Hey guys! Thanks for looking at Yangshuo Fun Sam's Bed and Breakfast. My name is Sam and I live with my parents in a newly-built huge building. We have 15 rooms available for guest use and they all have private bathroom and western toilet, and our B&B can comfortably host more than 25 less than 30 people. My mom cooks good local food and always ready to share Chinese cooking with our guests. And we have bikes, scooters for rent.
I grew up in Yangshuo and I know my hometown very well, just like the back of my hands. Please feel free to ask me anything you want to know about my B&B or what to do in Yangshuo. I can help you put things together, make arrangements and get you a good deal.
Fun Sam's B&B is surrounded with breath-taking limestone peaks, close to many delicious local Chinese restaurants. A short walk will take you to the city center where a lot of the bars and shopping stalls are.
Fun Sam's B&B is a place where you relax and meet friends and exchange culture.

My mom gets fresh fruits from the local market, and you can have them anytime you want. My dad makes at the living room, and you are welcome to join him drinking tea. Beers and bottled waters are not free to take they are at your own expense. A kitchen where my mom cooks for us, you can also use it. There's a rooftop I'm working on, the view is impeccable and it's going to be a nice common area in the near future.
Interaction with Guests
As much as I can as long as I'm home, I'd like to share stories and help our guests get what they want in Yangshuo. Most of the time, I'm home and can be reached I'm free but from time to time I travel to other places so I won't be able to be present while I'm travelling but my parents will be home if I'm not, that is to say, there's always people to help you out when you are here.
In between the noisy touristic town center and quiet countryside, a nice biking or jogging or hiking trail out front the house, and easy access both to beautiful country view and vibrant night life in the downtown. Also a basketball court 2 minutes away the house and tons of good local restaurants nearby. The house is surrounded by breath taking limestone peaks so you got views from every angle.
There's no public transit in Yangshuo because it's a small town and everywhere is within walking distance. A lot of travelers hire bike, moped and cab to visit around.
The most direct and best way to get from the airport to my place is take a private car pickup. Best way to get to the airport from my place is carpool, and they will come to my place to collect passengers if the reservation is made here. Time table for carpool to the airport is listed below: 8 am, 10 am, 12 pm, 3 pm, 6 pm. Private airport dropoff recommended if carpool time is not right.
A new high speed train line and station is being built now in Xingping, a village 20km away from Yangshuo and this high speed line and station will be finished at the end of year 2014, until then most of train arrivals are still coming from the one in Guilin.
Other Things to Note
You will be given 2 keys once you check in, a key to your room and a key to the front door downstairs, please keep them well and remember to return them when checking out.
Please don't talk loud in the house because our other quests might be asleep in the room.
The parents of Sam welcomed us and they were very nice and open minded. They prepared amazing meals and help us when required. Sam also looks like very altruistic and dynamic guy too so I definitly recommend the whole family if you decide to stop your way at Yangshuo.
Sam and his family are realy good people. The room was very clean and the view from the room was amazing!! Sam was very kind and halp us with every question we had! Thank you for everything Sam, it was great to host on your place.
very nice place and family ! Sam and all his parents were so nice to us, amazing dumplings, incredible rooftop view and of course very clean and cosy room, his mother was very nice to us and Sam was very help full and give us a lot of tips ! thanks you very much
Very well located, very clean room, in the beauty of Yangshuo. Sam is very communicative, easygoing, openminded and smart. And all the family is very kind. It was really nice to meet them all. Special thanks for the mother's cooking and the father's driving.
When I read the comments at Fun Sam's Airbnb-Page befor I started this journey, I just felt familiar with Sam and his family and when I was there, I realised, that the comments were right! In a short time Elisabeth and me entered in the very kind, warm and easy-going atmosphere of this house. The bedroom and the common room are very cosy and the roof top, especially in the evening, is the cherry on the cake. A huge plus of this B&B is its location, in a quiet an nice side road, off the beaten track. If you are not used to eat noodle soup at breakfest, you will change your habit very fast, because Sam's mum makes a very delicious one. Sam's dad is a very kind and humorous person and it was a great pleasure discover this incredible beautiful region in his accompainment. Sam is a very amicable and open-minded host and was very helpful in organising our stay in Yangshuo. One thing that made our stay in Yangshuo very special was the fellowship in the evening on the sofa with Sam, Cello, Sam's parents and the other guests while eating some fresh and delicious fruit and this made it difficult to leave...
To echo what others have said, staying with Sam & his family is a wonderful experience. He and his sidekicks go out of their way to make you feel welcome and make the most of your time in youngshou. Make sure that you have Sam's mom's cooking for more than just the breakfast noodles. Her cooking is amazing! Our only regret is we couldn't stay longer.
When we first met Sam, we thought he had spent extensive time in an English speaking country. His mannerisms and language fluency is impeccable. His cultural knowledge makes for a comfortable stay at his simple B&B.
Sam's is guaranteed to give you a place just outside of the main drag with easy access to phenomenal bike routes and other outdoor activities. His parents are kind and sure to care for you. You can tell where Sam got his manners!
The downstairs living room is just like staying at a very comfortable home. You'll often find Korean Dramas on while Sam's mom peels fresh vegetables for the next meal she's cooking.
The bedroom we stayed in was simple and clean, with a larger all-in-one style bathroom.
Sam had bikes and mopeds for rent, tons of knowledge on preferred activities (such as Impressions Show, Rock Climbing, Bike routes, Places to eat, etc.), and an exceptional attitude for planning it all.
Stay with Sam if you are trying to keep your stay home-like and simple with tons of adventure during the day!

He believes that cultural exchange is a very important part of travelling. He wants to show Yangshuo to the rest of the world.
