Yangshuo Activities

Yangshuo is a small town in Guilin, Guangxi Province, China, and the seat of Yangshuo County. Surrounded by karst peaks and bordered on one side by the Li River (漓江) it is easily accessible by bus or by boat from nearby Guilin. Over the years, it has become popular with foreign backpackers.

The town borders the Li river on one side, and is situated on a small plain between a number of karst peaks. Two main roads run away from the water and form the central part of the town, Chinese Street (Dei Chui Lu) and West Street (西街, xi jie). Most foreign-oriented businesses, such as hostels, hotels, rock climbing companies, restaurants and entertainment venues, are situated on West Street or the pedestrian only Xian Qian Street which runs between Chinese and West Street.

Visitors to Yangshuo can swim in the Li river or the cleaner Yu Long 遇龙河 (Dragon River), climb one of the many nearby karst peaks or hire a bicycle for a cycling trip through the karst scenery. Additionally, there is a butterfly cave near the town and a number of cave systems. Yangshuo is also China’s foremost venue for rock climbing, with around 300 bolted routes and several companies offering guiding and equipment hire. With mountain biking and kayaking becoming more popular, Yangshuo is becoming an adventure sports centre as well as a stop on the traveller's trail.

Impression Sanjie Liu
Impression’ is like nothing else you have seen before.  This show is actually played out on the waters of lower Li River.  With lights and effects that cover everything your eye sees from your seat on the bank, ‘Impression’ puts a show on every night that promises to be just spectacular.  There are many different shows such as ‘Red Impression’, ‘Green Impression’ and ‘Sanjie Liu’.  Sunset clouds, cooking smoke, the shepherd boy, women washing and river rafts.  All of this combined by one of China’s most celebrated directors, helps tell the many stories of life along the river.  Tickets cost between 188-688 Yuan depending who you buy them from so haggle the price.
