Yangshuo, China- the changing face (Part 2)

Location: Yangshuo, Guangxi, China (24° 47′ 0″ N, 110° 30′ 0″ E)
Date: 13 April 2005, 6.10pm
Camera: Canon 300D with kit lens

In Yangshuo town proper, there is a hill with a couple of TV antennae, opposite the Yangshuo Park. The hill is properly known as Antennae Hill and is one of the highest points in the town area. There is a proper trail and one used to be able to walk up to the top of the hill, all the way to the antennae. The view from the top is incredible, with panoramas in all direction. It is especially beautiful and romantic to be there at sunset. Unfortunately when I visited Yangshuo again in 2007, the hill is no longer accessible to the public; probably as a result of 9/11 hysteria. It remains closed at the end of 2008 and I suspect will not be open to the public anymore. Anyway this photo is the view of one sunset from the Antennae Hill.

You can see more sinset photosfrom this spot here.
