Daxu Town

Perching on the northern bank of Li River, the ancient town keeps in its antique style from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). A flagging street, lined with old residences, shops and stalls, runs two kilometers along the river bank through the town. Some well-preserved residences hidden behind the street door may give you surprises you when you occasionally explore further into a shop. These are quarters for businessmen in the past times. Have a try on various dumping snacks on the stalls or peddle cars along the street. Some will surprise you with both its taste and cheap price. People in the town are very kind to tourists. Further to south, there is a single-arched bridge in the town named Longevity Bridge.

The town is really a sight off-the-beaten track. Opposite the town on the other side of the river, a millstone-like rock with the running waters creates the scene of Grinding Grain.

Located to the southwest of Guilin, on shore of the tourist-beaten Li River. Daxu is a time-honored town with well preserved traditional Chinese architecture and shiny stone-paved streets. First built in the Qin Dynasty, over 2,000 years ago, Daxu Town began to flourish during the Ming Dynasty when it became the commercial center of the area.
