National Holiday in Yangshuo

I spent the Chinese National Day holiday in the city of Yangshuo (阳朔县).  Since the Chinese government extended the holiday several years ago to a week-long affair, domestic tourism has increased exponentially in the area, with karst formations with impressive peaks, scenic river rides and some of the best rock-climbing in China.  The resulting crowds, tourist traps and confusion left me feeling at times like this first image from our arrival.
