Where to Stay in Yangshuo?

The hotels in Yangshuo concertrate on two areas: surounding the West Street and along the Yulong River. 1) The hotels near the West Street are easy to reach, can enjoy bars and night life, but will be noisy and crowded. 2) However, the hotels along the Yulong River will be more quiet and private, also with larger room and amazing countryside landscapes, but 10-20 km away from the downtown although almost all hotels have the free pick-up service.
