Longsheng Transportation

Longsheng County is located 78 kilometers (50 miles) northeast of Guilin City. Buses between Guilin and Longsheng are frequent. From Longsheng County, travelers can take buses to Longji Rice Terraced Fields and nearby counties.

Longsheng Bus Station

It is the final stop for all buses bound for Longsheng. It is also the station for all intercity buses for nearby counties of Ziyuan and Sanjiang, and long distance buses to Shenzhen and Guangzhou.


Direct buses depart every 40 minutes from 6:40 till 18:00, and the ride takes about 2 hours.

Bus schedule from Longsheng to/from Dazhai: Earliest bus at 7am Last bus at 5.20pm Interval half hour Travel time: 2hours Fare: 7yuan one way

Bus schedule from Longsheng to PingAn 7.40am, 9.20am, 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 5pm Bus schedule from PingAn to Longsheng 7.30am, 9.00am, 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 5pm Fare: 7yuan one way.

Longsheng to Ping'an Village

Longsheng is the gateway bus station to access Ping'an and the Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces. The ride may be around 7 yuan, (Lonely Planet said 6.50) but there's a 50 yuan per person entrance fee into the park area that contains admission to Ping'an. This is a great ride if you like cliff-hugging, narrow roads, and is therefore scenic if the weather cooperates. It is also the only way up from Longsheng, though you could probably get private transport along the same road.

Buses from Longsheng to Sanjiang run from 6:00 till 20:00 every day, with departure almost every 30 minutes. The ride takes about 2 hours, and the road is bumpy.

Every day there are about 2 buses from Longsheng to Ziyuan, departing at 07:20 and 13:50 (for reference only). The ride takes about 3 hours, and the road condition is not very good.

I have read that every morning, there was a direct bus from Dazhai to Yangshuo. Is it true and do you know its timetable ? Thanks a lot for the help. Agnes

Dear Agnes,

According to the information we had, there is no direct bus from Dazhai to Yangshuo or Longsheng to Yangshuo. You need to take the bus from Longsheng to Guilinat first and then fromGuilinto Yangshuo.

Hello, Is there a direct bus from guilin train station to Longji rice field? How long does it take to go from the first to the second area? How frequent are the buses? Can we sleep next to the terraces? What do you advise us? Thanks a lot in advance, Victoire
Hello Victoire, thank you for your inquiry! There is no official direct bus from Guilin Train Station to Longji rice field, and the traffic to Longji terraces is really inconvenient. Or there is a direct bus provide by Tianranju Inn. If you want to sleep next to the terraces, Tianranju Inn is a good choice. The bus departs from the parking area of Guilin Train Station at 8:30 every morning. After arrive the parking area of Longji terraces, you still have to walk for 40mins to the Inn. We provide customized tour service, and if you meet any problem, please feel free to let us know. Doris Huang replied on 2012-03-22
