We came to Huangyao on a day trip from Guilin and very much enjoyed its narrow streets, very old buildings, the arched, stone bridges, as well as the myriad of little shops. Lots of tourists, mostly Chinese, but if you go on the side streets...More

Real ancient town, 3 hours away from Guilin by bus. It looks poor but real ancient, especially early morning or later afternoon. Just like Yangshuo West Street 20 years ago. The people are friendly. Visit in low season would be perfect.
