|Just take a bus Guilin -- Yangshuo for 1 hour, then go on a bamboo rafting experience near Yangshuo. That's better and much less touristy.|
Hong Kong -- Guilin by direct flight is indeed the easiest, but also the MOST expensive by far!

|Our daughter had to be transfered from Yangshou to Hong Kong with a fractured hip.|
We set her by Learjet, a hospital bed to hospital bed transfer with Doctor on board,
What other possibilites could there have been?
A ground ambulance ride...

|That was probably the best choice given your circumstances. Most travellers won't be going by that, but neither would it have been possible for you to go via normal transport eg plane, bus or train.|

|Rent a van, and put a soft bed inside and go to Guangzhou. From GZ take a flight to HK, cost you less than USD1000|

|Airlines might not let an injured person on the flight.|

|Also, if you're looking to fly to Hong Kong, just take the soft-bed-van to Guilin instead of Guangzhou. Why would you need to drive 10 hours more to Guangzhou?|

|I was invalid once, due to stroke attack, and I could still use flight, strapped to either a wheelchair or plane chair. Anyway, you are paying for the learjet and medical personnel as well, that's why the cost is exorbitantly high. I just thought maybe in GZ there's a flight available to ferry the injured to HK. With hip fracture, the patient needs to be strapped too. Perhaps you could enquire with China Southern or other airliners.|
I do hope everything goes well.
