There are frequent buses all day between Yangshuo and Guilin. The key is to understand and know where to find the 2 different kinds of buses. You have the choice of an express buses or a non-express bus. For an express bus, buy a ticket for 20 yuan at the window in the bus station between the waiting area and the area where the buses sit. This bus leaves ON TIME and DOESN'T STOP along the way, and your ticket will have a seat number making it a great choice. The non-express buses can be found inside the bus station facing one of the exits. For these, you pay 18 yuan once you're already on the bus. The bus won't leave until it's full (including the aisles sometimes), and it will stop several times along the way, picking up and dropping off people. The trip can take from 1 hr 20 min to 2 hrs.

Xinping is a little village north of Yangshuo where you can hire bamboo boats to see the river and the mountains. Though there are organised tours to visit it, the simplest and cheapest way is to take a public bus to this cillage. It takes less than 30 minutes and you can find it at the Yangshuo Bus Station.

The nearest airport is Guilin. From Guilin's bus station you can take a minibus to Yangshuo, that takes about an hour. In fact you can take it in the street just stopping it, but taking it from the station is safer.
There are many buses per day, as Yangshuo is a popular location.

I took a sleeper train from Guangzhou to Guilin, then a bus transfer from Guilin to Yangshuo. Train from Guangzhou departed 7pm everyday, 14 hours, Y201 for upper hard sleeper and Y220 for lower hard sleeper. I arrived Guangzhou in the afternoon, was lucky to get a same day ticket.

If you choose to take a bus it's better to do it from Yangshuo. Save money, save time. If you wanna make it even cheaper, then catch a local regular bus to Guangzhou. Usually at the roundabout not at the bus station. No luxury at all minimum comfort if any, but really cheap. You, probably, would need some help from locals to direct you to the bus.

I segguest, you should go to Guangzhou by bus from Yangshuo straightly to Guangzhou. This will take you less time and money compare to a train besides the train tickets are also hard to get sometimes.
There are a lot of travel agencies in Yangshuo who can help you book the bus tickets.
Of course if you are lucky enough you can get a low price fly ticket.
If you wanna more info, contract me.

I booked my Li River Cruise at the Backstreet Youth Hostel, where I was staying, and it cost RMB400 which included a bus pick-up from the hostel and lunch on the boat. This was the "western" boat cruise where the boat and food are better than the cheaper "Chinese" cruise. It's probably better to do the Western cruise even though it's more expensive as you're with other western travellers even though were still quite a few Chinese as well.

It looks like a van and the Chinese termed it the "Mien Pau Che" (Bread van). We took this vehicle from Yangshuo bus station direct to Fuli, the Ancient town. The bus will go throught the Dragon Back Hill tunnel. The ride is about 20mins-25mins, making quite a bit of stops along the way. The fare is 2.50yuan per pax one way. The so-called bus is non AC and old looking. The bus will stop you at the main road when it arrived at Fuli. To get back to Yangshuo after you have completed your visit to Fuli, you will just have to cross over to the road to where the bus has stopped you earlier when you arrived.
