Yangshuo, Guilin, Guangxi, China


I looked at the photos from our trip to Guilin and realized that there was something left unsaid from this trip.
It needs to be told.
For those who have not read my notes about the trip to the mountains of Guilin, all links to previous posts will be given at the end of the article.

The town of Yangshuo, where we stayed, is small, on the banks of the river.
I have never shown you its streets and houses.
I decided that, in this short post, I would just show you some houses and some streets.

At the entrance to the city, when the first houses are already visible, a futuristic picture of houses arises against the backdrop of these hilly mountains.
The picture is so unusual that this landscape is very impressive.
It seems that the houses just poked around in empty places among the mountains.

Since this city is a tourist city, there are a lot of private small hotels.
You can see the hotel in the first photo in this post.

But there are also very narrow streets where the windows of one house look into the windows of the neighboring house.

And so, it’s quite pleasant to walk along the central street, where they sell many different souvenirs and products for tourists.

In fact, the city lives on a large flow of tourists.
During the pandemic, such towns lived very poorly.

You see, an old woman sells fruits for tourists.
Look, every door is some kind of shop, or a travel agency, or a hotel, or a motorbike rental.

But this poster is a tourist map, which shows absolutely all the tourist places where you can go.
We, in fact, used it to choose where we would go and how long it would take.
