How to plan my trip to Guilin from Hong Kong?
Hire a local guide speaking your language. Even if you are on a low budget, we would still recommend you use a local guide unless you have enough time to explore and try to locate every place. Though Guilin is famous for its natural scenery, the city and its neighboring areas are not very convenient, especially Longsheng for rice terraces. A guide will save your much trouble in locating yourself and asking for information. If you go with kids or teenagers, this should be your top priority.
For weekend trip planning, which we usually refer to 3 days including the round-trip flight time or high-speed train time, one should focus on the real highlights - Li River Cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo and the Reed Flute Cave. The cave is one of 15 most mysterious caves in the world. Must-see and must-do are Li River Cruise, Yangshuo scenery (either cycling or taking a bamoo rafting to enjoy ) and city highlights for Reed Flute Cave, Elephant Trunk Hill and Fubo Hill.
For a side trip from Hong Kong or a part of China trip planning, one should get 4 days on hand to enjoy the scenery and culture in leisure. If you are looking for the unique Karst scenery and the city charms, it would be cool to stay one night in Yangshuo for the nice scenery,the crowds and bars on West Street and even taking a bamboo rafting. Thus, your 4 days and 3 nights trip should be staying two nights in Guilin city for the rest and the essence including visiting a panda house in Seven Star Park and one night in Yangshuo for the cycling and the unique sightseeing by Li River Cruise.
If you are into minority culture and the amazing rice terraces, you can skip the night in Yangshuo and make all your accomodation in downtown Guilin instead. Then do day trips to Longsheng for rice terraces and local minority culture, Yangshuo for the scenery and the city for the charm respectively.
