  1. 1. Please advise the distance from Sanjiang Bullet train station to Chengyang.
    2. What is the approximate one way taxi fare from the station to Chengyang.

    Thank you.

    • Hi, there
      1. The distance is about 28 kilometers from Sanjiang South to Chengyang Bazhai..
      2. I guess the taxi fare may range from CNY 40 – 60 (Just for reference). You can also take a minivan shared with others, but the minivan won’t go until it is full. That will cost you 20 – 25 yuan. Just for reference.

    • Hi,
      Currently, there are only one high speed train D2828 from Yangshuo to Sanjiang South (SanjiangNan), departing at 16:52 and arriving at 18:01. Journey time is 1h09m. If this train doesn’t suit your time, I would advise you to take a train from Yangshuo to Guilin first then a connecting train to Sanjiang South.
      You may check the live schedule and ticket availability at Just enter”Yangshuo” and Sanjiang nan. Hope it helps.
