Train to Guilin
the train tables to and from Guilin
If you are in Yunnan you may want to get a train to Guilin. It's a 3 weeks cycling journey so if you don't have the time, the train is a great option.
The times below are correct at the time of printing but can change without notice at any time. Best advice? When booking your ticket, sort out if the train is on time or not. And be always about 30 minutes in advance at the railway station.

Legend of the table:

S.E.: Special Express, trains beginning with the letter "T", ("tekuai" in Chinese). These are the fastest and best-equipped trains, all with air-conditioning, and also the most expensive. Most of the international trains are included in this group.
Express : Trains beginning with the letter "K", ("kuaisu" in Chinese.) They all have air conditioning. Most of the trains in China are now included in this group.
Fast: Trains with only numbers, no letters. Some have air conditioning (noted on the timetable as AC). In Chinese these are called "pukuai".
Snail Train : These trains are extremely slow, stop at almost every station, and have poor facilities. In Chinese they are called "manche". There are very few Snail Trains operating in China now.
