YANGSHUO

Yangshuo is a small town (by Chinese standards) surrounded by karst mountains and beautiful scenery near Guilin. It has been a popular backpacker destination since the 1980s and the surrounding area has excellent rock climbing opportunities which attract another large group of tourists, As a result, it has seen much development and now gets many tour groups, mostly but by no means all Chinese. There is also a community of resident foreigners.


Yangshuo Town is the county seat for Yangshuo County; county population is about 300,000 with most of them in the town. This article concentrates on the town but also covers some expeditions into the countryside.
