In Shi Ban Qiao, a village around 20 minutes walking from Yangshuo's center, sits one of the town's more eccentric hotels, which was once owned by a Beijing millionnaire. The Louis XIV furniture and taps may seem a bit kitsch, but the quiet rural location and the karst formations visible from the bedroom windows make up for a lot. The restaurant is one of the better ones in Yangshuo; food can be brought up to a rentable rooftop hot tub for a romantic sunset. A free minivan goes back and forth to town four times a day.
