Yangshuo is a small village located just 65 kilometers far from Guilin that can be reached by bus or by boat. In the last years it is getting more and more crowded and is changing aspect, loosing unfortunately its peaceful and sleepy atmosphere since new hotels and tourist facilities are being built. The main street, named Xi Jie or West street, is flanked by shops, restaurants and hotels. Still, as it happens in Guilin, you just need to walk a short distance from the city center to feel the real soul of this magic place: narrow streets flanking the rills, green lands dotted by impressive hills, water buffalo refreshing into the water, farmers working in the fields and many more unforgettable views. Yulong river is a tributary of Li river that flows in the countryside surrounding Yangshuo. The best way to explore this area is walking or cycling. The landscape is various: the narrow and dusty road runs among the fields, flanks Yulong river and passes near by an enchanting landscape dominated by odd green hills with original names such as Green Lotus peak, Snow Lion hill and Moon hill. Here there photos taken during a hike in the countryside where there are hamlets with friendly people who work in the fields.
