The bar scene in Yangshuo is hardly eclectic now, but there’s still ways to have a rip roaring Friday night.
Lights years the best restaurant in Yangshuo is now Namo Namo, formerly Ganga and in the premises formerly owned by The Brew. Many people friendly German Andy from the brew, said no one ever.
As well as being the best restaurant new Ganga is also the favourite hangout for the expats of Yangshuo. They have a great selection of drinks (including jäger) and if you ask nicely they will even make you fish and chips!
Sadly at about 10pm the awful music of nearby bars starts, and that is when it is time to leave.
The only logical next stop is Bad Panda Bar. BP as the cool kids call is open from 8 pm until 10 pm, and the party is known to last until the wee small hours. Always an eclectic crowd, great staff, probably the cheapest drinks in Yangshuo and usually epic banter and nights you don’t remember.
On Saturday head to Ganga for lunch and start the whole process again. Eat, sleep, rave repeat.
