    In Shops and On side of the road: Pipes

    by Sobe-A-Rush Written Apr 30, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are looking for pipes then Yanghuo has many of them, you can also buy really old pipes and with cool designs on them. They have both big and small ones, I paid 5rmb for the small one and the big one i wanted was 80rmb after 20 minutes of bargaining.

    You can find the pipes in some of the shops on west street and around and aswell on the sidewalks you will see people with them on a blanket or something.

    What to pay: 20rmb max for the smaller ones and up to a 100 for the big ones i would say.

    Inside the wet market - lots of fresh vegetables
    3 more images

    This is Yangshuo's wet market - a place where all the sundries, vegetables, fish, pork and fruits are sold. . We went into this market in the later part of the day and still see that a lot of people are busy selling and buying. There were also some small stalls inside the market where they sell small dumplings, roasted pork, chicken and ducks. We bought some small dumplings ("pau") for our tea break. They were really steamy hot and delicious and cheap. We paid 1yuan for 3 small dumplings.

    See more pics attached on this market

    West Street: Main Street

    by solopes Updated Dec 31, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Yangshuo - China

    Each square centimeter seems disputed by shops, restaurants, and street vendors in West street.

    The name was given by the cafes and restaurants selling western food, but everything is quite Chinese, even those "western" establishments.

    Western food is just a detail in a street market that sells everything from early in the morning untill late in the night.

    Embroidery Balls Thrown as a Token of Love

    by yipsufen Updated May 2, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Embroidery Ball as a token of love

    What to buy: The most populous minority people in Guangxi is Zhuang people. Females are skilled to make embroidery balls (Xiu Qiu) and trained to throw them at very young age. After the age of majority, they will have their chance of a lifetime to throw this ball to the guy that she likes. The guy who is lucky and catches the ball will be her man.

    This traditional event is celebrated every year and lasted until now. Young females are very good at throwing embroidery balls so that she will not miss her "target".

    What to pay: Each ball costs about RMB1 to RMB3, depending on the size, embroidery and material. As for material, you can have velvet or silk. Females go get it for your loved ones or for decorative piece.

    Mysterious Handicraft

    by yipsufen Updated May 2, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Colourful painted handicrafts hanging on wall

    What to buy: Not sure what type of handicraft is this, traditional or modern one. I saw it in almost everywhere of Yangshuo. The motifs are weird and colourful like carrying some implied messages. They are made of wood and can be hung on wall.

    I believe it's a native artwork by the Zhuang minority people.

    Yangshuo Street Market

    West Street is where the tourists go shopping. If you wanna see how the locals do it, head to the marketplace.

    What to buy: There's not a lot you'll want to buy in the marketplace unless you're shopping for a freshly butchered chicken, but it's an interesting visit.

    hand painters

    Here you can find manly local painters who have their shop and can paint a T - shirt as you like it. It is nice souvenir, one that doesn't end up on the shelf waiting to be dusted. However I don't know how long the paint stays on the shirt.

    What to buy: Hand painted T - shirts with motifs of Yangshuo.

    What to pay: Ask for price before you order a custom made T - shirt. You can negotiate the price.

    Pantao Road - more shoppings

    by myspices Written Oct 15, 2007
    One of the hotels along Pantao Road

    Another shopping area like West Street - you can get lots of stuff here too. Concept is the same like West Street except that there are lots of makeshifts stalls. Pantao road is one the main roads in Yangshuo. I find that more foodstuffs are sold here than in West Street. Lots of fruits and dried stuffs along the main road of Pantao. It is as busy as the famous Xi Jie.

    What to buy: As much variety as those in West Street but more foodstuffs are being sold here especially fruits.

    What to pay: Some are of fixed prices and some are bargainable.
