taking the bamboo boat to Yangshuo

Yesterday we came back to Guilin after a few days in Yangshuo. Yangshuo is one of the most popular destinations for Chinese tourists, so there is lots of  touristical infrastructure and touts are just about everywhere. One of the first things our host Bruno tought us was „bu jau“, which means „don’t want“ and became our most frequently used phrase, especially in the city center.

Like many other tourists we got there by bamboo boat from Guilin – rather a raft made of some 7 big bamboo trunks with two little benches on it. The 2-hour ride down the Li river was relaxing and very scenic. We got off in Xingping, which is a little riverside town and also the place printed on the 20 Yuan note. From there we took a bus to Yangshuo.
