After having read several guidebooks and numerous posts and travel agency itineraries, I am still at a loss as to the best way to organize a trip to the Dong Minority /Dragon's back area. Could I ask anyone who has been in the area to put in their two-bits worth, please?
We will be staying in Yangshuo for a week first (that has already been booked), and want to be picked up there with a car/driver (there are two of us). I'd like to go to Zhaoxing and probably spend a day hiking thrugh the numerous villages there; go to Sanjiang Dong and also to the Longji and Pingan terraces. We'd like to hike about 3-4 hours a day and visit all the other sights (bridges, drum towers etc), and stay in places that have great views. We're certainly not budget travellers but not 5 star either.
Has anyone been in the area and done a similar trip? Could you recommend what sort of itinerary to plan so that I can book something (car / driver etc). I'd very much appreciate it! Cheers
