1. Bike — the Most Popular Activity

Tandems for 2 people are available, very suitable for couples or families. Or if one person does not ride the bike,  while the other one can ride (which is more tiring) so both can experience Yangshuo countryside on a bike.

3. Electric Golf Cart — the Most Comfortable Way

For those who do not opt to bike, especially in the heat of the summer, taking an electric 'golf cart' is the most comfortable way of sightseeing in Yangshuo's countryside. The golf cart can seat 6 people excluding the driver. It is electricity-powered, open at the sides but has a canopy to protect passengers from the sun and rain.

4. Electric Scooter — a New and Exciting Experience

An electric scooter is like a motorcycle, but electricity powered with much less noise. It is much faster and takes less strength than a bike, and yet you still take control than an electric golf cart. Many of our customers find riding an electric scooter a new and exciting experience.

Riding Tips

  • Try riding a bit to see if there's any problem with the bike before you rent it.
  • Do not leave your belongings just on the basket in front of the bike. Tangle the bag strap on the handle bar.
  • Bring water and snacks in case you need these. Wear sunglasses, sunscreen and hat in summer.
  • Wear comfortable but not slippery shoes.
