In 1998, after the new parking place outside the town was completed, passengers needed to walk 40 minutes to find their tour coach after the Li River Cruise, the local people found the new way to offer transfer service by rickshaws from the dock to the parking lot. Sometimes it was dangerous when the people rode quite fast in a sharp turn.
A kind of Golf Car was introduced to Yangshuo, in Chinese it is called 'DianPingChe', means 'Electric Power Engine Car'. The local government started to use these Golf Car to open the bus service lines in the town and its surrounding areas. This was the first time Yangshuo has its local bus system.
For people who can not ride a bide to see the beautiful rice paddies around Yangshuo area, you might hire a Golf Car. It can take 10 persons for a ride, the cost is RMB 250-300 per car, plus extra tipping RMB 100-150 to the driver. You might ask other passengers you met on the Li River Cruise to go with you, and share the cost together.
