We are planning 4 nights (so 3 actual touring days) in Guilin/Yangshou in March with our kids ages 9 and 10 at the time of the trip. Looking for itinerary help from someone with experience traveling or working with families with kids this age.
One of our biggest dilemmas is whether to take the cruise from Guilin to Yangshou or just drive straight to Yangshou. I’d hate to miss the scenery one gets with the Cruise, but also worry that 5 hours getting that 4-5 hours of scenic cruising could be a bit long for the kids. Also, the cruise would mean an additional hotel night in Guilin with unpacking/packing. Anyone with thoughts on this?
Also looking for itinerary advice once in Yangshou. We’re more interested in authentic experiences and local culture, and outdoor activities.
Will likely stay at the Yangshou Mountain Retreat.
