1. There is no business class seat and VIP seat on the Nanning to Yangshuo bullet trains or vice versa. Only first and second class seats are available.
2. The first class seats for this trip are usually in great demand. If you plan to reserve one, reserve it as early as possible once your travel plan is set.
3. As there are only two departures per day for both directions, standing tickets will be issued when both first and second class seat tickets are sold out. The ticket fare for a standing ticket is the same with that of a second class seat. Passengers holding the standing ticket need to stand along the aisle or at the connection of two carriages on the way.

Other Transportation Options:

1. Transfer in Other Railway Stations

Since the Yangshuo to Nanning trains as well as Nanning to Yangshuo trains are less, the schedule may not fit the travel time of some passengers. Or, sometimes, the tickets are sold out. In these cases, they could transfer in nearby cities, such as Guilin; and both Guilin Station and Guilin North Station can be used. If your travel time is not tight, you can even leave some time for sightseeing in that city.

2. Travel by Long-distance Bus

From Nanning, two departures are available at 10:10 and 16:20 from Langdong Long-distance Bus Station; from Yangshuo, one departure is at 10:00 from South Long-distance Bus Station. Duration is about 5-6 hours and ticket fare is CNY 120-140.

Thank you for your inquiry.

The schedule is correct. Other rides may still pass Yangshuo but without stop there, so passengers cannot board and get off. In this case, they will not be listed on sale list. If you want a morning ride, you may need to go to Guilin first and then to Yangshou. Hope this information can help you.

About 9km, 20min by taxi. No direct public transportation unless you walk 1.5km to reach Dongmenshangwuqu subway station. If you do not want to walk such a long distance, you can use bus w18 to reach the subway station and then take subway line 1 to Nanning East Station.

How long it takes to go from Guilin Station to Guilin West Station?
I may need to make a transfer from Guilin to Guilin West as the Nanning-Guilin and Guilin-Yangshuo trip use different stations. Thank you for your answer?

It would take about an hour by bus No. 22. The most convenient way is to take a taxi, without traffic problem, taxi takes 30min. It would be better if you prepare a little longer on the way in case there is any delay.
