I think you’d better taking a Fast train ticket . 1hand half. 88yuan. From Nanning east station (南宁东站)to Baise (百色站) train station. From nanning central is cheaper. Everybody take the train for moving. I don’t take anymore the bus ticket. When you are here you can use taxi easily. Train is faster, cheaper and more comfortable !!

Yes, there are buses from Baise Bus Station to Leye, and it works in the festival.

Asked by danb from USA | Jan. 02, 2017 05:57Reply
We would like to visit Bama. Can we get there from Baise City? Is there a bus we can use?
Or perhaps a taxi or hire a car with a driver? How far away are the two places and what is the approximate cost?
Thank You

Yes, I remember that the you can take the direct coach from the Main Bus Station. There are frequent buses to Bama from 6:10 to 20:00, and the bus fare is around CNY40. The distance between these two places is around 76 miles.
If by hiring a private car, it costs around CNY 200 for the single trip.

Cora, Thank you for your reply. We just return from Bama. We took the train from Nanning ( Langdong station, the downtown one on Youai Lu) to Bama. The trip took about 6 hours. We had one pit stop at the halfway point of our trip. I heard that there will be a more direct route ( a new highway) in the year 2018. The bus trip will only take 2 hours or so I was told. Saw some construction that was part of the new road.We had a good trip. Bama is an interesting place to visit. The pace there can be much more slower and peaceful. Thanks again. Danb

PS; Since there are trains to BS City it might be a bit quicker to go by train from Nanning and then take a bus to Bama. I believe our RT ticket cost 240-260 yuan and the bus did travel up near BS but not into that city. The last 1-2 hour of the trip, the terrain transited from flat land to a mountainous narrow two lane road. The twisting and turning road with various speeding vehicle was an interesting ride. Had a very nice view of the countryside.

The quickest way from Nanning is to take a high speed train to Tian Yang station and then the local bus
