We are looking at taking the high speed rail from Shenzhen North Station to Guilin late August or early September. Our plan is to make our way from Hong Kong to SZ on a Saturday, spent 1 to 2 nights sight seeing in SZ. Then hop on the High Speed Railn to Guilin on Monday, we can taxi from easily from our SZ hotel to the Train station instead of trying to cross the border from HKG on the day .
Not sure what is there to do or where to stay. We are not into the theme parks, just seeing SZ in general. The OCT Bay mall looks good, any other suggestions? Should we stay near the SZ North Station? Would prefer a 4 star type hotel, cleanilness and security is very important. I'm sure I can manage to use the metro to get around, but arrival and departure by taxi would be better with luggages.
