Photos of Yangshuo, Guilin – Part II

Here are more photos of the trip with very brief note. I am here in Shanghai. Immediately after I get off airplane, I headed to Shangri-la for a meeting, and there are two meetings near the Pudong Shangri-la and Starbucks tomorrow. I already noticed the big difference – I feel excited about the upcoming meetings – that is the benefit of a vacation.

Below: the lobby of Yangshuo Youth Hostel. We reserved this hotel but later cancelled it. It turned out to be a nice and quiet hotel.

    That is indeed a grat-looking youth hostel — and the cave is really amazing! Would you have preferred to see it without all the artificial colored lighting, or did that add something desirable to the experience?

    Hmmm… I am not sure. I never saw a tourist place with a cave without the artificial colored lighting. I would say, I still prefer it, since it is just like many of the things people make out of stones – stone itself is just stone, but people carve different shapes out of it, so we do with the tree roots – to create some nice thing and place it into the room. The stone will look very differently without the color.

    I also like a quiet stone without any light – that is even better, but it is the beautify of mysteriousness.

    Hi, I am planning my trip to Guilin next week, can you please help me with the Yangshuo Youth Hostel’s address and telephone number? English or Chinese, I can read both. Your blog has been for some time now a constant useful source of information for me, actually it was my window to China before I got here. thank you!
