Yangshuo is now crowded with travellers and the price for everything is getting more and more expensive, people who looking for a silent world will consider of arranging their accommodation outside Yangshuo or in Xingping. The world more beautiful than Guilin lies between the roads from Guillin to Yangshuo and Xingping. 

Transportation: High-speed train from Xingping or shuttle bus to Yangshuo back to Guilin on your own is the most convenient way recommended. 


A. The route B is possiblely to be affected by the rebuilding of the main road from Guilin to Yangshuo.  The route A countains steep off-road climbings among mountain areas and is not suitable for unskilled riders but it's ok for people with good long-distance cycling backgound.

    Hello Guiliin Holiday
    I will be staying at the Guilin Sheraton and would like to take the A route on Sunday 9th of April (but B is OK if A is not possible)
    I am a regular cyclist with a club in England, so will be fit enough for the ride.
    I would like to use SPD clips. Do I need to bring my own pedals?
    Will you collect me from the Guillin Sheraton?
    Do you bring me back there in the evening.
