Although the normal rides take longer time compared with high speed ride, they are still good options, especially those overnight sleeper trains like K22, K1628, Z286 and K457. The overnight sleeper type can save the hotel cost and daytime for visiting, thus they are still popular among tourists.

Travelers who are interested in the normal rides may choose Z type first if schedule fits since they are the fastest and has fewer stopovers than K type.


Except rail service, there are also flights offered by Shandong Airlines and China Southern Airlines. However, the flights are not operated daily and only available on some appointed dates each week. Also, the price for flight ticket is usually higher. In this case, bullet trains are more recommended for this trip.

Questions & Answers on Wuhan - Guilin Train
Asked by Weston from ITALY | Dec. 19, 2019 18:13Reply
Is there any chance getting tickets on train G439 or G1545?
I see only tickets on G431 at 7am. I suppose the time is too early for us. We do not want to wake up at 4am to be ready for the train.

Thank you for your inquiry.

For G439 and G1545, Wuhan is not their beginning station. The trains originated from other stations before Wuhan and take it as a stopover only. Usually very few tickets are offered from stopover station. Sorry about the inconvenience. Sometimes, when the travel date is approaching, unbooked seats may release again to stopover stations. You may consider to book other trains on same day first if they can still work for your schedule. If tickets did released on G439 and G1545, you can ask for a change. However, there could be a change fee 0 to 20% occurs. Hope for your advanced notice.

Soft sleeper beds on Z286 from Guilin North to Wuchang.
We got beds 25 and 27 on this train. Are we in same room? If not together, how can we make a change? We are both female travelers and would free safer to be together in same room. Thank you.

This two beds are together. I suppose one lower bed and one upper bed in opposite direction within same cabin. It should be the 7th cabin in this carriage.

Cruise down to Yangshuo and back in one day?
I plan to take the first train from Wuhan to Guilin and then take cruise to Yangshuo. After a quick visit in Yangshuo, I will back to Guilin by train or by bus. Do you think it is doable in one day?

It is a pity that this travel plan cannot work. The cruise to Yangshuo all depart at morning time, so you cannot catch it even you take the first ride. If you take the overnight sleeper rides the day before, it may works.
