Topic From: Yangshuo Countryside Cycling
We want to take a 3-4 week privately guided trip for 2 to China in April, May, or September, and hope to get to Tibet. We do want to see the Great Wall, the Terracotta Warriors, and the Guilin province, and Shanghai, but we also want to get off the beaten path a bit. This bike trip was interesting for this reason. Which month has more rain? Which month might be more crowded? Too hot, too cold? What would you recommend? We like to stay in nice hotels. We do not need a single guide who travels with us all the time -- we could be met by guides in each location.

Topic From: Fenghuang Transportation
If there is a direct bus from Fenghuang to Guilin for 150 CNY, is there a direct bus from Guilin to Fenghuang? Where does it stop? How long does the bus journey take? Can I book tickets n advance?
As far as I know, there is no direct bus between Fenghuang and Guilin. You need to take a bus from Fenghuagn to Jishou city (around 2 hours, CNY40/US$6.5), then take an overnight train to Liuzhou city( about 8 hours, CNY223/US$36), at last take a bus or a train to Guilin( around 2 hours, CNY30/US$5).
There is only one train from Jishou to Liuzhou, you'd better buy the tickets in advance.
