We arrived today (2017/07/24) and found out there is no atm working for us. Because of the floods (few week ago) there is only one atm working according to our hostel. The one working is the Bank of China atm. This one doesn't work for...More

The only reason we went to Xingping is because the section of the Li River between Yangdi and Xingping is beautiful. We enjoyed the ride on the small boat. As soon as we got off the boat, we were approached by people who put a...More

The island area where the last few living fishermen live is worth a visit. There are a handful of fishermen who are in their 70s and 80s who live on the island on the Li River in Xingping. They will allow you to photograph them...More

The village is ok, a slice of rural life that's for sure, but not as idylic as you might imagine! Lots of people trying to sell you stuff but some nice streets. The hike isn't really great either, ok views at the end. The views...More

It was wonderful to be there. We went to Xingping village to take one boat tour, but in the end we decided to walk beside the river. We think it was a good idea because by the time we went (around 12pm) the river was...More

The hike from Xingping to the village is quite nice. Peaceful, beautiful landscape and the route is well explained by the "Old Place" Hostel. The village itself is rather average and it costs quite a bit to get back to Xingping by bamboo boat if...More

I thought much of the classical Chinese buildings were preserved in this town. Instead, many of them were only built in recent years and following the old style. You would expect shops everywhere, selling souvenirs where you can get in other places.

Access is only available on an organised boat ride from Xinping. The boat ride is nice. The village itself is very traditional and interesting but almost deserted. Most of the inhabitants have left.
