Whilst Yangshuo has a reputation for having a great nightlife, when you take away the Chinese noise poultion bars, and worse still the overpriced loud offensive offerings of West Street (50 RMB Tsingtao anyone?) there’s actually probably only about five, or six Expat and price friendly “pubs”, and Bad Panda is one of the best.
Located just off of West Street, and with a rooftop location Bad Panda offers a fairly wide beer selection starting from as little as RMB 15, as well as cheap shots and the chance to win a tshirt in their shot challenge. They previously offered a free shot to anyway that surrendered their underpants, although now that their ceiling is full this is no longer on the menu.
As with all bars in Yangshuo they offer table football, unobtrusive music, and uniquely two crazy dogs you can cuddle up with on the sofa.
If you’re going to spend time in Yangshuo BP is one of the best places to go party.
