I walked for well over an hour and was starting to wonder what I was going to do (there were sporadic hotels along the road so that was an option if public transport didn't come along soon), when a car stopped and asked if I was OK. A man was driving and there was a woman in the back with her baby, who (from their limited English and my limited Chinese) I think was a tour guide. They were so helpful!
