“Pedalling across the rice fields through Yangshuo’s soaring limestone peaks is often the top experience of travellers in China” (Lonely Planet, 2007 edition)

“Yangshuo is an incredibly beautiful place. The landscape is dotted with karst (eroded limestone) peaks and the Li River winds its way past. Yangshuo is your break from all the major cities in China. This is where you can experience some real China. Getting out into the countryside to see traditional rural life is easy…” (internet quote)

Yangshuo County is a county in Guilin area, Guangxi Province, Southern China. Its seat is located in Yangshuo Town. Surrounded by karst peaks and bordered on one side by the Li River it is easily accessible by bus or boat from nearby Guilin City.
