  • icon
    6. How to get to Yangshuo?
    icon

    From Guilin: The most common route is from Guilin. You can take a bus, taxi, or the picturesque Li River cruise. The cruise offers scenic views of the stunning karst landscape and usually takes 4-5 hours.

    By Air: While Yangshuo doesn't have its own airport, the nearest is Guilin Liangjiang International Airport. From there, you can take a bus or taxi to Yangshuo, which is approximately 70 kilometers away.

    By Train: Guilin has two main train stations - Guilin Railway Station and Guilin North Railway Station. Both stations have trains coming from major cities like Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou. Upon arrival in Guilin, you can continue your journey to Yangshuo by bus or taxi.

    Direct Trains to Yangshuo: Yangshuo also has its own train station, which connects to some major cities. However, this station is located a bit outside the main town, so you'd need a short taxi or bus ride to reach the town center.

Excellent travel company!
I did the Beijing-Xi'an-Guillin-Yangtze river-Shanghai group tour in April 2024. The tour was well organised and the guides knew so much about each site. Vincent also helped me extend my trip to visit Suzhou and Hangzhou. At every destination I was met by knowledgeable helpful guides who went above and beyond their duty. The guides spent so many hours touring us around each city ensuring we got the best services and experiences offered. They also assisted us to taste the best street food at every location. The guides were essential in helping us navigate the high speed rail/airports and local taxis/didi. I would definitely recommend this service to anyone wishing to visit China! It's very helpful to have all your transportation and hotels organized by experienced staff.I enjoyed my month stay in China thanks to Asian odyssey!
