Yangshuo used to have a backpacker/traveller/nightlife scene that was the envy of China. It doesn’t anymore. Bars have been closing down at a rapid pace over the last few years, with not much remaining.

Nightlife can now be split into the following:  (1)awful bars on West Street that charge New York prices and (2) The 4 remaining expat-style bars that really take advantage of the lack of competition.
