Yangshuo, China – one of the most beautiful places on earth

We fell in love the first second we set eyes on this amazing place. We will be back again shortly and are thinking about trying to spend a couple of weeks here at the end of the year. Welcome to Yangshou, China. Be warned you might just hop on a plane and join us.

We took a plane from Guangzhou, China to the Guilin, China. It was a short 50 minute plane ride and we paid $60.00 per ticket.

After arriving at the Guilin airport we hoped in a taxi for an hour ride to our hotel in Yangshuo. We had a great time at The Giggling Tree and recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonable hotel with friendly staff and amazing food.

After we all got settled in (we brought our nanny and her 18 year old daughter along for the ride) we went on the most amazing bike ride ever! All I can say is breathe taking.

Zeek’s in heaven. He had such an amazing time. p.s. I think this might be his real home town.

Hmmm can you say beautiful!

Zeek, Lupita and Lilly decided to take one of the dirt roads.

Just another day!

Zeek and Lupita enjoying the sun!

Onn (our nanny) and Abe. He hated the helmet, but his crazy mother insisted on it. He was not very happy about it at all. I figure it will give him something to complain about when he is older.

We stopped to take a look at the Li River. You can rent a bamboo raft and float down the river. It takes roughly 1.5 hours and is $22.00 for two people.

We had the most amazing time. Nothing could have gone better other than of course being able to stay longer. We hope to be back very soon.
