Q & A about Guilin by Our Customers
Topic From: Guiyang Transportation
Hi We are hoping to travel from Guiyang to Guilin on May 7. We are not sure whether to get the overnight train or a flight. Is the overnight train comfortable? Does it get crowded? Will we have to share a compartment? Are the airlines recommended?
Asked by Cherrill on Mar. 4, 2014
(Mar. 5, 2014) replied:
Both flight and train are available from Guiyang to Guilin, If you need, we would like to book the tickets for you. It is an over night train travel and there is only one train each day. Soft sleepers would be suggested on the train, but you will share a cabin with others as there are 4 sleepers in one cabin. There is only one flight between the cities and GS6465(1420-1510)is available on May 7.
I would like to tailor a Guiyang and Guilin tour for you if needed.
If anything, just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I am planning to go to Guilin on 28th January ,planning to stay there for a week.what are the places that I shouldn''t miss ?how is the nightlife there?
Asked by Jazz on Jan. 26, 2014
Hi Jazz, below are some places recomended:
1. Elephant Trunk Hill (exterior view), it is not necessary to go inside the park, as really not much worth visiting.
2. Li River cruise
3. Yangshuo county and the countryside
4. Longsheng Terraced Field in Guzhuangzhai (the fields are in the period of water storage )
5. Daxu Ancient Town, while you can see the local customs in Chinese New Year
Regarding to the nightlife, I suggest that you go to the Zhengyang Pedestrian Street. There are bars, stores, snack senter, etc.
You can also walk around the Sun and Moon Pagoda Park and the Ronghu Park. The night views are beautiful.
Have fun in Guilin!
Topic From: How to Plan a Day in Guilin
My partner and I are planning to spend about 5 days in Guilin / Yangshuo, possibly in late September. Our interests are photography, bird spotting and enjoyment of the scenery that those places provide. To get the best results we would like to hike (moderately difficult) for 1 or 2 days. If a scenic hike could be combined with bamboo rafting and seeing the cormorant fishermen that would satisfy a few of our plans. The other days should include the cruise from Guilin - Yangshuo with accommodation for 1 night in Yangshuo before returning to Guilin for our departure. Accommodation should be in 3 star hotels / Guest Houses. We would arrive by air from Shenzhen, having flown there from our home in Sabah, Malaysia. We could consider rail travel between Shenzhen and Guilin, so information on this would be appreciated.

It take about half an hour from the airport to downtown(CNY20/US$3.3 per person).
You also could take a taxi from the airport to the train station, it costs about CNY80/US$13 per car.
Topic From: Guilin Attractions
my family and I are planning a few days in Guilin and are wondering what the best sights and the most economical way to see them.
Asked by kath on Dec. 30, 2013
Greetings from Cecilia at China Highlights Travel.
In Guilin, the Li River cruise, Reed flute cave, Longji Terreced Field and Yangshuo would be must-see sites you should never miss. We could arrange tour packages for your family. Would you please let me know the number of people in your group and when you will arrive in Guilin? How many days you would like to stay here? And do you have a budget for the hotel? I am glad to help you with this trip. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
