I want to thank all posters in this forum for helping us make our travel plans to visit Yangshuo and get very excited about doing so!
I have one question: we need to fly from Beijing to Guilin and I'm wondering if we actually need to make in-country air reservations in advance (we've taken care of our travel from the US to Beijing).
Frommers suggests that one need not make domestic reservations in advance and that one will save a good deal of money by getting flights directly from the airline agents themselves. What do folks here think about that?
We are going to be arriving in Beijing on a Sunday afternoon, expect to crash on arrival, and then leave for Guilin on Monday morning so we can maximize our time in Yangshuo before we return to Beijing on Friday to meet the rest of our group.
Any thoughts on how we could save money on the Beijing <-> Guilin airfare would be appreciated. Thanks so much!
