Guilin-Dali High-Speed Trains

Written by Fabio Updated Mar. 22, 2024

The Guilin-Dali train route is an extension of the Guilin-Kunming railway. There are no direct trains between Guilin and Dali before that time. Three pairs of high-speed trains operate on this route daily from 08:30 to 09:35.

If their schedules are not suitable for you, you can consider transferring in Kunming because more than 20 trains run from Kunming to Dali daily and vice versa.
