All the 5 or so pairs of rides run between Guilin North Railway Station and Hangzhou East Railway Station following almost the same route as high speed rides. Guilin North Railway Station is around 5 miles (8km) away from the city center. Bus No. 100 (double-decker) can connect it with Elephant Trunk Hill and other attraction sites. These rides take much longer time than high speed rides. However, their price is much lower. Thus they may be a good option for student and budget travelers.

For a long distance trip like this, it is highly recommended to choose a sleeper like soft sleeper or hard sleeper to guarantee a good rest. Except Soft Sleeper and Hard Sleeper cabin, there are also some Deluxe Soft Sleeper cabins set up on T77/T78 which can offer a private space for passengers who travel in a group of two.

I am not sure if I get you right, you would like to get off at a stop along the way for a short visiting and back to the train? This plan would not work as once you get off at halfway, we will never be able to get back. So you need to plan a trip in advance. Personally speaking, I recommended Nanjing, Suzhou, Wuhan and Changsha.

Hello, I do wish to book business class seats since I am traveling with seniors.
But it seems no business class seats offered on all trains? Is this possible?

There is indeed business class seats on these rides, but they are usually offered to longer trips from beginning stations etc. So it is hard to get from Guilin, a stopover in halfway. Maybe you can book a seat available now and ask for an upgrade after boarding if there are free seats. But indeed this is a chance, not 100% success.
