The Yangshuo Outside Inn is a group of nine restored traditional farmhouses which are all part of a small countryside village called Chaolong (4 km north-west of Yangshuo).
The Outside Inn is was started by Herbert Bloembergen. He was born in the Netherlands in 1964. After high school he studied law at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam. After his masters exam he went on a 6 month tour around the world. The world turned out to be too big to be explored in only six months, so many more long trips followed.
