Flight VS. Trains

It is needless to say that traveling by air is the fastest which merely takes about 3 hours, but the ticket price is the highest except in some low seasons; the longest journey is no other than ordinary rail types which takes 17.5 - 26.5 hours or so, but it saves money and is preferred by budget travelers; although only one pair of bullet trains are in service currently, they are popular for the great cost performance and the journey time is 9 - 9.5 hours.

Which station in Guilin?
I will take G1501 and I want to know which station do I need to alight? Is it the North Station? I heard North Station is the high speed station? Is it far from my hotel Riverside Inn Guilin Central?

This G1501 will stop at Guilin Railway Station, the one in the city center, not the North Station. The address is No. 39 South Zhongshan Road. It is not far from your hotel, only 1km. You can even walk to reach the hotel.
