Evening all,

I am currently struggling to find out if there is a way of booking train or bus tickets from Guilin; Nanning or Kumming etc to Hanoi on the internet. Because we need proof of onward travel for our Chinese visa's, we want to buy tickets which we might use - and we don't intend on flying! The few flights I have managed to find are also fairly expensive and so I don't want to waste money if I can help it! If anyone knows how I can book these tickets OR if there are any budget tours which spend a few days in southern china and a few days in north Vietnam that'd be amazing!

i guess no such service like book train ticket online, the train from kunming to hanoi is less than 300 rbm, and u can only buy it when u r in kunming, u may try to book the air ticket and then cancel it, thats what most people do

There was train from Kunming to Hanoi before but not until now. You can take a bus from Kunming to Lao Cai, on the way visit sapa some day, then take a night train to Hanoi. I think it's good way for travel and save money!
have a good trip!
