Day Nine

After a good night's sleep in a nice hotel, we wandered the neighbourhood for a bit in search of coffee.

It's time to head to the next city on our list, Guilin, which involves taking the high-speed train.

Guangzhou to Guilin

High-speed train travel works more like a flight instead of a train ride in China. You have to check-in, then go to the "gate" and wait there until the train arrives. Only then will you be allowed access to the platforms and board your train.

At your destination your ticket will be checked again and you can only exit the station if your ticket's destination is correct.


Around 17:00, we arrived at our hotel in Guilin, and after waiting out most of the heavy rain for a couple of hours, we headed out to get dinner, in this case, Korean BBQ.
