Situated at the east bank of the Li River, 23 km (14.3 miles) southeast of Guilin City, Daxu Ancient Town was originally formed in 200 AD during the Northern Song Dynasty and has a history of roughly 1,800 years. It was the leader of four renowned ancient towns in Guangxi Province as early as 600 years ago.

The two-kilometer-long ancient street is paved with bluestone slabs, with well-preserved old buildings standing alongside. Most buildings feature the style of the architecture of the Ming and Qing dynasties, including black bricks and black tiles. Every building was well designed for both commercial and residential use, composed of a gate, courtyard, principal room, wing rooms and backyard.

Some ancient workshops, such as shops featuring bamboo products and straw sandals, clinics and barber shops can also be found in the town. The local food, customs and traditional culture will leave visitors with lasting impressions.
