A short taxi ride to the bus terminal, the usual fending off of aggressive touts (people soliciting business in a persistent and annoying manner), and we were on board the bus to Yangshuo. The ride was the bumpiest we had experienced in China. Most people seem to arrive in Yangshuo down the Li River from Guilin.
