Tall Banyan: 
Guangxi - Yangshuo; 
Travel in Yangshuo, Guangxi Tall Banyan, located 7.5km south of Yangshuo, is one of the main scenic attractions of Yangshuo county. It is said that the banyan was planted in the Jin Dynasty and is now famous for its age and towering beauty.
The banyan tree is now 17 meters high, 7.1 meters around the trunk, and covers an area of 1000 square meters. When we look closely we see that it has beautifully twisted roots and gnarled branches, hoary with primitive simplicity. Its crown is round with an exuberant growth of branches and leaves. There is a huge branch stretching out straight beginning at 1 meter above the ground. Enduring wind and rain for thousands of years, it is surprising that this branch has not been harmed. The Tall Banyan is on the west bank of the Jinbao River. There is an ancient ferry crossing under the tree, called "Rongyin Gudu". Across the river, there are rocks of varying sizes, fascinating mountains and wonderful caves, setting each other off and forming a pleasing contrast. Surrounded by fascinating peaks, green bamboo, footpaths crisscrossing fabric-like between the fields, along with the local conditions and customs of a mountain village in the South all becomes a virtual paradise.

True, the reason why the old Banyan is well-known is that the view nearby is beautiful. But there is one more important reason. It is in this place that part of the movie Liusanjie is filmed. The shot in which Sister Liu threw a ball made of rolled colored silk to Brother Aniu as a sign of love is taken here. That's why lovers and tourists, filled with admiration, will take pictures of each other in front of this old tree.
