Main attractions

yangshuo west street

When traveling in Yangshuo, we must visit the world-famous West Street, because it is full of exotic atmosphere. The owners of the shops in the street are all honest Yangshuo people. They are very enthusiastic and do not deceive the students. For the convenience of foreigners, their signboards are written in foreign languages. More than one hundred stalls specializing in tourist goods are arranged word by word, selling various commodities such as ethnic costumes, handicrafts, porcelain, antiques and so on. Visitors from home and abroad continue to stream, either shopping or viewing. The recipes of street restaurants are both Chinese and Western. Many foreigners sit around drinking beer, eating delicacies and cooking spoons in person when they are interested. This makes West Street a veritable Westerner Street, which adds a beautiful scenery to Yangshuo Town. Tourists here can enjoy the quiet environment and unique leisure time of the town, experience the romantic atmosphere and foreign customs. It is also very convenient to go shopping in the West Street, because the east end of the street is the cruise ship wharf along the Lijiang River. As soon as the tourists have finished swimming in the Lijiang River, they will enter the West Street directly.

Moon Hill

Moon Mountain is a wonder in Yangshuo. It is near Fenglou Village, Gaotian Township. It is over 380 meters high. Because there is a big hole through the top of the mountain, like a bright moon, high and bright, so people call it Mingyue Peak, commonly known as Moon Mountain. Visitors can follow an 800-level climbing Road to the Moon Cave. This month, the cave is surprisingly large, 50 meters in height and 50 meters in width, while the mountain walls are only a few meters thick. The two walls of the cave are flat like walls, but the top of the cave is covered with stalactites in different shapes. Two of them are very similar to Wu Gang and Jade Rabbit in the Moon Palace. On sunny days, visitors can see blue sky and white clouds through the moon cave, like a round mirror hanging on a hilltop. Because there is a circular hill on the north side of the Moon Cave, visitors can see different scenes of the full moon, the half moon and the eyebrow moon from different angles by taking the "Moon Viewing Road" in the south of the mountain. Xu Tinghao of the Qing Dynasty called this scene "the peak of the moon hanging". He wrote poems: "The top of the peaks is shining in the mirror, but the sky is bright on the eve of the day. Ever since the cliff collapsed in the corner, the soul has remained unchanged. There is no gap between the mountains and the moon, and the moon rises and the moon shines. Never wear the only mirror for ever, and you will travel widely and coldly with your monarch.
