If you are going travel to Yangshuo,There is a Serious warning for.Some of my friends have already reported the some situation and very bad experience on this aspect, So,I have to report this situation again,Hope more and more travellers won’t make the same mistake again.
Serious warning :
Pease ignore the dodgy local tour guides or strangers around Yangshuo bus station!!!
I am not sure some of people in this forum has met the same situation before,when you arrived Yangshuo bus station,there are some dodgy local tour guides try to follow you,some of them maybe pretend to find a hostel or hotel for you,some of them want to become your local tour guide.Be careful of these people.Most of them only want to make some money from you, do not trust them unless you know them before,of course do not pay any money to them under they asked.Some of them maybe disappeared once they got money,some of them will ask you pay much more than regular price in accommodation or entrance tickets.
1.you had better to make a reservation for your room in Yangshuo before you leave for Yangshuo.
2.If you don’t know how to get to the hostel/hotel,you had better to make a call to the hotel and ask them to pick you up in the Yangshuo bus station,or you can take a taxi to the hotel directly.
3.If you take a night bus from Shengzhen/Guangzhou/Zhuhai to Yangshuo,Maybe you will arrive in Yangshuo very early in the morning, you had better to ask the hostel/hotel provide pick up service,and ignore these dodgy local tour gudies.
4.If you take a bus from Guilin train station to Yangshuo,Don’t get off the bus at the Yangshuo gas station,even the driver ask you to get off the bus.some of the driver has the business relation with these dodgy local tour guides,maybe the dodgy local tour guides just wait for you after get off the bus near the gas station.
5.Every hostel or hotel in Yangshuo can arrange the tour and book entrance tickets for you very convenient,Cheap is not good,Don’t trust the local tour guides facilely unless he/she has a good recommendation or good reviews posted on this forum before.
