Took a taxi to the Guilin Train Station which was only a few kilometers away. It was a long eight hour train ride but uneventful. The high-speed train made a lot of stops along the way.
In Nanjing, we arrived at the Nanjing South Railway Station (Nanjingnan). I took the metro to the Jinling hotel. Nanjing is a huge city with lots of tall buildings that are lit up at night. The high-rise hotel was easy to find right behind the subway station in the center of the city.
