Guangxi feels like something straight out of a fairy tale. Lush rice terraces, meandering rivers, breathtaking karst mountains, and remote minority villages make this a destination like no other. Yangshou is a mecca for domestic and international outdoor enthusiasts alike, who use it as a base camp for exploring the vibrant countryside surrounding this travel-friendly town. Since its rise to popularity as a backpacker haven in the 1980s, Yangshuo has remained one of China’s top tourism draws ever since. The surrounding Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region is less-known but equally spectacular and home to 11 different ethnic minorities and 16 beautiful rivers.
Guangxi offers something for everyone, be they foodies, thrill-seekers, budding anthropologists, or nature enthusiasts. There is something otherworldly about the magical waters of Yangshuo giving a oneness with the land that keeps us coming back to explore again and again. Cycling past limestone peaks on a dusty mountain trail, seeing our reflection in the mirror-like Li river, adventurously tucking into a plate of spicy local fish, or simply viewing the moon through our guesthouse window, this land of ten thousand peaks will cast a spell on you.
