Yangshuo Travel Tips

Yangshuo is one of the most beautiful counties in Guilin. Tourists can easily obtain Yangshuo tour information like attractions, hotel information, restaurants and many other tourist information from the internet or tour guide book of variours kinds, or even get those mentioned information from Yangshuo tour maps. In this artical we want to stress some most practical information that tourists should know to plan for their Yangshuo tour activities.

How to Select a Yangshuo Hotel or Hostel
We recommend tourists to select a hotel or hostel in downtown area. Yangshuo is a very little county with a population of 30,000. The public transportation is not very develop, and the urban lighting system is poor in Yangshuo. Tourists may meet many problems if they select a hotel or hostel 3 km away from downtown area. It is really inconvient for tourists to attent day time activities, and situations will be worse in the evening. Of cause, safty is the top important factor for the tourists to select a hotel.

We also notice that there are many hotel advertisments on the internet, especially some riverside resorts or mountain villas. Their rooms are good, the view is perfet and their prices look very reasonable. Still we must point out that tourists should consult a map carefully before tbey book and prepay. Again, transportation and safty are the main question should be considered. And the hidden cost could also be one important factor that tourists should not neglect. Some hotels in remote area sell their room at a very low price, like 200 or 300 rmb per night, or even very low price, but they sell their breakfast at a price over 100 rmb per person. If you select a hotel like this, you have almost no other choices, all restaurants and canteens are many kilo meters away.

How to plan your Yangshuo tour
Tourists should consult Yangshuo maps and Guilin tour maps carefully before they plan for their Yangshuo trips. This is the most important thing before planning.
