So you’ve decided to take a trip to Yangshuo, but how to get to our beautiful village? Well there are many options!
The nearest airport to Yangshuo is Guilin International airport which is very well serviced (and often very cheap) from the rest of China. It’s a two hour drive to Yangshuo from Guilin. Local taxis will try and charge RMB 400 up, or there is a bus for around RMB 45. Alternatively take the airport express to Guilin (RMB 25) where you can take a bus from Guilin Train Station
The slow train hub is Guilin Station which is connected to most major Chinese cities with sleepers to places like Xi’an, Beijing and Shenzhen.
There are hourly fast trains from Guangzhou to Yangshuo Station, and two per day from Shenzhen to Guilin and back. There’s even a fast train from Guilin to Beijing, although PR be and duration make it a poor option.
Long Distqnce bus
If you have bladder like racehorse it’s worth doing the sleeper buses from Guangzhou, or Shenzhen. If you like a few beers during your journey avoid.
The “local bus” goes from Guilin Station to Yangshuo North bus station. Avoid touts, or peoooe trying to sell you tickets. Simply get on the bus and hand over RMB 20 when they come to you. Ask or handover more, and it will cost more.
Easy enough? See you in Yangshuo.
