While much of the souvenir junk in Yangshuo can be found at much better prices elsewhere, the two chopsticks stores in town, Jiu Mu Tang Kuai Zi Fang, Xi Jie 63 (tel. 0773/886-3000), and Quan Yi Kuai Zi Fang, Xin Xi Jie (tel. 0773/298-1771), do deserve serious attention. Both shops have a fair selection of travel sticks that are a great investment for the environmentally conscious traveler who does not want to be responsible for even more deforestation through the daily use of disposable chopsticks. A selection of models is available from ¥10 to ¥100; they also make beautiful gifts for other ecologically minded friends, either at home or on the road.
