As I know, Mingdu Jingpin Hotel is on the opposite of the Chengxi Bus Station, which is at the quite convenient location. It is situated at no.473, West Bada Road. It charges CNY130-200 for a double room.
2. Do you want to ask the distance between the High Speed Train Station and the Bus Terminal in the second question? If I get it right, the distance is only 3 miles (5 kilometers).
Next question, how often does the bus go to Huangyao? Do you have a link to a website? Thank you!

How regular is the bus from Yangshuo to HZ, how much is the fare and how long is the journey?
It is suggested to go to Huangyao first, because there are direct buses to reach Huangyao from Yangshuo.
From Huangyao, I heard the direct bus exists.
The buses from Yangshuo to Huangyao can be taken from YS Bus Station and it takes about an hour to reach Huangyao. The bus from Huangyao to HZ, I am not very clear about the exact information.
