Dàcūnmén Night Market
This night market is a culture-filled slice of nontourist Yángshuò life. Watch locals sniffing out the best spices or bartering for their snails, but be warned: it’s not for the squeamish. Exotic tastes such as beer fish, dog hotpot, fish-head soup, frogs and snails can be found here. It’s a 30-minute walk from Xijie.
