If the visitors of Yangshuo usually look for the most scenic spots of the region, they also have a strong desire to experience the local sights in a more authentic way. Following this guideline, the Yangshuo Rosewood hotels tours will give you a good idea of the scenery and the local life. You can discover those by bamboo rafting, cycling into preserved countryside, river cruising or by visiting the minority villages near the Guizhou province. All our guides, Anny, Janey and others... come from the surrounding villages. They know where to find the unspoiled spot and give you the natural feeling of Yangshuo. Those tours include bicycle trips but they can be replaced by electric scooters or by taxi.
