We are a couple in our mid 50's, planning 1st time to China in September 2012.
I have been reading the China forums for weeks gathering information.
We will spend aprox 4 days in Beijing, 2/3 in Xian area.
Would like to spend about 5/6 days in Guilin/ Yangshuo area.
Should we pre-book private tours from Australia or can we book a private guide or tours on arrival. If so do we book through our hotel?
We want to do the Li river cruise and see as much of the area as possible. Should we divide our stay between Guilin & Yangshuo or is it possible to just stay in one area and still do day trips?
