Guilin to Nanning

Hi

How easy is it to book a train from Guilin to Nanning. Are trains usually full and I need to take whatever is available or is availability relatively common. I plan to book early June. Thanks in anticipation......Kevin

I took that train once and it was full. You can buy the tickets when you are in China or if you are the nervous type you can use an agent to book when tickets are released (20 days ahead).

For your information, the fast train tickets at weekends and festival periods are easily sold out. Please note that May 31-June 2 is the Dragon Boat Festival when the travel is much busier than usual time. If your transfer dates happen to be such time or you like thing settled before the departure, it is better to use online agent to secure the ticket availability early. This one is mentioned a lot here: www.china-diy-travel.com

It's safe to book at least two days earlier, espl. when your trip happens by weekend. There are two kinds of trains, sub-high speed D which takes only 2.5-3 hrs, and normal kinds like T, K taking 5-8 hrs.
