Where to go on a weekend from Guangzhou?

Where to go on a weekend from Guangzhou?

Guangzhou is a thriving metropolis known throughout the world for its attractions. But if you have already managed to visit all at least some interesting places in Guangzhou and want to change the scenery, then I will offer you several options for an unforgettable weekend.

1.The Painted Town of Yangshuo

Yangshuo is a small town near Guilin, very popular with tourists from all over the world. It is surrounded on all sides by majestic karst mountains, winding rivers and amazingly beautiful landscapes. If you are tired of the hustle and bustle of city life and want to feel the freshness of pure natural air, relax your body and soul, then welcome to Yansho!

The easiest and cheapest way to get from Guangzhou to Yangshuo is by bus, on the way you will spend about 6-8 hours. The bus schedule and ticket prices can be viewed on this site:

Yangshuo is one solid sight, it's almost impossible to see all the splendor of nature in a few days, but to visit the most significant places - the task is quite feasible. There are several popular areas where you can see the karst landscape in all its glory.

• Yangdi-Xingping District

This section along the Li River is the most famous and popular. Many bizarre peaks with beautiful shores overgrown with dense thickets of bamboo create breathtaking pictures. Here you will see the Nine Horseshoe Hill, it got its name from the unusual semicircular stone formations that resemble prints of wild horses.

You can get to Yandi Xiping area by minibus from Yangshuo Bus Station in just an hour. But in order to see the most beautiful landscapes, you will have to rent a boat or raft. There is a little secret: usually all tourists go to Xingping village, and then raft down the river to Yangdi village, but if you want to save money, then you need to do the opposite - immediately go to Yandi, here renting a raft will cost less , and there are fewer tourists. The fare from Yangshuo to Yandi is ¥ 10.

Be careful, speculators in Yangshuo assure tourists that the cost of rafting on a raft from Xiping will be only ¥ 88, while the real price is ¥ 150. If you prefer unhurried walks, there is a 24 km long hiking trail along the Li River.
