How to go to Secret Courtyard Resort Hotel from Guilin Station at 8pm?
May I know the approximate time and costs? Thank you!

Answered by Heller from AUSTRALIA | Apr. 01, 2019 18:44

At 8pm, there is still a bus No. 3 available from the station to Ludiluwei which is about 1km away from the hotel. You may consider this option. If you have heavy luggage or travel with child, taxi would be a better option. It take around 30min by taxi and around 1 hour by bus. The bus only costs CNY2 per person, taxi should be around CNY30 to 40.

After I land at Guilin Railway Station by Z5, how to get to the cruise?
Answers (1)
Answered by Aalto | Nov. 29, 2018 17:19

I think you should go to Zhujiang wharf. It seems no public transportation, maybe taxi would be the best option. By the way, I suppose you will not be able to catch the cruise on the arrival day. The cruise depart around 8 or 9am every day. After your arrival in noon time, they all finished already. You need the cruise on the second day.
