Hong Kong - Guilin Flights

At present, there is no direct flight available between the two cities and all flights from Hong Kong need to transfer in Shanghai, Nanjing or Beijing to finally arrive in Guilin. As a result, the total travel time by plane is generally over 8 hours. Obviously, high speed trains have become the only best way to travel between Hong Kong and Guilin, with shorter travel time and cheaper costs.

By distance west kowloon station is closer. You can use taxi or walk to kowloon station to take airport express to reach HK airport. It is not a hurry to buy tickets now as tickets will only begin for sale since the 30th day before departure date.
