Kunming to Yangshuo via Guilin

Stayed in hotel room till 12. Have seen enough of this city to enjoy a relaxing morning. Gradually everyone else surfaced and we sat around and I had another pizza then at about 4pm we left for the airport to catch a flight to Guilin. The flight was on China Southern airlines which was cleaner and had a lot more room than the Air China flight. I had a window seat which was great. Took some photos of Kunming from the air. Arrived in Guiling in the dark but lots of neon lights at the airport.

Onto a private bus to Yangshuo. Out the window you could see outlines of the Karsts (hills) which make this place ledgendary. Arrived in Yangshuo at about 9.30pm and went to bed again in my own room. Very hot and humid room and a damp, stagnant aroma and again I have a shower with a leaking shower tray.
