Enchanting Beauty in Yangshuo, China

From Guilin we took the river cruise to Yangshuo – a town in the heart of some seriously stunning scenery. In Yangshuo, the town itself doesn’t offer much to do. There are lots of tourist stalls and shops, but the real appeal is the surrounding area so during the days, we set about exploring as much of the area as we could. There is the moon cave that look impressive from afar or the bamboo rafting down the river, and we might have done these if we have stayed longer. There’s also a daily night show, which features a light show and a dance display from the director of the Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony. It’s also the only way to see cormorant fishing displays. But by far, the best ways to experience the Yangshuo are via bicycle or motorbike.  These can be hired from almost everywhere.  Even if you’re not…
