Bus To Guanyuan

on Monday, 17 May 2010

I managed to set my alarm correctly this time and woke up at 5:30am. I went up to the reception and she kindly got me a cab to the bus station. There was only about four people on the bus, so plenty of room. As we set of a few more people got on at various stops, but the bus was only ever half full. It took about ten hours to get to Guanyuan and once there I headed straight to the train station to try and book a ticket. I still hadn’t decided where I was going to go, but in the end sided with Xi’an as I hadn’t found anywhere else that was that exciting. The ticket was 139Y for the 11 hour journey on a hard sleeper. A nice guy at the booking office booked the ticket for me. The train wasn’t due for about 3 hours, so I got some supplies and looked round town. I ended up going to sleep quite early and the next morning would be in Xi’an at about 5:15am.
