Day Twelve

Cycling around Yangshuo


With the predicted rain, we decided to take it easy and sleep in for once. After a delicious BLT sandwich as lunch, we packed our umbrellas and coats and made our way to the bike rental place to rent two mountain bikes for a trip through the surroundings of Yangshuo.

The trip started with an off-road path that was kind of on the map, taking us through valleys with little farms and no one else around. Eventually, we ended up on the main thoroughfare and a bridge where the bamboo rafts were docking.

Every once in a while, we were joined by other cyclists.

After an exhausting climb out of the valley back to Yangshuo we hit the town for some well-deserved dinner.
