Yangshuo
Yangshuo, located in northeastern par of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, lies south of Guilin and is under the jurisdiction of the city of Guilin. Yangshuo County covers an area of 1,428 square km and has 20,000 hectares of land used for agricultural cultivation. It has a population about 300,000, making up of different ethnic groups such as Han, Zhuang, Yao, Hui, etc. The weather in Yangshuo is subtropical, with sufficient rainfall, sunlight, and heat around the whole year.

Big Banyan Tree
At the village of Gaotian to the south of the town of Yangshuo, where the most typical pastoral scenery is to be found, there is a big banyan tree over 1000 years old. One scene of the film "Ms. Liu San Jie" was photographed here.
The banyan tree is now 17 meters high, 7.1 meters around the trunk, and covers an area of 1000 square meters. When we look closely we see that it has beautifully twisted roots and gnarled branches. Its crown is round with an exuberant growth of branches and leaves. There is a huge branch stretching out straight starting just 1 meter above the ground. Enduring wind and rain for thousands of years, it is surprising that this branch has not been harmed. The Tall Banyan is on the west bank of the Jinbao River. There is an ancient ferry crossing under the tree called "Rongyin Gudu". Across the river, rocks of varying sizes, fascinating mountains and wonderful caves,make this area a must see.
Moon Hill

One kilometer to the south of the Big Banyan Tree, there lies the Moon Hill. On the upper part of the hill, there is a round through cave which looks very much like the moon when it is against the blue sky.

The cave is about 50 meters in height and width and is shaped like an archway.
On a sunny day, blue sky and white clouds can be seen through the cave and on cloudy and rainy days, the "moon" is deep in mist. Viewed from different places, the moon takes on different shapes, sometimes full moon, sometimes half-moon and sometimes crescent, forming a marvelous spectacle in Yangshuo. A series of caves have been opened up not far from Moon Hill: the Black Buddha Cave, New Water Caves and Dragon Cave. If you head out to Moon Hill, you will undoubtedly be intercepted and invited to visit these other caves. Tthe villages people will always be pleased to see you and will give you a great welcome.

Yulong River
The "Meet the Dragon" or Yulong River, which begins in Zouzai Village, is the largest tributary running into the Li Rive. The excellent composition of water, ancient bridges and mountains along this waterway is one of the favorite choices of photographers and artists coming to the area. For those who are looking for a fabulous hike, start at Baisha's Yulong Bridge and stay on the path down river to Gao Tian. You'll pass six unforgettable ancient bridges during the 5-hour walk.
Fuli Town & Donglang Hill
