Guilin Train Schedule (train search & ticket booking)
The Guilin Railway Station (South Station) and North Railway Station are the two main railroad passenger transport stations in the city. Every day many trains arrive and depart, as the city is a hub of the Hunan-Guangxi Railway and Guilin - Guangzhou High Speed Railway. The South Station is located to the south of the city center and is more easily reached than the North Station. The North Railway Station is situated in the northern suburbs of the city and has less convenient links with the city center. If the train you take stops at both of the stations, it's better to get off at the South Station where handy transportation to the surrounding places is available, as well as trains connecting to China's major cities.

Tip: It's not easy to buy sleeper tickets at the Guilin sales office, as the city is a mid-route stop rather than a terminus. Therefore, it's better to buy tickets departing from the city in advance.

|Cruise Ship on Li River|
Another dock is Zhujiang Dock which is 32 kilometers (about 20 miles) southeast of the city center and two-kilometers (about 1.2 miles) by waterway from Mopanshan Dock. Covering an area of 48,200 square meters (0.0186 square miles), Zhujiang Dock is 400 meters (about 0.25 miles) long and has nine berths, a big waiting building, and a parking lot. This dock is mainly designed for foreign tourists and is the must-use dock for high officials from both China and foreign countries.
Every year more than 300,000 tourists take the cruise ship from Zhujiang Dock to travel along the Li River. Traveling the Li River to Yangshuo is a journey of about 54 kilometers (about 34 miles). The cruise ships from the berths downtown to Yangshuo usually set off at 9:00 and 9:30, and will take about 4.5 hours to complete the journey. A gentle breeze will caress your face and picture postcard riverside scenery will please your eyes as the beauty unfolds around you. However, remember that in winter the water level is rather low, so the cruise is limited to just 10 kilometers (about 6.2miles) instead of the normal 82 kilometers (about 51 miles).

About the public transportation, take bus no.81 to Tian'etang Bus Stop. Then transfer to bus no.9 Zhujiang Line to Zhujiang Port.
