photo opportunities. Townspeople were very friendly and willing to help point us in the right direction. We wanted to find the Peng Family Fan and Painting Factory, a family-owned Chinese paintings warehouse (the prices are much better than in Yangshuo, and the quality is excellent). This was a bit difficult to find (keep in mind that Fu Li does not boast such high numbers of English speakers as neighboring Yangshuo). Once we were able to locate the warehouse, we were amazed by the incredible hand-painted scrolls and fans. The daughter who was running the shop was able to look at a piece and tell us who in her family had painted it. We were able to purchase 18 pieces for just 1100RMB (be sure to negotiate). This outing was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

The local market is a trip to see- farmers come from the nearby villages to buy & sell goods and wares, as well as produce, livestock, meats & fish, and herbal medicines. Take a look at my pictures- they say more than words lol.
