Thank you for your inquiry.

Is the child is 150cm tall, you can still buy a child ticket firstly, however, if the train staff questioned about it, they may ask you to pay a price difference on board. Therefore, please kindly prepare some cash with you. Hope this information can help you.

Answered by Franco from INDONESIA | Dec. 06, 2018 17:18

Well, the station to use is decided by the train ride. They use different stations. Guilin Station, the main station is in city center area, therefore, usually this is a better option. It could be earlier to transfer to hotel in city area.
