Nanning - Kunming Normal/ Overnight Sleeper Trains

They are running along the conventional railway between Nanning Railway Station and Kunming Railway Station. Running at a top speed of 75 mph-99 mph (120-160 km/h), they take longer time compared with high speed ones. But they are popular among budget travelers, especially the overnight sleeper trains like T381/T382, K231/K232 and K983, because they not only save one-night hotel cost but also daytime for traveling around. Travelers interested in overnight sleepers are recommended to book the ticket in advance as they are usually in great demand.

from Nanning Marriott Hotel to railway station for Kunming
How many hours should I prepare to take the train to Kunming?

Answered by Inmaculada | Mar. 27, 2019 00:21

It tales around 30min by subway line 1 from the hotel to station. You need extra 40min for boarding process. If you will collect the paper ticket at station too, 1.5 hours would be recommended.

There are rides from both stations to Nanning. You can choose the station based on your hotel location etc. The main station is closer to city center area, the South Station is a little far but there are more rides a day offered there.
