So I just wanted to clarify that from Sanjiang ( east station) , there are buses going to Longsheng hourly. Then from Longsheng there are buses every 20 mins to Dazhai? Is the bus from Longsheng direct or is there a bus transfer in Heping?
In Ma'an/chengyang, I've only been able to find 2 accomodations available:Chengyang Bridge National Hostel and Yang's Guesthouse. Any opinions on either of them? We will be arriving in Sanjiang around 1AM by train from Zhangjiajie and would prefer to get straight to Ma an, does anyone know if either place above will provide a pickup at that time of the morning?
We are thinking of probably staying in Dazhai, however since we are coming from Ma an/Sanjiang through Longsheng to Dazhai, we will have all our luggage with us. Now, to get to Guilin ( and then Yangshuo) I understand we can go from Dazhai to Heping ( do we change buses here?) and from there to Guilin bypassing Longsheng entirely? Or is that just going from Guilin to Dazhai that you can go through Heping bypassing Longsheng? I guess what I'm trying to find out is, is there anywhere on our way to Dazhai where we can leave some of our luggage behind or will it be best to just take it with us? We are hoping to pack with just 1 large size luggage each and maybe a small carryon.
Also in Dazhai, trying to determine the best accomodations taking into consideration comfort and views both. If anyone has pics anywhere that would be great! Have heard minimal information about Wisdom Inn and Minority Cafe and Inn. Alternatively, we have considered staying at Tiantouzhai at the Jintian Guesthouse but I understand that's about a 40 min hike (?) from Dazhai with our luggage so am totally tossed up in there air for that. Opinions and personal preferances on Tiantouzhai or Dazhai is greatly appreciated.
So then getting from Dazhai to Yangshuo, we take a bus to Heping or Longsheng? And then from there to Guilin and onward on another bus or taxi to Yangshuo. Is this correct?
Thank you in advance for any and all opinions and suggestions and help!!
