Yangshuo (Guilin) to Sanya

by Tanjavd

What is the quickest and easiest way from Yangshuo to Sanya? (except flying)


Re: Yangshuo (Guilin) to Sanya

by phoebechan

you can take a bus to GUILING city first and then take air to Sanya phoenix international airport

Thre are ferries that go from the mainland to Hainandao and there is a train, which uses a ferry, as well. You should be able to use a search - something like Hianandao mainland ferry - then work out SanYa from there.

You can take the train from Guilin to Zhangjiang, from Zhangjiang to Xuwen, then cross the strait by ferry to Haikou onward to Sanya. It takes too long, so forget about it, just fly from Guilin to Sanya as the previous post suggested.

If you don't like flying, take bus or train to Guangzhou and take overnight train Guangzhou to Sanya (the train drove right into the ferry, you can not get off the train). I did that last year, the first train from Beijing hit to Sanya. Also might be possible from Nanning- Haikou to Sanya.

This traveller expressly mentioned "except flying". Some people evidently don't read properly...
I would suggest that you take a long-distance bus for Yangshuo -- Guangzhou, then overnight train Guangzhou -- Sanya.

Travel Tips for Guilin

Visit the caves if it's raining

by herzog63

I picked a day where it was pouring rain to visit the caves. It worked out great as I was underground and enjoying myself instead of sloshing around in the rain. Also it was quite warm inside the caves unlike outside.

Street kitchen

by magor65

It is always interesting to find the non-touristic places. Because Yangshuo is small it was easy to walk around and get to the places not frequently attended by tourists. Here's a street kitchen. It looks O.K. but we didn't join in.

A stroll along Li River

by hooiluangoh

Take a walk along the river Li (or Li-jiang, jiang meaning river in Mandarin).

If it fancies you, bargain with the locals hawking bamboo raft trips on the river, and let the boatman drop you off at one of the many karst hills along the river.

Fubo Shan - 1,000 Buddha Cave

by Willettsworld

Connecting with the Pearl-Returning Cave, the Thousand-Buddha Cave lies hidden in the hill. It has three levels with a total area of 133 square meters (159 square yards). Visitors climbing up along the winding stairs will find themselves attracted to the 239 statues of Buddha in 36 enshrines from the later Tang Dynasty situated on the upper level, along with mural paintings from the Song Dynasty (960-1279). All of the artworks bear exquisite carvings.

Solitary Beauty Peak

by yipsufen

Located in the Normal University of Guangxi and Jingjiang Prices City in the centre of Guilin, the peak is graceful and imposing and has a good fame of "the pillar under southern sky". It is often compared to be a king as it erects from the flat ground like a unique column propping the Guilin city. Its summit offers the best panoramic view of the Guilin city.

There are more than 160 cliff-side inscriptions of calligarphy and poem, among which are valuable treasures.

Inside the Peace Cave under the peak, there are 60 chinese style zodiacal signs (Tai Sui) carved on the wall that are considered to be one of the world cultural wonders.

216m above sea level. 306 steps up to the peak and it takes about 20 minutes. Mind that the steps are very steep and with little space for resting your tired feet. If your heart is weak, avoid climbing up alone. During foggy days, nothing much can be seen on top.
