Getting Around

Guilin has buses that run throughout the city, with certain routes created for tourists travelling to popular sightseeing spots. Taxis are also readily available and can either be hailed in the street or called in advance. Travellers should ensure that drivers use the taxi's meter and should also have their destination written in Chinese, since few drivers speak English.

Cycling is a popular way of getting around, and many cafes and hotels offer bicycles for hire. There are two main stations for rail transport, linking the city centre with the rest of the country through the Hunan-Guangxi Railway. Aside from ground travel, there are also two docks that facilitate tours down the Li River to Yangshuo.
