      Hi Brenda,

      Personally I like the Yangshuo Village Retreat for a stay in Yangshuo. It’s actually just outside the town centre in a beautiful village, but they have a free shuttle bus in to town through the day. Cruising on the river is great, either on the Yulong River or the Li River, it’s up to you. There’s heaps to do in Yangshuo January can be a little chilly, so bear that in mind.

      Feel free to email me directly info@yanghsuo-insider.com and I can help you plan your time in Yangshuo.

      All the best,
      Jono

    Hi, how much will it cost to arrange a mini van for 6 pax with small luggages only for a one way transfer from yangshuo (at the above- mentioned hotel) to guilin sapphire hotel? And can we still make a booking with you for the Li River cruise on May 26 and how much do you charge for it? We are 6 pax in the group and will be deparing from guilin sapphire hotel and staying overnight at Yangshuo on May 26. We prefer the bigger boats that you were mentioning and does your price includes pick up from hotel and lunch as well?
    Thanks and hoping to hear from you at the soonest so we can decide before we arrive Guilin

    • Jono says:

      Hi Judy,

      At the moment the Li River cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo is 378Y per person, that’s for the nicer class of boats. The price doesn’t include transfer to the dock but we can arrange that for you, neither does it include lunch I’m afraid.

      Transfer in a mini-van from Yangshuo back to your hotel in Guilin is 440Y,

      If you would like me to book this just email me directly to info@yangshuo-insider.com.

      Kind regards

    i havent book any hotel at yangshou as im not sure where the bus from guilin will stop at Yangshou. Can you give the idea?

    • Jono says:

      Hi There,

      So the bus from Guilin to Yangshuo will arrive at the north bus station in Yangshuo, this is about a mile of so from the centre of town. You can walk it in about 20 minutes, or catch one of the local yellow busses. However I know that our recommended hotels in Yangshuo will all be able to help you get picked up at the station and taken to the hotel or hostel.

      I hope this helps,
      Jono

    Which route is more interesting to travel from Guilin to Yangshuo?

    1. By a boat cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo?
    2. To go to Yangshuo by bus , then take the rafts cruise along the Li River?

    • Jono says:

      Hi San Yoot Wa,

      Both options have their merits, I would say that the cruise is more interesting, but obviously takes a lot longer. The bus journey is particularly boring (as most bus journeys are) but will afford you more time in Yangshou for other activities. Personally, I would take the cruise.

      Hope this helps,
      Jono

      • San Yoot Wa says:

        Thanks. Jono,
        Then, my wife and I will most probably take the river cruise because we have ample time in Yangshuo. I heard that the cost of the river cruise for 4-5 hours is quite exhorbitant. What is the ticket price for the cruise? Is there a discount for senoir foreigners like many other attractions in China?
        We plan to stay in Yangshuo for 5 nights just the two of us. Is it easy to join other small groups for daily tours?
        Hope u would enlighten us on these matters. Thank you in anticipation.

        San

          Hi San,
          Good choice, the cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo will cost 368Y per person if you book with us. There are other, cheaper tickets available but it’s not always certain that you’re getting exactly what you want. My colleague here once bought a ticket for a river cruise but ended up on a shabby little raft, only completed half of the distance and was left stranded in the middle of nowhere! Our contact offers one of the nicest boats on the river and we’ve been using his services for over a year now. I’m afraid there aren’t any discounts for senior travellers on the cruise, sorry about that.

          For some ideas for activities and tours whilst you are here in Yangshuo check out our activities page and you can pick and choose what activities you would like to do. Very easy to arrange for you.

          Kind regards

    Hello- We would like to book a taxi from yangshuo to guilin airport,,, May 9, our flight leaves 630pm. We are a party of 4 with 4 suitcases. Could u please help us with this request and the cost.
    Thank you, Deborah

    • Yangshuo Insider says:

      Hello Deborah,
      Generally the trunks of taxis – even the newer models here – can’t fit 4 suitcases all in at once so we suggest to opt for a mini-van instead. Price for a mini-van transfer will depend on your location in Yangshuo, for all hotels in the center and just around the price is 440Y, for hotels in the countryside the price could be less but most often a bit more. The route we arrange is always along the highway route, which is safer, faster, more scenic and more comfortable.
      Thanks for the useful question, we will follow up further inquiries through email, info@yangshuo-insider.com.
      Cheers,
