They are operated between Guilin Railway Station/North Railway Station and Zhengzhou Railway Station. If traveling by normal trains, passengers are advised to choose Z286, K1627, K21, or Z5 as they depart in the afternoon or evening and arrive at the next noon. In this case, they save the day time and one-night hotel expenses. A hard sleeper or soft sleeper is advised for such a trip so that passengers can lie down for a rest.

Guilin – Zhengzhou Train vs. Flight

For passengers who are tight in time, flight will be a quite good option as direct flights only take about 2 hours for a single trip. It saves a lot of time. The full price for an economy class seat is CNY1,280, but usually, passengers are given a 20% - 60% discount, making flights more competitive compared with trains.

In contrast, high speed trains take a longer time. But a high speed rail trip provides a good chance to appreciate the beautiful scenery on land. In some high seasons, its ticket fare can also be attractive.

Normal speed trains are good options for budget travelers as their ticket fare is the lowest among the three.

The distance is 9km, so usually around 30min one way by taxi if no serious traffic problem. The cost would be around 30RMB too. If it is hard to find a taxi by yourself at hotel, you can ask hotel to call one for you!
