If the transportation is convenient for you, and at the same time, the train departing at 13:10 is suitable, then it is the best choice. Otherwise, you can take train to Guilin firstly and then find another schedule to Yangshuo.

In fact it means a railway station, metro station cannot be used for rail ticket collection. If in Nanning, it means only Nanning, Nanning East and West Station can be used for collection.
