The scenic location and opportunities for walking amongst the beautiful Karst scenery make the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat a good choice for those who really want to get away from it all.
Li River Resort
This family-run hotel is situated a short distance out of Yangshuo on the river road, surrounded by karst peaks on all sides. Rooms here are spacious and sunny, with decor that features natural materials like wood and stone and generously sized windows that offer views of either the mountains or the river. The hotel restaurant serves both Chinese and Western dishes for all three meals.
The hotel’s setting is ideal for guests to explore the scenic countryside or relax and enjoy the swimming pool. It is a ten-minute drive or a 30-minute walk along a riverside path to get back in to town. This gives you the best of both worlds — close enough to town to enjoy its facilities, without being subject to the noise from the bars in the evenings.

Experience the sublime local scenery on a leisurely bike ride to the Yulong River area. The villages here are still relatively untouched by tourism, and visitors are often greeted by friendly villagers working in the paddy fields.
Guests are driven to the Yulong River to board a bamboo raft. This is extremely relaxing and offers superb views and photographic opportunities.
