Where in Guilin I arrive if take bus from Yangshuo.
Hi there,

I plan to go to Guilin from Yangshuo by bus. I think the bus should drop me off at Guilin General Bus station near the railway station at Zhongshan road but after read this article I am confused and worried.
Is it true that after 31 July 2018 bus from Yangshuo also drop off the passenger at the new South coach terminal at Kaifeng /West Chadian road ? It is too far away from city centre. And I can't find the coach station at google map. There is no West Chadian road only Chadian road and it is in the east of Kaifeng road.
Please help explain to me to make it clear.

The article is right and the bus just stops off at South Coach Terminal in Xiangshan District. You can take Bus Line K99 back to the city center.

Hi, I've taken the Guilin Li River rafts two times, in 2007 and in 2016.
however, I've now been told that the rafts are not in operation in (next month) but cruise boats will be. Can you confirm that operations are not performed in the winter months?

Don't worry. The rafts only operate between Yangdi and Nine-horse painting Hill. Generally speaking, it will operate normally in winter months. Have a nice trip!

Yes. There are high-speed trains running between Zhuhai and Zhongshan, and you should take a high-speed train from Zhuhai Railway Station and get down at Zhongshan or Zhongshan North Railway Station. The train trip will last about 30 minutes.

As to the route from Zhongshan to Guilin, there are direct high-speed trains which will take you to Guilin West or Guilin North Railway Station. It will spend around 3.5 hours on the way.

There is no direct high-speed train from Guilin to Meizhou, so I advice you to get to Guangzhou by high-speed train firstly, and then take a normal train to get to Meizhou. Hope it helps.

It’s about 6km and you can take bus 30 to Jiefangqiao, then walk south for several minutes to reach there. The bus fare is CNY 2.
1-2h is enough for the visit.
