Yangshuo, China- the changing face (Part 4)

Location: Yangshuo, Guangxi, China (24° 47′ 0″ N, 110° 30′ 0″ E)
Date: 27 April 2002, 7.20am
Camera: Canon G1

Back in 2002, there weren't too many tall and new buildings in Yangshuo yet. They were starting to build a tall'ish hotel at one end of XiJia then but mysteriously when I went back there this year, I did not see the hotel at all. However there are plenty of new hotels and cafes; more outside of XiJia as well. Many empty lands had been converted to hotels. Even the morning market is no longer in existence- the area had been claimed by a huge hotel. The whole town is no longer quaint as before.
