Yangshuo Xingping This Old Place International Youth Hostel
Just 27 km outside of tourist hot-spot Yangshuo, you will find the 'This Old Place Int'l Youth Hostel', a very unique youth hostel. We live in a small town named Xingping which is 1740 years old. It has the most beautiful riverview of the whole Li-river area. For this reason the riverside of Xingping is printed on the back of the Chinese 20 yuan note. Our hostel is located just 50 meters away from Xingping port. So from some rooms' balcony you can see the amazing riverview.
Many travelers/expats in China are delighted to come and stay at the most beautiful riverside. Our cooks can make the original Italian wood-fired pizza. In the evening the common area is a perfect place to enjoy great dinners and to meet other travelers. You can also watch movies, read and exchange books, play pool and use the internet.
The best way to explore the area is when you go slow, so either go hiking, cycling or take a bamboo raft. Your adventure begins the minute your step out of the 'This Old Place Int'l Youth Hostel'.Give yourself a break, finally get some rest on the Chinese countryside. While traveling China you probably already saw or will see many big big cities. Now this rural setting is a big opportunity for a change!
