Xingping Town is a famous ancient city only 15.9km away from Yangshuo. According to most it only takes 1hr by bus to travel from Yangshou to Xingping town. Well it’s possible just not during Chinese main festival seasons. Being stuck in traffic and standing in long lines is definitely not something you’d love to experience when having only a few days for traveling. The view however is worth the wait. Upon arrival one can already see the beautiful views from the top deck while waiting for a fairy to arrive. One can fully embrace the view while taking a fairy ride down the river or a hike up the famous hiking trail. Make sure to take your 20¥ note with for that amazing background picture of the river.
