  1. Does this train station have a baggage check where I can leave my luggage for the day to go explore xingping town before leaving to Guangzhou at night?

    • I just can’t remember whether there is a left luggage at Yangshuo Railway Station. Or at least I didn’t see any. You may contact the Tourism Information Service Center, which is located beside the bus ticket office at Yangshuo station. Good Luck.

    • It depends on your travel date, and where you plan to travel from ? I would always suggest you to keep track of the ticket availability on your route. If it sells quickly, you may consider buying in advance.

  2. Will reach yangshuo railway station at 10am+ . i want to go to xingping to visit the ancient old town then after that take river raft to Yangdi. From Yangdi go back to yangshuo west street. Can someone please advise on routes,tranportation etc. Thanks in advance.

  3. Hey Jack, most informative post I’ve found so far on Yangshuo train station yet!. Where is the easiest place to rent a scooter? Is there a rental shop at the train station? Also, any words of advice for someone who does not speak or read Chinese? Better to book transportation online? Or can I find my way on the busses? Thanks!!

    • Hi, the Yangshuo train station is far from the Yangshuo Town, and there are no any shops there except the tourist office and the bus office. No problem at all if you don’t speak Chinese, just show some Chinese worlds like “我要买到阳朔的汽车票(I would like to buy bus tickets to Yangshuo)” to the office staff, then they will issue and print the tickets for you. The bus tickets cannot be bought online.
      The blue buses are next to the ticket office. Don’t be worried. It is easy to buy tickets and go to Yangshuo county.

      • The scooter is EVERYWHERE on Yangshuo West street at 40-50 rmb cost but it’s easier if you come from the airport and take the green bus number (line 5) to West Street
