My family (3 adults, 1 elderly and 1 9 mo. baby) is thinking about going to Guilin, Yangshuo, & Long Sheng during the last 2 weeks of December 2008.
We've never been to China and traveling w/ elderly & a baby in winter seems a bit challenging.
What are your recommendation for where to visit (we don't like tour groups and would like to go on our own to more unique places)?
Is December a good month to visit (ie, foggy or sunny)?
Will we see the beautiful rice terrace at that time?
What are some of the must see places that are family/baby friendly?
Where would be a good place to lodge when traveling w/ a baby?
