Guilin Transport

Last updated by chinatravel at 2013-11-3

Intercity express coaches arrive and depart from the intercity station. The coach network in China is very good. Most routes from major cities are serviced by new long distance coaches that are comfortable and have seatbelts fitted to the coaches. Tickets are obtained from the bus station.

Buses to Yangshuo, Longsheng and Xin'an leave from the Guilin Long Distance Bus Station close to the South Rail Station. Tickets are always easy to get as there are plenty of departures daily in normal days, however, advance booking is needed during public holidays such as the Chinese New Year, Labor's Day, Qingming Festival, Duanwu Festival, Mid-autumn Festival. Bus departing from the bus station to Yangshuo is called: Direct or Non-stop Bus which means it won't stop to take passengers on the way and all the passengers get on the bus at the station. Different to the direct bus, there is another kind of bus serving Yangshuo which leave at the South Railway Station Square-just outside the railway station. Ticket price for this kind of bus is a bit cheaper and it leaves more frequently than those depart from the bus station but the bus condition is usually worse and you may be unluckily enough to find locals smoke and talk loudly.

Note: No staff speak English in the bus station and the departure time is only annouced in Chinese so you need to pay specila attention to the departure time of your bus. Get to the station at least 20 minutes ealier to get acquainted with the surroundings.

It is a very big garden, takes a long time to visit all the places. You’d better get a map and decide where to go and see in advance. There is the prayer hall where ancient emperors prayed for harvests, the round square where ancient emperors used to hold praying ceremonies, all are world heritages. What attracted most about the Temple of Heaven is that every Monday morning, many local Chinese people would gather here and do some morning exercises. Some play Taichi, some sing folk songs, and some dance waltz.

The Temple of Heaven with the surrounding park is one of the largest structures in Beijing. So it helps to know what you are looking for, unless you want to walk all day. Enter through the northern or the eastern gate, and go to the main temple (you’ll see it), and then continue southward until you reach the southern gate. If you have time and energy left you can also have a look at the fasting palace in the west. If you go there before 9 in the morning the Temple of Heaven park is a good place to go if you want to see local Beijingers doing their morning exercises and tai chi.

The architectural feature of this building complex is imposing and the associated stories are very interesting.
