It seems like ages since i went on a rant about what assholes the people of Guilin and Yangshuo are, so here i am! Back with a review of Guilin West Railway Station
Why go here?
Increasingly there’s more trains going here, to ease connection i think.
What is there around Guilin West Railway Station?
There’s nothing, nothing but black taxi drivers who know 3 words of English. After the nuclear holocaust there will be nothing but roaches and Guilin taxi drivers.
How do you get from Guilin West to Guilin?
Avoid the black cabs who will rip you off, and go for a proper taxi, who will try not to put the meter on abd rip you off. Be careful they don’t have a fixed meter. Journey shoukd cost no more than 45 even with traffic.
What is there to eat at Guilin West Railway Station?
There’s the normal shit supermarkets, and many shops selling “Guilin specialities”. The only guilin speciality is being dishonest.
Inside the station there’s one overpriced restaurant, a “collection of Guangxi special local products shop” that has a drinks fridge turned off that actually makes the drinks warmer than if they’d not been in the fridge.

It’s shit and people will try to rip you off.
