And G2907 takes the shortest travelling time, tickets of it are in a great demand. Travelers wishing to take this train had better purchase the tickets as soon as they are available.

2. Yangshuo Railway Station is in Xingping County rather than the city center. There are shuttle buses around the railway station which can take you to the city center in around one hour.

You could pick up the D2812 ticket at Hong Kong kowloon station (at window 1- 10) firstly, then you know the platform number, which is printed on the ticket. Then, you could use Transfer (or fast transfer) at Guangzhou South station, just follow the indications at the station.

What is the most convenient way to reach HK Airport from Yangshuo?
Answers (1)
Answered by Kevin from USA | Apr. 25, 2019 18:52

There is no direct rail service. You may consider to go to Guangzhou first and then take another train to West Kowloon. Finally take airport express line to reach HK airport. I heard there is buses from Guangzhou to HK Airport directly, but not sure about the information and how to buy a ticket in advance. Second option, you may consider to go to Guilin first and then to HK by direct high speed ride. It depends on your time.

I suppose if I book a ticket to Guilin, I can still get off in Yangshuo right?
Is there anything else need to be noticed in advance? Will it be a problem when I exit the station? Your advice will be appreciated.

If the train you booked also stop at Yangshuo before it reach Guilin, it is no problem to get off there. It is no problem to exit the station.
