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.

Is it better to get off at Guilin Station or Guilin West?

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.
