Once, in ancient times, Xingping Town was the largest town along the Li River. It is 63 km from Guilin and 25 km from Yangshuo, on the east bank of the river. Xinping's historical and cultural relics remain intact. They include slab-stone streets, the ruins of Xingping County of the Southern and Northern Dynasties, the buildings of the Ming and Qing Dynasties, and so on. The old street is a one-kilometer long stone street lined with old brick buildings and assembly halls like those of many different provinces.
Xingping Town is one of the most renowned ancient towns in Guangxi.
