|Hong Kong to Guilin and Yangshuo|
|May 9, 2007 22:24|
|I want to go from Hong Kong to Yangshuo and the Guilin. That seems like the right way to go when I look at a map, however, everything I read has people going to Guilin first then Yangshuo. Why is this? Does the train from HK only go to Guilin? Is there any train that departs from Yangshuo toward Shanghai (where I want to ultimately go) or must I go back to Guilin? Whatever the answer, what train do I take?|
I'm hoping some personal experiences can help.
Thanks in advance

|Perhaps others can validate my belief that you can get to Yangshuo from Hong Kong via the south. I believe you see most entering the region thru Guilin because they are on limited schedules and flights to the region arrive at Guilin. The flight from HK is about an hour. |
Most who visit the area take a one day trip down the river and return to Guilin by coach. Others take the bus, private cars, even the river boats to Yangshuo and stay a few days or longer. .
I am thinking that your trip to Yangshuo from HK is going to be around 12 hours. Perhaps another can provide the schedule and routing.

|People fly into Guilin because that is where the airport is located. In fact it is quite some distance outside the city and over one hour from Yangshuo. You can catch a minibus to Yangshuo from outside the Guilin train station (1 hour) for around Y15/20|
Yangshuo has a lot of good accommodation available and more to get a room here in the busy timesand there is lots to see in a more rural setting than Guilin itself.
Alternatively, There is a first class sleeper coadh service from Hongkong directly to Yangshuowhich may suit you.

|Have you read the link I provided above?|
With your time limit I would suggest that you fly Shenzhen -- Guilin on 26/9 and take the overnight train Guilin -- Shenzhen on 28/9, arriving on 29/9 morning. Or, you could also fly back the same way.

|GUEST75145||I am interested in the first class coach direct from Hong Kong to Yangshuo. Is there any way to get the time table and book this from the U.S.?|

|If you're generally street-smart and alert -- do not leave anything where it's not within your range of vision -- you should be ok.|
I don't remember the Guangzhou -- Guilin bus price, probably no more than 200 RMB.
