A twenty hour train seperates Guilin and Yangshuo from Shanghai and they are worlds apart in other ways.
Although Yangshuo is quite touristy its tiny compared to shanghai.
it has great scenery good cheap food and an excellent hostel outside town, (Trippers Carpe Diem).
i spent four nights there and could have spent longer.
two days of biking around the Karsts , a swim in a river , (no monkeys though danni, just water buffalo) , hot humid but sunny weather, toke me back to Asia and Thailand of four years ago 😊
Shanghai has the bund and the Bazaar, terrible weather and the worst air quality. felt ill there if the air doesnt get you the food will ! (some of it was good but didnt stay inside me long) !
should have only stayed a couple of days and gone to Suzhou but the weather would have been shite there too which kinda knocks the edge off gardens and temples.
Two days is enough for Shanghai.
Yangshuo one Shanghai nil !
