From Zhongshan to Guilin.
By GUNNARF11 | 5/9/2011 6:44:51 AM

The trip started with a bus from Zhongshan to Guangzhou. This time the trip was "very planned" in advance. The trip to Guangzhou usually takes about 1.5 hours. My brother was visiting and we would trying to take in a few places in southern China in the 14 days of his visit lasted.
We bought the day before the tickets for trains leaving T38/T39 19:47
3 Hard Sleeper, 2 pc Lower berth, 1 st Middle berth
2 x 215 + 1 x 207 RMB. (I mention prices here for those planning to go on your own).
For those who do not travel in groups, I recommend Willma wizard China, large and thick. Prices of rooms is perhaps not always, but it gives much info and above all is a lot of town names of places to visit in Chinese and help when English is not too widespread. Good when to buy tickets. Look train, which is the file: a must and you get much info to write off. It is good if you have plenty of time for ticket purchase. can be quite a queue,
same at "commit" to the train or bus. Large and many waiting rooms. The snow chaos for a few years ago "lived" about 100 000 at the station, who did not come off due to stopping of all the snow and ice in neighboring provinces.
I had booked a room in Yangshuo, and arranged by Jack at Peace Family Hotel, the
he organized the purchase of tickets for the boat trip on the Li River. These must be purchased days before and we wanted "English boat" this time.
The train comes to Guilin at 6:42 pm.
Departures for boats are: 09:30 to 10:30
There is little time to eat breakfast and on the other side of the square near the railway is lots of little nice places. (We took a breakfast for 6 yuan, about 6 RMB / person
and it was very good. The area reminded a bit of 'China's most breakfastplace "Wuchang in Wuhan, which is considered the best breakfast place in China. However, China is huge. I had arranged to ferry tickets would come to a particular hotel and we had time to go and look at the elegant pensioners morning fitness classes at river edge. image. There is also a "water taxi" to use your mobile phone or waving after transport. Paid previous 1 RMB per person for crossing.
Back to the hotel, where we got the tickets and told that there will be a bus
and collect us. How the bus came in and out again on the street, I had described the
as impossible, but it was possible.
2 Double Bed Rooms, 2 nights 160/rum = 2 x 2 x 160 = 640 RMB

How to get to Downtown from Guilin Airport
By MISSYBUNNY | 11/22/2010 12:29:16 AM

Guilin Liangjiang International Airport is the only airport in Guilin, and is about 30KM from the center of the city. To get to downtown, you can:

1. Take the Airport Bus. There will be an airport bus waiting for the passengers after each flight, at the exit of the arrival hall. It takes about 40mins to downtown, and 20RMB per person. The last stop is Civil Aviation Mansion, after get off you can take a cab to wherever you want to go and normally won’t cost more than 20RMB.

2. Take a taxi. Since the airport is about 30KM to the city center, it costs more than 100RMB to take a taxi. So, if you are solo traveler, I suggest you to take the airport bus, but if you are a group of people, you can split the bill. Lucky for me, my friend gave me the number of a taxi driver, who charges only 80RMB for the ride( it could be a little more expensive at night), so I never have to change at the Civil Aviation Mansion.

3. To leave for the airport, you can also take the bus at Civil Aviation Mansion from 06:30 to 20:00. The buses will depart every 30 minutes and the cost is the same.
