A great budget hostel in the countryside of Yangshuo with nice terraces and a bar overlooking the rice-fields, fruit trees and farmlands below with some huge karst mountain peaks towering up above. Very relaxing atmosphere, excellent food, friendly and funny staff and friendly informative owners. One is from Belgium and provided a full stock of Belgian Beers in the fridge! They also have a great travel guide which made it easy to decide what to do, see and expect. Lots of tours and tips. And just a short walk from the center along the Li-river, beautiful stroll. Definitely recommend it.
This charming hotel is a great place to stay when you visit Yangshuo. It is located in the country side with great views of the karst mountains. Friendly staff and great food.
I stayed in a small place (the minority cafe with a great cook but it may have changed hands by now) on Guihua road opposite a traditional medicine shop. It's cheaper and quieter than West Street (only minutes away) with a really great cake shop on the corner.
If walking up West Street towards the river turn left, over a bridge and it should be somewhere around there.
An oasis of calm for weary travellers in China!
Four Streets of hotels, bars, restaurants and budget travel agents.
An excellent, clean, air-conditioned room (with shower) cost me CNY 60 (GBP 4) per night. Beer is CNY 6 a pint! Internet use is free all over town in bars and hotels.
You can get an English breakfast and yes a sandwich. I was caught staring at one for too long because I have been away for a long time. I just about got away with it as the shopkeeper spoke good English.
You can also revamp your traveller's wardrobe as the shops offer clothes in Western sizes and most people speak good English here.
Come here by tourist boat (CNY 400) or bus (CNY 20.) Stay here and not Guilin as it is much cheaper (see above.)
