... a small field of flowers (3 yuan), Big Banyan Tree (a big tree, and according to the tourist info the place where most films are made!) for 20 yuan, and Moon Hill, which is a rock with a hole in that they were charging 15 yuan for. There was a bunch of women at the front offering to sneak us in the back way for a reduced rate, but we resisted their kind offer and cycled back to town with our daily budget intact.
Another thing we did in Yangshuo was a cookery ...
... an option, but Hangzhou is basically miles and miles and miles of one big lake, with lots of little islands scattered within the lake (we took a boat to a few of the famous islands), and gorgeous, green countryside/hills surrounding the entire area.
