Whilst Yangshuo has a reputation for having a great nightlife, when you take away the Chinese noise pollution 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 bars, 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 t-shirt in their shot challenge. They previously offered a free shot to anyone who surrendered their underpants. However now that their ceiling is full, this offer 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, Bad Panda is one of the best places to go party.
