      • Yangshuo has gained prominence in China's tourism through the Lonely Planet guidebooks to China. (See Lonely Planet's current description of Yangshou here). It is an international town (not really a city), nestled in one of the most dramatic landscapes in China (photos to the left) with many village-based bed and breakfast establishiments (bottom photo).
      • The Guilin Tourism College is located between Yangshuo and the larger city of Guilin.
