Today was another early start, as we decided no to bother packing all our stuff last night! Not very sensible!! We managed to book ourselves onto a boat cruise tour whose final destination was Yangshuo - our last stop in China. Our morning was mostly spent picking people up from other hostels and hotels before we (finally) got on our way! First stop XingPing (funny name!). From here we took very noisy motorised boats out onto the river Li to see the view that was put on the back of the 20 yuan note. Very pretty karst scenery and a lovely river! Yet again, what could have been a peaceful hour spent on the river was rife with the sound of motors and shouting! Still, we enjoyed it!

On to Yangshuo, where we managed to totally confuse our hostel by asking them to pick us up somewhere random in town. Thankfully we managed to find our way to the bus stop for a lift and spent a good 20 minutes having a half Chinese/half English conversation with some man in a cart who was determined to take us where we needed to go! We managed to wait for our real driver and got driven out into the middle of nowhere to our hostel!

We've spent our evening planning more of our trip beyond China, it's now 9pm and we're both falling asleep! Early night for us tonight!!!
