Daxu Ancient Town
Daxu town, located about 29 kilometers away from Guilin, is one of the four famous historical towns in Guangxi province by dating back to 200 B.C. The town covers an area of 193.78 square kilometers with a population of 51,600.
A 2.3 kilometer long and 2 meter wide stone street runs through the town with ancient buildings, most of which were built during the Ming and Qing dynasties and are revered. The wooden architectures have colorfully decorated eaves, elegantly carved doors and windows, and they have been served as many local houses till now. It really flourished during the Ming and Qing Dynasties and the Ling Canal provided the transportation to Daxu that needed to be a local center of trade. After railroads and highways were built, the town's trading slowed considerately. However, it still keeps the traditional bamboo workshops, straw sandals workshops, funeral shops, herbal clinics and the barber shops. It is a quaint town with hospitable citizens and strong historical elements.
