As there are no direct high speed trains running between Yangshuo and Fenghuang yet, tourists have to make transfers at Guilin North Railway Station (Guilinbei) and Changsha South Railway Station (Changshanan). Just be noticed that the trains linking Guilin and Changsha are mostly using Guilin North Railway Station, which is far from Guilin’s city center. Below are Jack’s suggestions:

From Yangshuo to Fenghuang : Firstly, you need to take a bus or a taxi to get to Yangshuo Railway Station first, which is just a 40 minutes bus ride from the town to Yangshuo train station. Then in Yangshuo Railway Station, there are frequently high speed trains to Guilin North, Guilin West and Guilin Station. You just choose Guilin North for your transfer station to Changsha South, because nearly all the trains to Changsha are departing from Guilin North and arriving at Changsha South . Remember to alow at least 30 – 40 minutes for making the connection. The train ride between Guilin & Changsha will take you 3-3.5 hours. From Changsha South, there are 5 daily trains to Fenghuang Gucheng Railway Station.

From Fenghuang to Yangshuo : You just take one of the five daily high speed trains from Fenghuanggucheng station to Changsha South first (Fenghuang to Changsha train page), then a connecting bullet train to Guilin North. From Guilin North, you chang to a train to Yangshuo Railway Station, which is just a 40-50 minutes bus ride to West Street in Yangshuo Town.
