HY Xman Hotel Xin Zhu Road Branch
How can we go from Nanning East Station to the hotel? Please kindly advise.

Answered by Norris from USA | Dec. 04, 2019 17:27

There is one bus suitable for you, bus b17. You can take this bus from railway station and get off at Xinzhu Street (maybe the 16th stop as it shows on map). The hotel is nearby within 200m. If you do not want to risk by using city bus, taxi is the other option. It would be around 30min and cost CNY30 to 40.

Thank you for your inquiry.
The ticket availability on our website follows Railway Company’s information. If it shows no ticket online, we are sorry that we cannot buy the ticket. However, you may consider to choose other rides with similar time to Guangzhou first and then change another ride to Nanning. Although it takes long time on the way, you may able to find options with similar departure time. Wish you a good luck!

If I will reach Nanning East by G2914 at 16:38pm, Can I catch the T8701 to Hanoi?

Answered by Matilda from NORWAY | Jan. 27, 2019 17:10

It is a little risky. You need at least 30min by metro to go from East Station to Nanning Station. T8701 will departs at 6:05pm. You also need time for security check, finding direction etc. If there is any delay, you would miss the second trip.
