Guilin-Sanjiang highway opened to traffic now


The Guilin-Sanjiang highway, linking Guilin City and Sanjiang Dong Autonomous County in Liuzhou City, was opened to traffic from October 26, 2017.

This 135 kilometers highway was built through mountainous area; and verdant forest, valleys, rivers, terraced fields and remote villages can be see on both sides. With roadbed of 26 meters wide in asphalt concrete, there can accommodate 4 two-way lanes. It is designed with speed limit of 100 km/h.

Thanks to the newly-opened highway, popular tourist destinations are well-connected now; and it is expected to play a positive role in promoting tourism.

Longji Rice Terraces area in Longsheng County, about 90 km from Guilin city, is well-known for its spectacular terraced paddies fields and local ethnic culture of Zhuang & Yao mountain tribes. From Guilin, there is just 1.5-hour drive via expressways to reach Longji Rice Terraces area, instead of 2.5-hour moving on the regular road.

The well-renowned Chengyang Wind and Rain Bridge is located in Sanjiang County, about 168 km northwest of Guilin. This journey passes through beautiful terraced rice fields, rolling mountains and ethnic villages. Via highway, the driving time will be shorten from 4 hours to 2 hours from Guilin to Sanjiang.

    No problem, we can arrange a car for you from Yangshuo to Sanjiang on highway. Bus to Sanjiang from Guilin is not available after high speed train operated. Suggest to rent a car.

    Hi Hussaini,

    The transportation from Guilin to Sanjiang is very convenient now, but still not very convenient in Sanjiang area. You can either take bus or high speed train to Sanjiang. If taking bus, you can change bus at Sanjiang West Station to Chengyang Village. If taking train, you need to take taxi to bus station or directly to Chengyang Village. It is suggested to rent a car and driver for the trip in Sanjiang.
