2. The time spending in the air is about 1.5 hours. However, counting in the time to/from the airports, which are far from downtown, as well as time consumed for boarding procedures, the total travel time is about 4 hours. This has no big difference with a high speed rail ride.

Therefore, a convenient high speed train is more recommended for your Nanning - Guangzhou tour.

From Guangzhou to Vietnam by land
The train and flight is not possible to get, is there any other way to reach Vietnam?
Answers (1)
Answered by TravelChinaGuide | Apr. 24, 2020 17:19

Thank you for your inquiry.

If by land, you may take a train to Kunming first and then to Hekou, the border with Vietnam. However, the port is now mainly for goods use now. Only Chinese and Vietnam citizens are able to back to their own country from the port. Normal travelers cannot go through due to the current coronavirus breakout.

Is Nanning East Station far from our hostel at ASEAN Central City, No. 10 Guiya Rd?
Is there a convenient and economic way to travel between? Thank you.

Answered by Brennan from SOUTH AFRICA | Sep. 01, 2019 17:33

Compared with main station, East Station is a little bit closer to your address. The most convenient way is surely taxi which would cost around 30 Chinese Yuan. If you want a economic way, you can use the subway line 1 to ASEAN Trade Zone. Your address is around 1.5km in South direction.

I think you should refer to the Nanning station, the main station or East station? There is no south station for passenger service. From the airport, you can take shuttle bus to main station directly. The duration may around 1 or 1.5 hours. To the east station, you may take the bus to Wharton International Hotel first and then take metro line 1 from Nanhu to the East Station. The duration may aroud 1.5 or 2 hours based on the traffic
Answered by zhang from MALAYSIA | Sep. 15, 2017 02:51

Thank you and appreciate for your reply, Fallon. Very sorry, the station is East Station and not South Station.
