Spring Break 2013: Guilin and Yangshou, China

We took several hundred photos... So I will try to keep this post from keeping miles long :o) Our week in China was really, really fun! We traveled with our friends and their two kids. The girls were 4 and 6 and our boys loved having the traveling companions along for the trip. 

Photos from the sleeper bus. We were on the top bunk, there is another layer just like this below us. Hard to really see what it was like... we were at the back of the bus..
arrived to rainy weather... the kids didn't mind... but, they were wet and muddy the whole week, so hard to keep them out of the puddles. :o)
Our first hotel

We ate lots of good food.
The biggest naan bread ever! :o)
Fir Lake at night...
seeing the rice terraces. 500 years old wow!

a little local lunch...
A boat down the Li river

at a cave with funny lights and our second hotel
hiking moon hill...

checking out yangshou
They claim this is the worlds oldest banyan tree (1500 years)!
we traveled with Sarah and her family... so fun!
some shopping and yummy breakfast food!

The boys and their giraffe souvenirs that kept them busy for hours!
Bike trip!
Another great local lunch.. this was called farmers food :o)
Max couldn't hang on any longer!

Night tour to see the birds fish.

We did this our second day, so this is out of order, but we went to these amazing natural hot springs. the kids loved it! We stayed away from the 50 degree C pool (122 degrees F) and opted for the cooler, less cooking yourself options! ;o)
There was even a slide into a cool pool.
