This has lost its authentic charm. It's now become a tourist place selling bits and pieces. Can get food here and souvenirs. The street sellers have delicious fruits. Can also start the hike from here. It's nice enough here. Hideous toilets

Nice OK place at end of boat trips on Youlong river (very crowded). Interesting scenery on non-rainy day. Village itself crowded, full with Chinese tourists and people trying to sell stuff.

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

Unlike Yangshuo, often titled a "village" with its 600.000 inhabitants, Xingping is an actual village in the Western sense. Very quiet and laid back, and apart from the thousands of tour boats along the river, very few tourists. Main Highlight is of course the viewing...More
