Introduction: Lao Zhao is a traditional Chinese farmer, many local photographers know his name, his home is quite cloase to Hebao Hill, the best place for a good panoramic picture of sunrise on Li River. He renovated his Old Ancestral House for professional cameraman to stay overnight 30 years ago. he did not allow a man and a woman to share one room, even if you have married for years.
Once a Chinese couple showed him their official certificate of marriage statue issued by Chinese authority (Who takes this certificate when you are travelling?) , but he said 'No Way', because the old house is the Ancestral House. Traditional custom... After the new hostel has been built in Spring of 2005, he started to "allow" couples to stay in one room overnight... Mr. Lao Zhao knows every small trail in this area, he will be your best guide, you need to climb the mountain at 4h30 am in darkness, for your sunrise picture.
Rooms: Rooms are clean and tidy, the bathroom are Chinese style, which means a HOLE.
