Among the many cultural attractions, one that stands at the top is the renowned Impression Liu Sanjie show on the Li River. Liu Sanjie had its premier in 2004 and is supposed to be the biggest natural stage in the world. Impression Liu Sanjie was created by Zhang Yimou, who also created and choreographed the opening ceremony for the 2008 Beijing Olympics and directed such famous Chinese movies as Raise the Red Lantern and Red Sorgum.

Apart from Liu Sanjie, we also recommend cormorant fishing, Yangshuo cooking school caligraphy and Tai Qi classes.

Yangshuo is an outdoor adventurer's paradise with wide ranging activities that are unique to the geography of the area. Starting in the 1990's Yangshuo was discovered by western rock climbers and has since become one of the premier climbing destinations in Asia. There are challenges for every level with hundreds of routes throughout the Yulong River Valley. You can find more on Yangshuo climbing in a new book by American climber Andrew Hadesh.

Yulong River bamboo rafting, caving, trail hiking and biking are among other outdoor favorites in Yangshuo.

While Yangshuo has endless acres of emerald green rice fields, Longsheng and Ping'An, just 90 minutes north of Guilin feature spectacular terraced fields on steep hills, known as the Dragon Back rice terraces. From the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat, the best way to visit is to get up early and take a taxi through Guilin, visit the terraces then fly out from Guilin airport in the evening. You can also spend the night in Ping'An village. Yangshuo Mountain Retreat reception can help you plan this trip to make the most of your Guilin Yangshuo tour.

Many of our guests have raved about the Li An Lodge in Long Sheng. It's more expensive than the nearby accommodation but our guests say it's a good value. If you require more information on Li An Lodge, you can read their reviews on TripAdvisor above.
