Early in the morning, I went for a stroll in Yangshuo.
A lot of weird art here:
For those who don’t like flowers, florists now sell teddy bear bouquets.
Foreigners waiting for starbucks to open.
Breakfast today was egg custard tarts…
And a yakult-like drink that made its way down the drain.
On the way to the bus for Xingping..
I need a dog as well trained as this one.
Xingping Ancient town:
Moscow nights was playing as I strolled down the path.
After a long and painful queue…
I made it on the boat to Xingping fishing village ⛵
(I was the only teddy bear here, which was a little disconcerting)
The li river was a little underwhelming compared to other places I’ve been to in China.
This is meant to be the nicest part of the river.
It could also be that it wasn’t as nice because of the weather. The scenery is nicely portrayed on the 20 yuan banknote:
After taking a break at the hotel, I went to West street in search of food:
First stop was Roujiamo:
I bought a jar of chilli paste on the way.
Next was spicy roasted potatoes:
If you cross the bridge, you see a show being played right by West street, hidden by water sprinklers and bright lights.
I then discovered another food market with some more adventurous flavours:
Unfortunately, I was full at that point.
