About Yangshuo

Fishing Village roof - Yangshuo China

A Dreamscape in South China

Yangshuo is famous for its surreal karst landscapes and crystal clear rivers that meander through emerald rice fields. It is very popular with foreign and Chinese tourists as a place to see the amazing landscapes while floating down the Yulong River on a bamboo raft, or by tour boat from Guilin. The surrounding countryside is culturally rich but there are many poor families with disabled children who have no access to education. Teachers with Ginkgo Academy have the opportunity to live in Yangshuo while contributing in a very meaningful way to the education of disadvantaged children.
