From Guilin airport to Yangshuo and rice terrace


Me and my wife are planning days in this area at mid June.

The flight arrive at 18:00 at Guilin airport and return to Shanghai 3 days later, at 12:00.

We are thinking to visit Yangshou and go for a bambo rafting to enjoy the beautifull landscapes.

How about the rice terrace ? Worth a visit or, considering the short stay, it's better to spend more then one day in Yangshuo and skip rice terrace ?

At the moment our itinerary is:

Day 1: Arrive at Guilin airport at 18:00, overnight in Guilin

Day 2: Bus to Yangshuo, then bamboo rafting, return to Guilin

Day 3: Day tour or bus to rice terrace. Back to Guilin

Day 4: Flight from Guilin(12:00) to Shanghai

What you thing ?

Re the rice terraces, your first concern should be those days are the very rain season. Early Jun, rice is just planted, so by mid June rice is still not so big, the scenery is light green with water in fields. If no rain, the trip will be worth it.

Note, June is the very river flooding time for Guilin-Yangshuo area. If too much water, rafting may not available.

We could not do the rafting when we visited in early April this year due to flooding so went on a longer bike ride instead (interesting though rather muddy because of the rain). However we were able to the rafting so last time we visited in April a number of years ago, again after a lot of rain. It just depends how much they've had recently I guess.
