The 5 of us went on a market day. We went to the Yangshuo bus station and ended up taking a whole van / mini-bus for RMB30. On the return trip, we shared with 9 other people and paid RMB3 each.
We were dropped off along the main road where it looked quite new and ordinary. Had to walk several hundred metres towards the river to get to the "ancient town". There was a temple by the river dedicated to Ma Tzu, goddess of the sea. Next to it was a surprisingly modern toilet with auto-sensor flush and taps! Guess they expect tourists who mostly arrive by boat. Only 1 main street in the old town with shops selling antiques, paintings, fans and other souvenirs for tourists. However, the walk to it and back was interesting too and provided many photo opportunities.
We dropped by the market and bought some fruits - oranges and pomegranates. The latter were juicy and quite sweet.
