  1. Hi there,

    My 5 companions and I will be in Yangshuo from this coming Monday, Sept 28 through Friday October 5th, and a few of us are interested in horseback riding. Do you take reservations?

  2. Yangshuo insider says:

    Hi Erin,

    Sure we can arrange a taxi to pick you up at your hotel and take you across the center of Yangshuo to the Li-river where the horse riding takes place along the shores of the river. Price is 120Y an hour and the transfer between the Li-river and your hotel would be 60Y return.
    Hope this helps,
