If you're ever at a loss at what to do, where to go, or how to plan your trips anywhere in Yangshuo or China at large, visit 11 Youth Hostel. Run by three young Chinese youth and started in 2009 (ish), this place has the friendliest staff ever, who will give you loads of GOOD, HONEST advice on what's value for money and what's not.
Especially fantastic was one of the owners, Mr. Ye (叶, pronounced Yeah - be careful, he'll make you say it three times in a row the first time you ask him, just for kicks and a laugh!) He really knows the place, the tours they offer, what's cool and what's not. Take his advice! He even helped someone who wasn't staying there plan her solo trip around the south of China, "just because".
The hostel itself is very well set up for just chilling and watching movies on those days that you don't get up and go rafting/drifting/hiking/climbing/biking - all that outdoorsy stuff that Yangshuo is famous for. Great place to meet people, great place to get advice, great place for a great time. Don't mess with those other places on Lonely Planet - try 11 Youth Hostel!
