If you don't mind the wet weather, from April to July, you can enjoy the fantastic rainy sceneries in Guilin, but umbrella is always a sensible item of your luggage during that period. However, the two golden weeks, namely May Day (May.1st-7th) and National Day (October.1st-7th), should be avoided. During that time, countless Chinese people flow into Guilin.

We will be doing a group bike ride through Guilin, Yangshuo, Guangzhou in mid October (less than 2 weeks). What clothing is appropriate for evening dining, touring, etc. If weather is warm, are shorts appropriate for men/women?

Just the causal clothes which is comfortable for you are ok for evening dining. There is no custom to wear formal clothes for evening dining, etc. The weather is warm during the day, but it is a little chilly in early morning and at night. The temperature is about 17℃-26℃. Shorts are ok, but it would be better to bring few long-sleeved dresses as well.
