If you want to make a trip to a destination in downtown Guilin, using the extensive public-transportation system is the best choice. Bus Number 58 is free for tourists (anything that begins with “5” should be free), and it runs to many local sights, including Xiangshan Hill and Seven-Star Park. Otherwise, most of the city’s public buses stop in front of Guilin’s long–distance bus and train stations. The ticket fee is CN ¥1.0 per person per ride. Also, bringing a detailed city map with you would be a good idea.
