Questions & Answers on Guilin to Shanghai Train
Asked by Felicia from CANADA | Jan. 12, 2020 19:15Reply
When it is good time to buy flight ticket from Shanghai to Guilin?
I am looking for flight in June, is it too early to book now?
Answers (1)
Answered by Absalom from TURKISH | Jan. 13, 2020 17:45

It is indeed too early. Flight schedule for summer time is not fixed yet and only full price tickets. You can wait until about 30 to 60 days, price would be much better at that time.
Asked by Parrish from USA | Jun. 10, 2019 02:55Reply
Can I hop-on and hop-off at some cities before Shanghai?
Is any city recommended for visiting along the way?
Answers (1)
Answered by Parrish from USA | Jun. 10, 2019 19:52

It is very pity that the hop-on and hop-off plan cannot work. For rail service in China, you cannot back with same ticket once you get off. So if you plan to stop at some cities between, you need to plan it beforehand and buy tickets accordingly. Personally, I like Changsha and Hangzhou. If you have plenty of time, Huangshan is good too!
