Woke up late yet again and after getting ready Ruth and I went to the Yu Yuan Garden. It was a very pretty garden but there was so many people there that it took us a little while to get in. The garden was like a maze it had so many different paths and hidden areas to explore that you could've spent hours there but we didn't have much time as we were getting on a train that night to go to Guilin.
After looking at the garden Ruth and I walked to the main shopping area to get some food and also look for an adapter, but I couldn't find one so we just go some food and had to race back to the hotel to met the rest of the group. We collected our things and got onto the bus and headed for the station.
Again going through the process and lining up at security and fighting with the locals to get our bags scanned we made our way to the waiting room where we were again stared at. This train station was definitely the best out of all the stations as it was new and had escalators so made it easy to get onto the platform. We boarded the train at 5pm and this time I was sharing with Lindsay, Mario, Hayley, Kate and Siobhan. I got the bottom bunk again so I was happy.
