Postcards from Yangshuo

Postcards from Yangshuo

Yangshuo is a small town in the southern province of Guangxi, China. It is a popular destination for many tourists because of the natural landscapes formed by karsts, mountains, and the Li River. I went there during the last Spring Festival (February 2013). Here I share with you a few Yangshuo pictures of what you can see during a cloudy day and at night. Click on each picture to enlarge.

One of the popular things to do in Yangshuo is taking a boat tour. As you can see in the picture above, there are many boats that can take people through the karsts.
