China - Stone Forest & Yangshou - advise please!

Jump to last reply

We will be in Southwestern China for 3 weeks in November and early December. I'm working on our schedule in Kunming & Yangshou. I would really appreciate some advise!

Option 1 - arrive in Kunming early Sunday AM on an overnight train. Spend Sunday taking a day trip to the Stone Forest. QUESTION - Should we expect huge crowds of tourists if we visit the Stone Forest on a Sunday in late November? Or is this the "off season"?

The week would be spent visiting the Rice Terraces near Yuanyang and Jianshui, before flying to Guilin Thursday evening

Under Option 1, we would take a river boat to Yangshuo on Friday. We would spend Saturday biking and hiking in the Moon Hill area. Should we expect huge tourist crowds in Yangshuo on a Saturday in early December, or is it 'off season'?

Option 2 is to skip the Stone Forest. That would allow us to move our day of hiking in Yangshuo to Friday, and we would pick up an extra day in Hong Kong. But we would miss the Stone Forest.

Help please! We don't know whether the descriptions of huge crowds of weekend tourists in these areas would apply to "winter" weekends.

Thanks!
