Hi. Does anyone know what the taxi fare would cost from Guilin Airport to Liuzhou city centre?
Answers (1)
Answered by Alex from THAILAND | Dec. 26, 2019 19:48

The distance is around 150km between these two places, so I'm afraid there is no taxi driver will take you. Actually, you can take intercity bus from airport. It departs from 9:30 to 22:00 with frequency of 1 hour and CNY75.

I will arrive in Guilin airport at 10pm. That is great to hear that there is a shuttle bus that leaves after every arrival so I will be able to get to the city by bus then. Where does the shuttle leave you in the city? Thanks!

This only shuttle bus night line will take you to Minhang Hotel.
