If you are in Yangshuo and have some spare time you HAVE to go to Xingping! Honestly! You will not regret it. The town is beautiful and an extremely traditional old Chinese village.
Minibuses from Yangshuo can take you into Xingping for ¥7.50 and take roughly 45 minutes. These buses leave from the main bus terminal in Yangshuo up until 6PM.
Xingping should be written on a place card on the front of the bus. If it’s not or you can’t read it, just go up to the minibus drivers and say “Xingping?”.
Tip: Climb up the mountain for the sunset. Please be aware though that the last bus is at around 6PM, and so when you arrive in Xingping you will get approached by lots of touts. Ask them for a taxi back to Yangshuo for a later time. Ask your hotel to write down in Chinese exactly what you need and at what time. If you don’t want to do this then you can just stay in a YHA Hostel for a night.
