If you want total peace and then select Monday or Tuesday night. Since there is no market days before or afterwards, you will have the place to yourself. If you want to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the Quiche Maya market days (Thursday and Sunday) then stay overnight Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, or Sunday.
The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
