It's really a big question. If you are asking about going around between different cities in Guangxi, then high speed trains are recommended. But there are exceptions. For instance, from Guilin to Yangshuo, a Li River cruise should not be missed. If going to some remote areas, like Longji Rice Terraces, manybe only buses are available, in which case I recommend you to hire a more comfortable private car. Hope this helpful~

Not any more. A self-testing antigen is enough; it should be down within 48 hours before arrival.

Ticket buying
Same-day tickets for entrance or attractions become difficult to buy in China. Can we buy ones for Ming tombs, Badaling great wall (Beijing), Dujiangyan irrigation system (Chengdu), etc.

Nowadays, most attractions have an official website and an official wechat account offering ticket booking serivice. But they are mostly in Chinese only. Maybe you can ask help from someone who knows Chinese.
