Train Travel Tips:

1. From Guangzhou to Yangshuo, there is no G train, while from Yangshuo to Guangzhou, G2907 is available, but the tickets are quite hard to get, since the railway authority releases less tickets for this route. As 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 buses around the railway station which can take you to the city center in around one hour.

3. When failed to get tickets for Guangzhou - Yangshuo bullet trains, you could also try to book Guangzhou - Guilin high speed train tickets since there are much more trains between Guangzhou and Guilin. In this way, you need to make a transfer at Guilin. From Guilin to Yangshuo, except trains, there are also Li River cruise ships and buses available; vice versa.

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.

From Yangshuo to Hong Kong (Kowloon)
I am thinking in taking a train from Yangshuo to Guangzhou and then change to another Guangzhou to Kowloon for arriving to Hong Kong.I leave 30 minutes between trains ...is it enough? Or better one hour? I am not sure if I have to make a control passport in Guangzhou.

30 min is obviously not enough, you need to leave at leave one hour for the connection.

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.

What is the second class seat like on train D2368?
I was informed that they are not normal seats but beds?

Answered by Carl from SINGAPORE | Oct. 29, 2018 23:55

I think you mean the transformed seats right? On some of the rides, they do not have normal seats. Instead, passengers will sit on the lower bed of a soft sleeper bed, 3 passengers on same bed. If you want to know how it looks like, you can check the photos of soft sleeper cabin.
