How to go to Yangshuo from Guilin airport?

Yangshuo has no airport. The nearest airport is the one in Guilin. As yet, there are no direct buses from the airport to Yangshuo. There is an airport shuttle bus you can take to the downtown of Guilin city and then take a Express Bus or Tourism Boat to Yangshuo. One of the best routes to take to Yangshuo if you wish to head there directly is to fly to Hong Kong, cross the border to Shenzhen, then take a flight from there to Guilin. Both China Southern Airlines and Shenzhen Airways serve this route. Flying directly from Hong Kong to Guilin can be quite a bit more expensive, but only takes about 50 minutes.
