Perched on the banks of the gently flowing Li River, Yangshuo is famed for its remarkable limestone landscape of karsts, caves and pinnacles. Beloved by painters and poets across the ages, this picturesque county is dotted with Zhuang villages, farms and paddy fields, offering a glimpse into ancient traditional rural life.
Carved by the Li River, Yangshuo County’s limestone karsts and peaks are one of China’s most iconic natural spectacles. Cruise along the river, watching as water buffalo pull traditional carts through the paddy fields and farmers tend their crops. Visit the restaurants of West Street for some local culinary delicacies or take in the famous sound and light show, Impression Liu Sanjie, as it illuminates the karsts after sunset.
