Main Scenic Spots in Xingping Ancient Town

Xingping Old Street

The historic sites here can be found in Xingping Old Street and Fishing Village about 2 km from the town. Xingping Old Street is a one-kilometer long stone street lined with old brick buildings and assembly halls like those of many different provinces. The old banyan tree, which needs as many as eight people's outstretched arms to encircle it, and Guandi (General Guan Yu) Temple which was built in the Qing Dynasty both tell the long history of the town.

Fishing Village

When the former US president Bill Clinton and his wife visited here, they highly praised the village and were deeply attracted by the residences. This old village is a great place to go and see the way that local people used to live their lives before their town became world famous. Rich in culture and tradition, you can see all that Yangshuo used to be. Grandparents taking care of the kids, mothers washing in the river and fathers maintaining the town or working in the fields. 4 kilometers from the center of town, you feel like you have actually stepped back about 100 years in time.
