The beauty of Yangshuo
The legendary beauty of Yangshuo is often extolled in classic Chinese poetry and immortalised in traditional scroll paintings. A country under the jurisdiction of Guilin in southern China, Yangshuo conjures up images of emerald green rice fields and dramatic limestone mountains peaking out of the mist and into the sky. The myriad of winding rivers, exotic caves and charming temples have long drawn tourists to this beautiful retreat.
Pedal across rice fields in Li Valley and arrive at the heart of the stunning karst towers. Besides pinnacles, this limestone also manifests itself in dramatic caves, underground rivers and hillocks, creating a surreal backdrop of utter tranquillity. Cruise along the Li River on a bamboo raft and watch fishermen on small boats work their nets, sample specialty rice cakes from West Street or try your hand at the world class rock-climbing sites.
