Travel by High-Speed Train

With the development of China’s high-speed rail network, the trains run much faster than before. In the time it takes a normal-speed train to travel one way from Guilin to Changsha, a bullet train can do the journey both ways.

The ticket price is also cost-effective (a second-class ticket is 184.5 CNY (27USD)). It is highly recommended to take a high-speed train to travel between Guilin and Changsha.
