Today I had the whole day to myself in Yangshuo. It took a while for me to get my bearings and I needed to ask for directions a few times, but eventually I found the market street. There were some wonderful crafted items on sale, so after quite allot of bargaining I succeeded in gathering some birthday presents for my family. The shop owners were certainly determined to sell things to you, some even chasing you down the street and grabbing your arm to sell their products, starting off with a ridiculously high price and working their way down. I eventually learned to simply glance at what they had on sale rather than going to look!
