How to Spend 1 Day in Yangshuo

How to Spend 1 Day in Yangshuo

Famed for its breathtaking scenery, Yangshuo and its surrounding countryside is home to dramatic limestone formations and the Li and Yulong Rivers, which offer plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation. Here’s how to make the most of one day in Yangshuo.

 

Morning: Mountains and Rivers

If you’ve only got one day, get an early start and join a tour of Xianggong Mountain, the summit of which offers panoramic views of the karst-dominated countryside. If possible, try to make it for sunrise, when fewer crowds are worth the early start. 

Spend the rest of the morning floating down a river on a bamboo raft, and see famous bridges such as the Yulong Bridge and Fuli Bridge. Alternatively, head to Xingping Ancient Town and take a motorized boat down the Li River, where you’ll see the landscape featured on the 20 Yuan note. It’s also possible to hike or bike along the riverbank instead.

 

Afternoon: Villages and Countryside

Head back to Yangshuo and spend some time walking along bustling West Street, the oldest and most famous street in town. With plenty of shops and restaurants, this is a great spot to pick up souvenirs and grab some lunch. 

Afterwards, head back out to the countryside to do your choice of hiking, biking, or rock climbing; a tour ensures your safety and means you won’t get lost on unfamiliar routes. Another highlight to consider visiting is the scenic Ten Mile Gallery, with attractions Moon Hill and Big Banyan Tree. If you’d prefer to relax, stay in town for a cooking, calligraphy, or Chinese language class.

 

Night: Local Culture

Devote the evening to sampling local favorites such as Guilin noodles, steamed Li River fish, or Yangshuo beer fish. End your evening with a performance of Impressions Sanjie Liu; directed by acclaimed director Zhang Yimou, who also directed the Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony, the show uses the Li River as its stage and the mountains as its backdrop. It’s a natural theater spectacle that you won’t soon forget, so secure a seat by booking your tickets in  advance.
