Yangshuo is located in the south of China, in Guangxi province. Going to Yangshuo has been on the tourist itinerary for a long time, and for a lot of people it is one of the main reasons to come to China. The surrounding landscape has inspired generations of great Chinese painters and poets. The biggest city near Yangshuo is Guilin. Along the whole road from there to Yangshuo the fields are dotted with karst-mountains. Some estimates count as much as 70.000 peaks. It is also possible to get to Yangshuo on a cruiseboat down the Li-river.
The Yulong river is much smaller and the only boats you will see there are the bamboo rafts which are powered by local farmers. When you stay or travel in China for a while, sometimes you really need to take a rest and relax. The best way to do this is to get a bicycle, take a walk or get on a raft and enjoy the natural beauty near the Giggling Tree. When you are lucky you will meet an old fisherman working on his gear, see the duckman guiding his flock around town, or a young lady busy cutting the sugarcane, while her aunt walks the buffalo…. That is how it was in the old days, and so it still is today. When you are staying in the Giggling Tree you are in the middle of it all.
