Order of activities in Yangshuo

I have been reading about all the wonderful things to experience in Yangshuo. Here is the list that we came up with. However, I have no idea the order in which to do them. Where we use our best time, what is close to each other, what can be combined, etc. We have 3.5 days in Yangshuo mid April. Any help or other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Day 1: Guilin to Longji rice terrace

Day 2: Rice terrace back to Guilin

Day 3:Guilin to Yangshuo via Li River

Days 4-6 Yangshuo

Bamboo raft on Yulong


Water cave

Bike Ride




Evening water show

Shopping on west street

Gudong waterfalls

Cormorant fishing

??Other suggestions or activities you would change? Thanks so much.

Gudong Waterwall can be reached from Guilin and required half day tour.

Huangyao old town is nearby Hezhou city and is around 2 hours driving far from Yangshuo. Advised to skip it since the similarity of Xingping old town and Jiuxian village.

Jiuxian, Fuli and Xingping can be done in one day.

The others listed is in Yangshuo and can be done one after another, in whatever order.
