Since Yangshuo is a mature place, this time our main purpose is to find something new around Yangshuo or having more fun in Yangshuo.
Driving from Yangshuo, it is about 1 hour driving to reach a scenic spot called-Lijiang Bay (Lijiangwan). This scenic area is very comprehensive, travelers can experience the boat cruise first to enjoy the beautiful scenery, the limestone hills and clean water with tranquil reflections. Then arrive at another part of the scenic area, it is a Karst cave, if you are first time to visit Karst cave, you can not miss it. Keep going ahead, there is a huge hill far away, pay attention to the cliff, you just find some murals painted on it, but it is completely crafted by nature, the natural formations somewhat resembling fairies, Chinese dragons, anyway, you can open your imagination to match the names. The big highlight in Lijiang Bay is Glass Bridge, although it is not so famous and amazing like the Glass Bridge in Zhangjiajie, the Glass Bridge in Lijiang Bay is the highest glass bridge in Guangxi, about 250 meters high and 500 meter long, travelers can climb up the mountain, then pass the glass bridge, another exciting activity waits for you. The smooth slide-way along the mountain is full of fun to try.
After Lijiang Bay, we are back to Yangshuo, on the way, there is a newly opened scenic spot, it is Ruyi Peak, this new spot is spectacular for the ropeway.
