One of the few places where the average visitor can come face to face with how the average Chinese lives, Yangshuo is an unashamed backpacker centre just off the Li river. Not unlike the hippie trail towns of Thailand - and just as cheap - from here you can cycle or trek into landscapes so incredible you'll think you're just imagining them. Steep rockfaces jut vertically from the paddies, looking for all the world like furry green sandcastles on a watery beach.
