Where I stayed
There is a dirt track which leads to the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat which can be very dusty and bumpy at times, but WE LOVE IT! It adds to the whole atmosphere, far away from everything and an authentic rural China experience.
Daily we see water buffaloes, farmers watering their paddy fields. In nearby villages just across the river the houses are all built from mud bricks and have old tile roofs.
Chinese decorate their doors every February when its Chinese New Year
The paddy fields, the river and the thousands of karst formations make this place feel like another world. The farmers and young kids shout "hello" and smile from one ear to the other....(and we mean SHOUT because everything is a little bit louder in China as we are used to at home)
Look at this beautiful countryside pics of rural China in the Yu Long River Valley...
