When making a transfer in Guangzhou
Do we need to go through the security check again at Guangzhou South Station? If yes, do we will need 1 hour break before taking the train to Yangshuo?

If you are making a transfer only, you do not have to exit the station and do security check again. You can show the paper tickets of second trip and use the transfer passage to reach waiting hall for the checkin gate of second trip. In this case, around 30min should be fine. If you are a group with child or senior travelers, maybe a little bit longer.

There is only one morning train from Shenzhen to Yangshuo?
No afternoon options? I see two rides for return but one from Shenzhen? Please confirm, thank you.

Indeed, only one morning ride. I guess the other one just passes without stop. If you need afternoon ride, you can consider to go to Guangzhou first to make a transfer. There are some afternoon options.

Thank you for your inquiry.
The Railway Company is making adjustment of the rail schedule. Therefore, these trains are under adjustment at this moment. They should back to service again but the detailed date is not clear yet at this moment. You may choose to wait a few more days. Once they are released for sale again, the online status should be updated too. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Can I book to Guilin and get off in Yangshuo?
There is only a morning train and with no ticket. So Can I book a ticket to Guilin but get off at Yangshuo?

It is no problem to get off in advance. The problem is that only of them stop in Yangshuo, G2902. If you choose other rides, they won't stop there, you can only reach Guilin first and then back.

Thank you for your inquiry!
This problem did happens! Like you said, more tickets were offered from Liuzhou so there are still tickets available from this station. It is fine to board from halfway but if you do so, it is important to collect the paper ticket out before the departure time of Liuzhou. Hope this can help you.
