Yangshuo / Guilin

Nestled 70km south of Guilin on the Li River, in the thick of China's most spectacular karst scenery, YANGSHUO, meaning Bright Moon, has become a rowdy draw for domestic tourists, with the majority of its bars, restaurants and shops catering to their tastes. It remains, however, an easy place to spend a few days: hills surround everything, village lanes swarm with activity, and there are restaurants and accommodation everywhere. You can rent a bike and spend a day zipping between hamlets, take a cruise along the Li River, or hike around or go rock climbing on nearby peaks, or study cooking or martial arts.
Yangshuo has few formal attractions but there's plenty to explore.
