Story #2: Xingping Ancient Town in Guilin (桂林兴坪古镇)

A famous Chinese saying goes "桂林山水甲天下,阳朔山水甲桂林". It means "the scenic mountains and rivers in Guilin is top of the world, and the scenic mountains and rivers in Yangshuo is the best in Guilin".

While I do agree with that saying, I feel that most of the beautiful scenery are actually in Xingping (兴坪) — which is also part of Yangshuo — not around the city of Yangshuo itself. Most of the scenic sights in Yangshuo are small and very touristy.
