    The cheapest (and best) guilin boat tours are with locals at the docks. I think back in early 08 I got two or three hours for 150rmb?... something like that. He waited on me, would stop and take photos whenever I wanted, and even used his cousin to get me tickets to another attraction for half off (I couldn't believe it either lol)... the other people were on rather large boats and of course paid more... The train usually leaves at night and takes about a day... expect about 400 for a sleeper.
