Through communicating with the staff in Guilin station and researching relevant information, I learned that before the opeartion of high-speed railway, only a Xianggui railway traversed. Channel capacity and buses operated in railway transportation were relatively limited, so Guilin's tourism industry with “mountains and rivers top worldwide” was restricted to a certain extent. After Hengliu high-speed railway was operated in the end 2013 and Guiguang in 2014, as the intersection of the two railway lines, 8 new high-speed railway stations were consecutively constructed in Guilin, successfully realizing "a city with nine stations and two high-speed railways". Thanks to this, Guilin North Station evolves from a small station with few buses and trains everyday to a large station with surging people now. And Guilin, as the junction of multiple high-speed railways, each day the number of D-series high-speed trains reaches 140, connecting 14 provinces and municipalities nationwide. Every 10 minutes or so there is a train stops by Guilin. About three hours are spent from Guilin to Nanning, Guiyang, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Changsha and other provincial capital cities. In addition, departing from Guilin, the farthest east can be reached to Shanghai, the west to Lijiang, the south to Zhuhai and the north to Beijing. It took two days to arrive in the distant north before, while now maximum 10 hours!
