I'll be in Yangshuo in mid-October and would just like a little help dialing in my itinerary. I had no idea there was so much to do/see in the surrounding area, I wish I could stay a whole week. I have 3.5 days though so I want to make the most of it.
We arrive via river boat from Guilin and I believe we arrive around 2-3pm so I was thinking (if possible) that we could do the ten-mile galley bike ride when we arrive and then see the light show in the evening (perhaps our hotel can just book us tickets? not sure if it's necessary to reserve ahead of time).
The next day I'd like to see the sunrise at Xianggong Hill - hopefully again our hotel can arrange transportation, and then come back to hotel and bicycle to Jiuxian Village and continue to Dragon (Yulong) bridge. Later in the evening catch the sunset from Lotus Peak.
Day two - would like to do a boat ride on the river. This is where I need a little help. Would love to do the bamboo raft and see Xingping and the nearby fishing village, but I also just want to take whatever the most enjoyable ride is. What route is best?
Day three - this day is pretty open. Any reccomendations out of these?
