Don't worry. You can still take the airport shuttle bus, which will operate until the last flight arrival. The ticket fare is CNY15 to 20 per person.

My flight leaves at 22:25 pm in Guilin.
I plan to leave around 19:30 pm in downtown area to do some last minute tour. I want to know is there going to be a airport shuttle bus operating during that time to go to the airport. I want to also know what bus do I take if I was to leave From GL downtown. If not what are my options?

What is the best way to get from Banyan Tree Yangshuo to Guilin Liangjiang International Airport
when flight takes off at 13:15?
And how long will the ride take and how much will it cost?
Do I need to arrive at the airport 2 hours in advance?

Answered by Shay from USA | Dec. 11, 2018 00:16

Yes, you need to arrive at the airport 2 hours in advance. You can first take a taxi or ask the hotel to arrange a car to transfer you to Yangshuo Bus Station, taking about 25-30 minutes. Then at the bus station, take the direct airport bus to Liangjiang Airport. The bus schedule is 06:00, 09:00, 11:00, 13:00, 15:00.17:00, 19:00 and 21:00. The duration is about 1.5 - 2 hours. The ticket fare is CNY50 per person.

I land at Guilin airport at 20h. There seems to be some contradictory information
- can someone help clarify the up-to-date facts?

- will there still be a shuttle bus running to Guilin city centre leaving after 20h?
- will there still be a shuttle bus running to Yangshuo leaving after 20h?

I don’t mind where I go, I just want to be able to get a bus! Thanks :)
