Welcome to Yangshuo!

Limestone paradise of South-China.


Pick-up service from/to Guilin or Yangshuo:


To ease and lower costs for private transportation to and from our Yangshuo hotel, we offer a pick-up service from the Guilin airport, train station or your Guilin hotel, and Yangshuo town. Transfers to or from Guilin can be provided at anytime, day or night, without additional costs, if booked and confrimed by us from beforehand.

Pick-up from Guilin airport:
There are 2 ways to get here by taxi from the Guilin airport (95km). Recommended is the highway route (1h20min) by either a taxi (1-4p*, 320Y) or mini-van (4-10p*, 440Y) which counts for a more scenic, faster, safe and comfortable journey, hence recommended. We can also help you to book the cheaper option by bumpy and generally high traffic main road (1h40min) per taxi (1-4p*, 290Y) or mini-van (4-10p*, 410Y). When not specified we will organize the recommended highway route for you.

* A taxi (sedan type) can fit maximum 4 people with light carriage. If you carry more luggage than can fit in an average sized trunk and on top of your laps, hiring a mini-van is recommended to ensure a comfortable journey.

Reservations: In order for us to arrange your pick-up efficiently, please provide us with your preferred route, full flight number and scheduled arrival time.

Pick-up from Guilin train station:
A pick up from the Guilin train station or any hotel in the Guilin city area (65km) for up to 4 people with little luggage (taxi sedan) costs 220Y.  For 4-10p we can arrange a mini-van for 320Y.

* A taxi (sedan type) can fit maximum 4 people with light carriage. If you carry more luggage than can fit in an average sized trunk and on top of your laps, hiring a mini-van is recommended to ensure a comfortable journey.

Reservations: To arrange your pick-up please provide us with your full train number and scheduled arrival time.

Pick-up from Yangshuo:
To ease your way to our hotel we offer a pick-up service from anywhere in Yangshuo. When arranged through our hotel a pick-up from the Yangshuo bus station will cost 20Y. Please note that the drivers there, unfamiliar to us, will generally charge 30Y or more. We have no control over this so if you mind to spend more than necessary, please contact us to arrange this pick-up for you.

Unfortunately, this cannot be organized from beforehand as arrival times of boats and buses differ too much from scheduled times. Please call us upon arrival in Yangshuo during reception hours (7.30am-23.00pm), tell us where you are (there are phone shops near the bus station in case you did not bring a phone) and we will send our driver to pick you up soon. Most commonly you will arrive by bus at the Yangshuo bus station where our driver will meet you in the waiting hall next to the ticket office in the bus station with a name card of our retreat.

Sleeper bus from Shenzhen or Guangzhou:
When you come on a sleeper bus from particularly Shenzhen and Guangzhou you will most likely be dropped off at the gas station which is located at the other side of town, a 10min walk away from the bus station. These sleeper buses tend to arrive very early in the morning and since the operators realize arrivals between 4.00-05.00am are not attractive, they might mislead you with a more 'Godly hour' of 6.00-7.00am. Please note that our reception opens at 7.30am.

Outside of these hours:
Outside of these hours we advise to either print our Chinese address mentioned at the bottom of our confirmation email and all web pages, or easier, ask a Chinese to help you copy it on a piece of paper for you, and show it to one of the drivers near the bus or gas station to get you here for 25-30Y (depending on nr of passengers and kind of transport ).
