This old town is in a ridiculously inaccessible location on a sort of pensinsula surrounded by meanders of the Yong River. It is about 3 km from a freeway, as the crow flies, but you can't get there from there. I am amazed that our driver even managed to find it. It seemed to be about 40 km driving around... More

It was a unique experience but not my type because in reality it is just old village to see. Nothing special about this.

Very quiet, a small town where residents are very simple, suitable for meditation. But there is no tourist in 6-7Pm, best to come back on the same day. Handicraft there is special and distinctive. The first feeling when I came to the ancient town is that it doesn’t like a tourist attraction, but a natural country in my childhood memories.... More

This town is approximately 200 years old. Some things in China are 2000 years old. This was an amusing day out from Nanning, but I wouldn't recommend it. Rough roads, lots of flies. Lots of better things to do. They are renovating most of the town. Time better spent elsewhere. In my opinion.

Expect to see something old like Hutong BUT most of the villagers have already tore down the old buildings and were constructing new ones. Thank goodness we took a cab for 17 yuan and catch a public transport for 17 yuan to bring us there. Else we will be wasting money if we have booked a transport for 500 yuan... More

Honestly there's not much here, but if you're in Nanning for a few days and looking for someplace to ride a bike or motorcycle, the ride to Yangmei is a good one, and will take you on a tour of China's backcountry. It's only an hour away, so get here, sit by the river, have some of the fried river... More

A great place to see how people lived in ancient China. Although some parts have been modernized there is still an old feeling to the town. Excellent food cooked traditionally and a huge amount of locally and traditionally prepared products. A great day trip.

Looking for the bus to travel to Yangmei was easy as it is near to the Railway Station. But the bus travels at odd times and we had to wait about a hour before it takes off. At first the bus ride was acceptable but as soon as it enters the smaller road leading to the villages enroute to Yangmei,... More

The town was worth seeing as I am a history buff but the trip out takes about 2 hours. Very bumpy road in most parts and my wife had motion sickness.
