Ranking 9th in all of China as the most popular destination, Yangshuo is undoubtedly the most quaint, picturesque, and marvelous county in Guilin. Located alongside the Li River, this blissful heaven is surrounded by beautiful scenery and sky-high mountains that are perfect for both adventure and relaxation.
1. Rock Climbing
For adventure enthusiasts out there, what better way to explore the mountains than to actually climb them? Since limestone peaks are suitable for all experience levels, beginners can join in on the fun as well! There are a number of rock-climbing companies in Yangshuo that can set you up with all the necessary safety equipment. However, it would be recommended to be prepared with your adventure wear! Purchase something that is comfy and breathable like tracksuits, co-ord set, joggers, or sweatshirts (you can try searching for men’s and womens tracksuits online to find affordable clothing stores like Gym King). Anyway, once you are ready with the outfit and safety equipment, you can enjoy the thrill!
2. Explore West Street
West Street is Yangshuo’s oldest street, dating back 1,400 years. It is situated right in the heart of Yangshuo and is a tourist favourite. Here, visitors can get a glimpse into ancient Chinese civilization and stroll amongst the quaint shops and restaurants. Calm and quiet in the morning but vivacious and lively in the evening, West Street guarantees you diversity and is definitely worth a visit.
3. River Rafting
Another way of truly indulging in the landscape is rafting down the Yulong River, a peaceful river with not a lot of boat traffic. The trip usually takes around 45 minutes and during the warmer months, you can engage in friendly water fights with fellow rafters!
