About:Guilin Travel

I will be in Guilin End May/begining of June. Whats the temperature like?
I plan my travel for 8 days. I intend to stay Guilin-Yangshuo 5-6 days, then visit Guangzhou 2-3 days .
Can someone advise me tips on:
1. Guilin airport - Guilin : transport and places of sightseeing : No. of days preferred
2. Guilin - Yangshou : transport (river cruise - no. of hours, and how much, easy to buy ticket or to buy in advance ?)places of interest, no. of days preferred. I read books saying that the river cruise have 2 types - 1 for European (more expensive) and 1 local (cheaper?)
My friend and I do not ride bicycles. So cyclying along countryside is not possible. Any other mode of transport - like cars to visit countryside from Yangshou ? Good to stay overnight ?
3. What is River Show, time and place , fares ?
4. River rafting from Guilin or Yangshou / Yulong river ? It takes how long and from which starting point ?
5. Loongsheng Terraced Field - How to travel to and back, preferred from Guilin or where ? Recommended to stay overnight?
6. Guilin or Yangshou to Guanzhou. How to travel and fares? Any Train or coach, time table etc ?
7. Guanzhou back to Guilin, How to travel and fares? Any Train or coach, time table etc ? Fly out from Guilin Airport.

The temperature at that time is favorable. Not hot, because it is only average 28C in its hottest month, but it is rainy in May and June. For your questions:
1. Airport bus to the railway station of Guilin, 20 yuan per person for 30 minutes' drive, or 80 yuan for taxi which can take you just to your hotel. Sightseeing places, you can take it for reference
2. Guilin Bus Station has direct buses to Yangshuo and it will take 1 hour and 20 minutes. The better idea is to have a river cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo along the Li River.
3. The river show is at the Menghuan Theater at 95, Qixing Rd, Guilin City. It begins at 8pm at night and the fare is about 120yuan.
4. Bamboo raft is take to cruise the Yulong River. There are cruise ship from Guilin to Yangshuo along the Li River. Suggest fo no take rafting, expensive and the scenery is not food.
5. Guiling has express buses to Longsheng (1h40m)and then change to another bus to Ping'an Village (1 hour). There are also ordinary bus running directly to Ping'an Village. Vice versa.
6. Suggest you take train from Guilin to Guangzhou. T40 (9:28pm-8:38am), total 11 hours. Coach is not comfortable.
7. When you come back you can take T38 (7:47pm-6:42am). the ticket fare is about 320 for soft sleeper and 100 yuan less than the hard sleeper.
