We are evaluating others offers, on your web page the cost is 210 for pax, Is there a different cost from guilin airport? If yes how many? Thank you in advance for your help Best regards Silvia

There is no bus from the airport to Yangdi. The best way to get there is by taxi (CNY 200-300).

If you want to save some money, you can take the airport coach/bus (CNY 20)to the civil aviation hotel (the locals call it Min Hang Jiu Dian or Min Hang Da Sha), the driver may remind the passengers get off at Shanghai Road (Shanghai Lu) if they go to the railway station or bus station. In the railway station (you need not go to bus station), you can take the minibuses (CNY 10) to Yangshuo. Bear in mind that you get off at Yang Di intersection (Yangdi Lu Kou) not at Yangshuo (tell the driver in advance). In Yangdi Lu Kou, you can take the minibus to Yang Di Pier. In Yangdi pier, you can buy the raft ticket to Xingping.
