You can consider to take airport shuttle bus to reach Nanning Railway Station and then take a high speed train to Guilin. If you are not very tight in time, you can buy ticket at counter.

Question about getting on a train at different station.
I found that some trains runs at both stations in Nanning. So we are wondering if we can get on the train from any of them or it have to be the station we booked?

Answered by TravelChinaGuide | Jul. 29, 2019 19:48

Thank you for your inquiry.

You can board from the station you booked or another station after that. However, you cannot board from station before your booked one. So please double check the ticket and station booked. If you booked tickets from its first stop in Nanning, you can board from any of them, but if the second stop, you can only board from the one booked.

South railway Station.
Is there an Airport bus with a stop at this station (end of line S1 from the airport) ?

Answered by Alonso from MALAYSIA | Nov. 07, 2018 00:26

Which station do mean? there is no South Station in Nanning.
Answered by Arnold Demeyere from BELGIUM | Nov. 07, 2018 02:38

Thank you for your answer,
On my map of the Nanning Metro Map, I see there are 2 crossings of Line 1 and Line 3. The Northern crossing is at the Nanning Railway Station. The Southern crossing is called the "South Railway Station".
In that station terminates also Line S1 of the train coming from the Airport. Or they mean a Metro Railway Station ???
Anyway, is there a Bus Stop at that point where one of the airport busses stops ?
Answered by Alonso from MALAYSIA | Nov. 08, 2018 02:14

Get it, it is not Nanning. The city you are looking at should be Nanjing. Yes, from Nanjing Lukou airport, there is S1 line direct to Nanjing South Station. Both line 1 and line 3 can be used to transfer from Nanjing South Station to Nanjing Station.
Answered by from BELGIUM | Nov. 08, 2018 02:55

Dear Alonso,

3 minutes ago I did find out I did use the Nanjing Metro Map ! I'am happy you did confirm my wrong working during those days. I destroyed all the Nanjing metro maps on my PC and repleace them with the 2 lines NANNING metro map ! And of cause I'am starting to recognise the names of the stations on the google map !
