After spending Monday travelling, we found out that the best way to get to Guilin would be by sleeper bus. Once in Guilin early Tuesday morning we fetched a cab to Yangshou, our last destination before Hong Kong. Yangshou is a small town, at least the pedestrian touristy part of it. Surrounded by tall mountain peaks and Li River, this place had both charm, beautiful scenery and a pleasant level of comfort. Although Chinese food has been delicious, we didn´t mind the pizza parlors and vanilla iced lattes. We planned to stay here for a week, so that we could relax, and have time to discover Yangshou and it´s surroundings.

The days have been spent walking around, eating great food, shopping and so on. It was nice to take things easy knowing that we had time to do the things we wanted without hassle. We´ve cycled around, made a couple of day trips to Yulong River and cooled off swimming by a small waterfall. Also, we took a day trip to Li Jiang river for rafting. It was the first time for both of us, and what a thrilling ride!  All in all, Yangshou is a great place to visit, as it offers jaw dropping scenery and a lot of fun things to do.
