I was planning on spending 3 nights in Guilin before taking Li river cruise to Yangshuo and spending 3 nights there. 6 nights total in the area. But from what I've heard, Yangshuo is the place to be. Is there a lot More do in Yangshuo that Guilin? Should I spend just 1 night Guilin and 5 in Yangshuo?
On another note, We want to do the rice terraces but my dad has bad knees and can't walk long distances or climb. I'd really like to stay there 1 night but with dads mobility issues I don't know if it's a good idea. Would it be better to just do a 1 full day tour to rice terraces? If so, should we take tour from Guilin or Yangshuo?
I'd like to find an under 150 Yuan/nite hotel that is clean, quiet, with English tv. Agoda reviews show not many hotels meet this. Do you have any suggestions?
Hi I am visiting Guilin form 2nd - 5th May. My return flight is on 5th May morning.
So I have total of only 3 days to see most of Guilin (2nd, 3rd and 4th May).
I have made two hotel bookings. One at Dazhai Village (2-4 May) and another in Guilin (near Guilin Railway Station) 4th-5th May.
Could you please kindly suggest a preferable itinerary for 3 days Guilin visit? How much does a cab cost to book for 3 days from airport pickup, 3 day tour and airport drop?
Does below makes any sense
Arrive at Guilin
Guilin City tour
Drive/Train/Bus to Dazhai, Longsheng
Longsheng Rice Terraces
Early check out
Drive to Yangshuo
Li River, other attractions
Drive to Guilin
Drive/Bus/Train to Airport
Please share your tips. Thanks in advance.

In 2013, a VT member said: There is direct bus to Detian Waterfall at Long Dong Bus Station. You can take the 8:30 bus (bus fare:48rmb) and arrive at Detian Water at 13:00. The ticket to enter the waterfall area is 80rmb.
My question is, is the bus service running now in 2014 and is the travel time correct?
Hi, I visited Yuanyang rice fields in Dec when there was only water in the fields. This June, I will be visiting Guilin and initially thought of visiting Longsheng rice fields but I have read that during this time, the rice fields will only have water. So I am thinking of skipping the trip since it may just look like Yuanyang. Any opinion from people who have visited both before, please?

I was given an address for a friend in Wuzhou, China but when I tried to order something for delivery to that address I was told it was incomplete. After further correspondence with my friend she was confused as to how the address could be incomplete. I'm wondering if there was just a simple problem with the translation as I only speak English. The address I was given is: 1--820 Zhongshan Road Apt A3 Wanxiu, Wuzhou, Guangxi, China 543000
Can anyone help me figure out what's missing or wrong with this address,please?
Please could someone help. We are a family of 2 adults and 2 young children arriving in Guilin at the beginning of September 2013. We would like to spend the 1st night in Guilin (as our flight arrives at night) and make our way to the rice fields the following morning. We would like to avoid other tourist as much as possible however get to see the various villages and spend some time with the locals. As we have 2 young children, it will be difficult to do any long hiking trips.
We have had so many various quotes for private taxi driver for the day, however it seems so expensive! Please could someone give me an idea of a realistic price we can expect to pay for a driver for the day. After our visit to the rice fields, we need our driver to take us to our hotel in Yangshuo.
Is it worth considering only having a taxi take us from Guilin and drop us off at Dazhai and we make our own way around the villages. How much would this taxi cost us and will it be easy enough for us to get a taxi back to Yangshuo?
How much can we expect to pay for a taxi from Dazhai to Yangshuo?
Are there any other villages around the rice fields that are less visited by tourists that you would recommend for us to see?
I also have another question:
We would like to book an overnight soft sleeper train from Guilin to Shenzen. Please could someone let me know what the train number is, what time it leaves Guilin and also how much the 4 soft sleeper carriage costs. How can I book this from overseas?
Thank you so much,
I need to get from HK to Guangzhou and back. I think I'd like to train it - how is the train service? What is the quality of the train? Are there categories like first class, second class etc. Are people allowed to smoke on the train? I cant be near smoke. Is it safe for a foreign female?
Thanks for any help.
